The Climb

Just before one gets to The Cave area, on the right is a thin fingers crack (the lower half obscured by other boulders). This is the deceptively hard Digit's Delight. It approached from either side, as it rests in the middle of the forthcoming switchback.

There are bolts for the TR so no need to bring any fancy gear if that's the plan. Apr 29, 2006

The bolts added to TR this are a nice convenience. Thanks for the update mschlocker May 23, 2006

I can't imagine rating this route anything less than four stars. This is another Woodson classic. A poor sequence will definitely beat you down but avoiding the bad sections accompanied with good footwork brings out the best in this one! Feb 11, 2009

I usually find Woodson ratings right on to slightly stiff, but this is pretty soft for 10d. Nonetheless, it's a sweet climb. Mar 4, 2011

Definitely deserves 4 stars, one of the best finger cracks at Woodson where good footwork really pays off. Has anyone climbed the seam on the boulder to the left? Apr 24, 2016
Sweet crack. Rating is pretty finger size dependent. I have fat fingers and felt it was stout. May 23, 2018
