Description [Suggest Change]

The headless horseman is the route that starts at center under the overhang. Climb up the facey crimps then up and right of the overhang finishing up the steep nobs in the head wall face just right of the arĂȘte.

Location [Suggest Change]

Can't miss it on the side of the road at the middle of the summit. One of the most unique rock formations at Mt. Woodson.

How can something be 5.11+ or V6?

V6 is 5.12 to 5.12+ Apr 2, 2015
There's no direct translation V-Scale to YDS. I would imagine the reason is that on TR it feels 5.11+, but way up above pads it's going V6-ish. Apr 3, 2015

It's all about the actual moves, which can't be THAT different if you're TRing it vs. bouldering it. Height or commitment aren't factored into the rating. V6 is on the high end of the 5.12 scale, there's nothing vague about that...I definitely think this page should be edited! Jan 23, 2016
Corrected to V4 (tops). Awfully tall for a boulder problem though. Jan 24, 2016
