Sit start and climb the clean, right-leaning 1 1/4" splitter. The rock quality is excellent.

From a standing start it's a tad harder than Jaws. The sit start bumps up the difficulty and quality a couple notches. The crack is very uniform and packs a punch despite its short stature.

This climb is named in honor of my son, the light of my life. At six years old, he has the perfect size mitts for this problem.


Midway between the Sherwood Forest and Hard as Nails.




Motivated locals, who prefer relative anonymity (kudos - you know who you are) discovered this boulder a year or two ago, buried in dense manzanita and poison oak. Their opinion is that it was most likely unclimbed until a few weeks ago. After making pretty extensive efforts talking to past and present Woodson climbers, I've come to the same conclusion. If you know otherwise, please drop me a line. Feb 11, 2015
