Aces High boulder, as seen from the approach.

Current San Diego County Advisories MORE INFO >>>


Climb up beside and on a white dike. Face climbing with delicate footwork and small hand holds. Not too steep but not too much to hold onto in spots either.


Off the road before you hit the Crucible. Make a left just before 2 parallel propane tanks. There will be a small building on your left. When you see the 2 AC units head downhill to your right. The rock can be seen from here but the climb cannot be seen. A guy line for a power pole is anchored into the rock.

There is also a 5.9 hand crack to the right of Aces High.


5 lead bolts to a bolted anchor. Walk off back.

One of the more underrated routes I've done at Woodson. Would be climbed much more often if it wasn't at the summit. An interesting 3-4 move slabby crux sequence on small edges guards the route. At first the holds seem improbably spaced, but a little finesse will get you there.
