Ride The Woody is a fun, pumpy route with spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean. This route follows pockets and incuts up a steep, exposed, overhanging wall. No particular move is very hard, but hang out too long, and the pump can creep up on you.


Ride The Woody is the third bolt line when viewing the Main Wall from left to right.


6 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.

Another good warm-up for the harder routes on the wall.

When we did the FA, there was indeed, a rock protruding from the pockets in the shape of a phallus, hence the name. It was a great hold! I think this geological formation has since been broken off.

Matthias, check out the photo. The woody lives. It also looks like someone recently replaced the third bolt with a fresh stainless 5 piece.

unfortunately during the recent rebolting effort the woody broke off. which is probably good since, although its rad, could have hurt a belayer.

New titanium glue-in bolts thanks to the ASCA. Hard work courtesy of Taylor, Dennis, and Tom.

Ride The Woody now has its own anchors. At the second-to-last bolt, head straight up via a new bolt to anchors, rather than cutting left to the Humboldt Current anchors. Please consider using the new anchors, especially if someone is on Humboldt Current, to avoid clusterf**king the Humboldt Current anchors.
