Seminar Wall (5.11d), Mt. Woodson Photo by Tim Fe...

Current San Diego County Advisories MORE INFO >>>


This Woodson classic follows the knobs about halfway up the middle of Seminar Wall, with an impounding move or three to the left (crux) before following the corner to the top. A direct line up the middle has been done by Eric Knuth, titled "Move Over Junior, 5.12+"


TR bolts. Homemade "ladder" in the back to assist in set-up.

The initial moves are pretty tame but then you shift to the left and subsequent sequence can be tricky. One of the classics of Woodson and should be on everyones tick list.

Had no problems with uncertainty principal, but man, this thing spanked me!

Warmed up on Uncertainty, got shut down on Seminar. I left still baffled at how the traverse goes. (FYI ladder is gone and youll need to hop on someone's shoulder to reach the bolt that protects the slabby scramble to the anchors.)

Fantastic route. Did not find the traverse to the knob to be as challenging as the "set up" for it. The cooler weather we've been experiencing helped a bunch. There is a thick branch behind the boulder that can be used as a step ladder up to the slab, where you can access a bolt to protect your way to the top.
