This route definitely makes The Woods' top ten list. Just to the right of Sea World proper is an arete. The moves are only 5.11, but the pump makes it feel like 5.12.


Six bolts.

This route is fantastic, and one of my favorites in the canyon. Climb fast and enjoy the bouldery moves between frequent clips, then grunt through the final moves to the anchors. Fun fun fun.

Subterfuge is an 30* overhanging blunt arete. 35-40 feet long, you lower off about 15 feet out from the start. Every move is at least .10+, with the very last move (reaching for the horn next to the anchors) being the stoutest.
