The Wood Block is a small boulder with half a dozen problems from V-easy to V4 on rock that varies from good to very grainy. Sportin' Wood (V-easy), Mahogany (V2) and the Woody Problem (V4) are recommended problems here.

Getting There 

Walk past The Love Nest proper and turn left along a faint trail that parallels the rocky formation to the west (left). The boulder will quickly come into view near the northeast corner of the formation.

Featured Route For The Wood Block

Wood Rasp Arete V-easy 3  California : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : The Wood Block
Balance and lieback up the grainy right-curving arete to an easy mantle/rockover at the top. Grainy but it'll clean up with more traffic. * This problem isn't listed in the Joshua Tree Bouldering Guide but is an obvious line with some good moves that's worth a go when in the area....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
