Mt. Woodson, San Diego. Thousands of high quality granite boulders that are sprinkled over the hillside of the mountain near Ramona. Woodson is quite a special climbing area since many of the boulders are too high for just a crash pad but too short for a legit lead climb. That is why this area is often described as a "world class" top roping area ;) with many of the boulders featuring bolted TR anchors. Climbing styles are typical for California desert granite with many excellent crack and slab climbs and a few face climbing lines. Many classics routes are home to Woodson just as the one in the picture – "Rockwork Orange" (5.10b) is the definition of a perfect dihedral – 30feet/10meters of a perfect corner featuring a parallel sided (splitter) crack between the left and right side. Mostly climbed with ropes due to length and bad landing. @shepherdimages thanks for capturing this one. See you guys out there! Fabi
