Description:

When you reach the Grand Larceny Wall on the trail from the parking area, follow the trail to the left. You will come to Hoods in the Woods. This cliff holds 8 moderate, fun bolted lines. American Heavy is the first line when you reach the cliff. Excellent sustained climbing up a gently overhanging face.
