The Little alcove has some good problems. One of the best is the Alcove Problem.

Getting There 

Looking at the Calvary Boulder turn around and walk down the hill and back up the next hill. The alcove should be our your left. When you see it, you will understand why it is called The Alcove.

Besides for the problems The Rainbow and The Alcove Problem, I did not realize how softly I previously graded all the other problems in this area after a visit today. The problems have more reasonable grades now.

It's easy to get into "gym mode". You're a strong kid. Outdoor is just different. Send me a message, I want a Lynn Woods tour. Climb strong.
