The Climb 

This is the jug to layback route on the west side of the boulder. Always has lots of chalk, and generally people too. It is an anomaly for Woodson, in that it starts climbing out the "cave" via big jugs. After a full sit down rest in the middle, the crux comes at a layback for a reach move at the top. Highly Recommended

TR, bolts

The "Anti-Social" name your referring to is actually for the route Obsession. Somehow, in more contemporary guidebooks, the name of that route was changed. "The Cave" has always been named The Cave as far back as my material goes.

Bypass the "Captains Chair"("sit down rest") for a more sustained difficulty.

I've seen people attack the lower moves in creative ways but the top is pretty precise... worth the hike.

Not that bad to do as a boulder problem if you have a really good pad setup.

I would give it four Stars if you couldn't milk the rest on the chair.
