We show that either of the following hypotheses imply that there is an inner model with a proper class of strong cardinals and a proper class of Woodin cardinals. 1) There is a countably closed cardinal κ ≥ ℵ3 such that □κ and □(κ) fail. 2) There is a cardinal κ such that κ is weakly compact in the generic extension by Col(κ,κ+). Of special interest is 1) with κ = ℵ3 since it follows from PFA by theorems of Todorcevic and Velickovic. Our main new technical result, which is due to the first author, is a weak covering theorem for the model obtained by stacking mice over Kc || κ.
