OK, you may have heard the rumors, they're true. Now that the Ditch is closed, your stuck in Cali and the leap is overrun, or so I've heard from many a visiting climber(I work at a shop in South Lake Tahoe) here's your big chance to check out an area that you have either neglected, because it's the "unknown" or never heard of it entirely. South-facing(Free, unregulated camping, (no fires please), along a beautiful river, robust approaches., Ensure a terrific workout as well as a great crack climbing experience. Check out the info on MT. proj. Ca> Tahoe Vicinity> Woodfords as well as Woodfordsobscurities Supertopo (hopefully someone will post a link to Ron Anderson's guide) You won't be dissapointed or have to wait in line. I'm not fekin around! Dan

I second Chim, hes not fekkin round. The routes there are some of the best around. Two sides different character on awesome granite from one to seven pitches if you wish. In a gorgeous little alpine canyon above the W fork of the carson river.

Good to know! Wish I had more time to visit all that Tahoe offers.

The irony is my first trip to the valley proper in three years coincided with this shutdown! I guess the Tahoe forest gods had other plans for me!

Where did ya send em Chimster? Storm Troopers ? Hand of God? Penial pillar or WTHUT? Chucks chimney on Whites wall? Obscurities of the obscurities ..;^)

Hey, have you done LZA yet? Looking for a consensus of rating for that one.. Thought it was a soft 12 but perhaps it was just the times. but mid/hard 11 seems fair..But the ONSIGHT is the only round that counts. plus,, its a gorgeous lil hunk of quartz laden stone..Once under a solid sheet of 5" deep carpet moss.
