Yeah, it's still a day or two early. But I guess the early bird gets the worm, eh?

If you have some pictures to post to get this thread going, have at it. If you don't have any, then go get some to post.

I don't have any new pictures yet, something I hope to remedy in a week or so. But to get things started here's a couple from a year or two back.

I'll be there on the first for my start to a new year and season. Spent the Spring, Summer and Fall at Suicide and the last two months at JT ( including a few trips to Rubidoux). Feeling real good.

Here's a photo of Greg posing on an arete that Mark and I climbed last year. Does anyone know the history surrounding this rig? Good rock and fun climbing...two bolts up top for an anchor...

So glad to see that the Woodson thread is off to a good early start next year. DH one-upmanship at its finest. I must say, 2013 seemed like a slow one for the hillock. Was everyone at the Riverside quarry or was it just that there was nothing about the Silk Banana to absorb 400 posts? BTW, Silk Banana is probably at least V8 if you do it one handed. Sick power and body tension. Right handed might be easier than left. That should do it.
Happy new year, drink up, and remember... it's only fun after someone loses an eye.

Hey Jonny, kelly and I are looking forward to seeing you if you get the chance, have you set up for Rainbow with a "local" for a grand tour of a wonderful bouldering area. Have fun, be safe, give a ringalingding, dinner and grog!
Peace

I still think the Coathanger as a highball would be a sporty deal. If something went wrong it would be hard to stay off the road given that hillside/landing. But at least with the road closed to traffic there wouldn't be the insult of getting run over added to the injury of ending up there - hahaha. okay, maybe not.

Cool, counting down a few more days, then meeting JW, Johann, Doug, and whoever else at Woodson. Good times coming up.

Johann, if you're there tomorrow post some pictures.

Is right now prime season down there??


I know nothing of the area but all the pics I see make it look amazing!


Rainbow looks rad too, got to see some maps & pics & it looks high quality. Was offered a tour but have never got down that way, all looks super awesome.

One day.

RyanD - since none of the locals who live in the area are responding to your question, Jan and Feb are usually pretty good for Woodson (IMO). This year seems it may be a little different since we're in a drought and the temps reflect the lack of weather. Next week is forecast to be low/mid 70s, which is a bit warm. Nonetheless, winter months are the best.

Ron - yeah, I used to go to Rainbow a fair bit before it was bought. It has been a long time since I was there so I'm sure there's stacks of new stuff I haven't seen. My schedule is kind of tight with work and the likes, I'll see what JW's plans are and if there is a fit, sounds good.

Cool! Hope you can make it, Rainbow has killer rock, sticky as schit, great edges, etc. The two of you sould have a blast putting up some new stuff. I too haven't been since the 80's with Nay-Gro, Mike Paul...the ususal crew, it was a blast then.

"since none of the locals..."

shortly after he inquired i did drain my brain (not a whole lot there at this point) and gave him my opinion. i typed it all on my cell phone which takes forever and you have to repeat each word 3-4 times before you get it right with a finger nail on a 3 inch screen. and when i went to post it...it didn't/had vanished. so i wasn't about to do it again, especially since my battery was low and figured someone else would answer him in the next post or two. but, it's the thought that counts, eh? lol! didn't check back in on this thread until now and was rather surprised (and disipointed) that someone hadn't responded to someone willing to make the voyage from so far away (or from anywhere, for that matter). so...

Thanks for the reply henny, & splitter. Not sure when I'll be down that way but always lurked on the other Woodson thread & thought it would be a cool detour if I'm ever in the area. Cheers.

Echoing what's been said, the best time to climb at woodson is definitely in the winter. Right now it's a little warm, but much cooler than summer. If you're only around during summer, it could be worth it to check out the area, but optimal conditions typically occur in winter during a post-rain, cold snap period.

I enjoy climbing there in the summer after 6:00. Stays light until almost 8:30 and the temps are usually just right. Catch some great sunsets and views of the lighted up city below.
