Topic Author's Original Post - Jan 10, 2017 - 12:54pm PT
The Supertopo Woodson threads of years past were/are a great source of stoke. A place to share beta and stories, ask questions, and hear the real scoop from real climbers who really lived it.

So as Henny would say Ė if you got photos, post 'em. Stories, post 'em. Goals? What are they. Questions, comments, concerns? Let's get that community vibe going again. Old schoolers, beginners, boulderers, topropers, scramblers, whatever. There's been some great conditions recently and I know a lot of people are doing a lot of climbing. Post up.

Thin is in.

Asking for boulder problems makes it a bit more difficult for me. The great attraction with respect to Woodson for me personally has always been the abundance of high quality TRs. Woodson seemed to have a lock on quality TRs of all sorts: cracks, steep face, and slabs. Great stuff, and some of it you'd be hard pressed to top anywhere - imo.

Now that I no longer work down south I haven't been to Woodson more than a few times in the past couple of years. Too bad. Looking at the beginnings of this thread makes me miss the place.

So yeah, if ya got pictures - post 'em up.

That's a nice shot of Head First In The Bushes. It more than a few tries to get up that thing! Perfect conditions are a must! Cool, dry, clean.

Such an awesome Video, that climb looks fantastic!
Still waitng for my Maidenation T shirt!
Size shmedium please.

Some great suggestions I will follow up on! Lemon Chiffon looks great. Does KP's Demise start immediately left of the that big broken edge? or is it more on the East side of the boulder?

Henny, how about any TR's that would be conceivably safe as a high ball? Also, I'll take the top ten TR's too!

A few decades from now, American climbers will realize that San Diego County is one of the best places in the country to live and climb.

Might take fifty years, but it'll happen

Right now it's too spread out, mostly unexplored, or secret. The new Woodson stuff looks epic, guys!

I know you got more

I had an enjoyable day there a couple of decades ago with my buddy Gonamuk.
I would live around there if I could, but their ain't much oil exploration in the area.

Tom Burke, wow.††I remember him always having a giant smile on his face.† RIP, gone way too soon.† Any more where that came from Rob??

I'm no slab expert but trying to improve. I'd agree with Lemon Chiffon, Head First and Substance Abuse. Is I Would Die 4 U a slab?? †It's†thin.† I wish I could add HDTV to my list but, so far, not.
Nick is that photo Greg's Face?† I gotta give that one a try.† I'd like to hear Henny's TR picks too.† Wonder if I can do any of them in this lifetime.

Matteo those bolts are Pervs for Title 9, 5.11c.† Itís called 9th Circuit on Mountainproject.

Here's Ryan getting after a mega classic the other day.
