Thanks for the pics, Court! It was nice climbing with you and your friends. Hope to climb with you again.

True Value is a great place to climb in winter. Sunny, close to the road; the place is often called Kenny's Crag, since Kenny developed that area. There are 23 sport routs, up to 80 feet, 5.10 - 5.12, easy access, almost like an in door climbing. Great times!

And, Mr. Big, thanks for taking the sharp end!

the granite arch in sac allows dogs inside. not mine though. according to the rules they're not allowed to do anything that real dogs do (bark, play with other dogs, poop, etc)

actually, the black dog (Syd) is one that i am watching for a friend going to chiro school in Hayward. It's a 3 year school so I would say that I half own her (Just don't let maggie hear me say that).

Anybody have an actual topo or description of Hand of God. Thing's been giving me a hard on for several years now. Chim's topo is sort of decipherable, but not really? Rap off (one/two ropes)? Walk off? Looking at doing that in the near future. How about a free preview from your upcoming guidebook, Chim? I'll give a TR of my success/failure, plug your upcoming book, we all come up smelling like roses.

Had a great time in at Wood Hood this weekend! Did Yellow Fin via the Yellow Tail start (also climbed the original start in the chimney behind the bush). Both great options to start the route, thought Yellow Tail was a bit harder and more fun. Note a piece of the corner in the wide down low on Yellow Tail is going to break off someday, might consider taking a proactive approach on it.

Yellow Tail goes up a right facing corner to the roof (left side of pic). The original start (chimney to double hand cracks) is behind the bush. Is this correct?

Jebus - we rapped HoG with a single 70 (60 would work no prob). Pretty much any approach pitch will work. The 11a pitch (p3) looks f'ing classick and very sustained. We TR'd the last pitch of HoG after we did Y.F., and it is hands down the best single pitch of finger locking goodness I've done at the fords. Get on it! (I have an annotated topo I could send ya)

Also did some fun 5.8 in the gulley left of Y.F. and it is a great warm up with just a bit of looseness in the middle and tasty hand jams at the top. Dan - what's the name on this one?

Thanks Dan. Bummer to hear about the financial woes (nothing worse than a thief). Hopefully all your good Woodfords karma will help see you thru this mess. And don't let all us wankers (myself definitely included) who keep asking about the guide, get you stressed my friend. I actually enjoy the shroud of mystery some of the routes have and word of mouth descriptions. Make finally sending them more of an accomplishment.

Anyway, hats off to you, Mark Bauer, Kenny Thompson, Ryan Curry, and all the many others who have contributed to the quality routes I enjoy so much. Top notch work!

I'd appreciate the topo, laine. The words too, dan. Thanks, guys.

Sorry to hear about the bike too. I know how that feels.

Jebus - I emailed you my chicken scratch overtop Chim's topo. With his last few comments and your previous trips there, you should be good.

Laine where exactly is the loose rock?
Dan - I felt a piece of the right side corner of Yellow Tail begin to separate. It is down low in the wide section maybe a foot or two below the pinch point. I was stemming and liebacking it and heard/felt the rock beginning to separate. At that time I noticed a slight existing fracture on the face and thought I may have made it worse. Hopefully it's nothing.

I didn't noticed it when I led it but I followed the second time and noticed it. Thought it was Yellow Tail when we chatted.
