In that vein, "The Rind" would work. Kinda fits the quality too? Ah, that was mean.

Lawdy lawd though, you know I had fun on those upper tier climbs and that 5.9 by Ativan was pretty good at the grade, I thought!

Dr. Sleep needs some sprucing up.

My buddy thought Aug was one of the classics.

I liked the bullet granite of Into the Groove.

Something about a lot of the climbing at Woodfords, and those tier climbs in particular... often flared cracks, varied, WAY steeper than they appear from the ground, and thoughtful climbing. The climbing really doesn't compare to anything else I can think of in Tahoe.

I agree. That 5.9 is a bit of a dirty birdy but the pro is bomber. I also agree the Tiers are great. Eric and myself got in some 8 pitches by noon. Though we are super-pro...

Hey Chim, I'd like to check out the Steeple this weekend. Might you have a hand-drawn laying around somewhere?

8? By noon? Gulp. That's eating up the terrain!

I'm still smitten with Numb Bunion, that line is just classic. It's like a contest to balance the angle against how thin the crack is and keeping the whole thing somewhat moderate.

YOWZA! Glad the flake is gone, and holy schnikey's what a scary fall!

I think it's right up there with anything I've done at Woodfords, so well done on you for the cleaning and re-pioneering of the route (if you weren't the FA). As it is now, it's some of the most bullet rock there.

My first experience on it was in some conditions too! Very exciting! I think I was too scared to whip though.

Thin crack just to the right and under Into the Groove? That's thin indeed!

Sounds good, Chim.

Yep, Numb Bunion is a delicate flower for sure. I used a few offset wires to pro up the upper section and got sporty with it. Of course Kenny was watching and Moosedrool was belaying (I don't trust that guy ;) so there was no way I was gonna fall. A lovely blend of pride and fear found me to the top.

Oh yeah, Dark Half is Kenny's route, right? Pretty excellent sport climbing.

Yo Dan - Tyson and I spent the day setting the anchors and scrubbing the upper pitch of the Choad. Got the send of the roof. The rig's a freaking classic from bottom to top!

Thanks guys. It was an accomplished day. Kenny, good to see you posting up. I can't wait till I can crank Needful Things out. The moves between the first two bolts looks desperate. Give her a go, Jebus.

If I ever get back to norcal for climbing again Woodford is on the list. The place looks very worthy.

Hey I didn't even notice my glasses were missing, thanks so much for posting! I bet they were right at the base of OOTD... couldn't tell ya the brand, like two initials on the side, but they are all metal with thin orange chums on them. Let me know where I can deliver a six pack to get them back!
