Dan,

I have your hardware and the battery charger for the drill at my house. Swing by and grab it from my side room if you need it.

I'm out in Oklahoma until later this week. I'd love to be home in Tahoe, especially considering it was over 100 degrees here today.

Kenny, so we went out and I decided to lead the thin right-leaning thin crack to the right of Tall people Reach Short People Climb and the right of the 5.8 and 5.9 thst share anchors. Well, after fighting to get this thing clean and unscathed I discovered a new anchor on top. Was that you?

You mean left of tall people? down in the hole? small gear to a ledge then dirty hands to the anchor? If so, happy birthday. I put those there so the line would be independent of the other two and the move to the other anchor was not very satisfying.

i definitely have to get to woodfords. looks awesome. any of you g-ville/minden/woodfords folks know if the private subdivision off foothill road (i think it was called sheridan ranch before the crash) is still private? it offers the easiest access to Jobs but looking at google maps there appears to be some good stuff just uphill (less than half mile) of their water tower.
At least if those are Jeffrey Pines and not scrub pines all around

Yes, i have been der. It was a loooong time ago. The main jobs creek canyon - on the south east facing side had a few decent buttresses. Some rock grainy some much better. All coarse grained granite. We did a .9 offwidth hands thingy up there along with another crack or two. We USED to approach from the foothill rd, and walk the creek or close to it on up.

Just over the rise of the ridge on Jobs Sister facing west above star lake is a LARGE pinnacle buttress of granite with roofs i looked at when i did the FA of the N face of JS. There are some gems but the approaches BURLY- even by "WOOF"erds standards....TICKS can be gawdawfull at times on that slope.

hey ron,

I'm interested in climbing Jobs Sister and would like to climb your route. How is the rock quality on the N face of Jobs Sister? How would you describe the nature of the route(so if i went there i could maybe find it)? I bet it's been a while since you climbed it but any info would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Bruce

Bruce,,,I would call the actual N face somewhat Mt Morrison like in nature. I did it in FEB during the onset of the biggest storm of the year lmao!

I think its far better to do it in the winter as more loose crap is glued down by the snow and ice. There is nice granite formations that are satellites of the peak and ridge but the main face- which forms the western half of the north face is a loose dangerous pile. Our route went up betwixt the obvious pile pillars. A main chute above steeper rock sections to start. Protection was difficult and non existent at the top sections - class 4 on broken frozen rubble to the summit somewhat exposed. It was a dont screw up here section. The approach was straight up from star lake which in feb is frozen over.

Summer time would be good to explore those pillars and such on the eastern side of the cirque - that faces west overlooking star lake, which is loaded with brookies..

Hey Dan if you are working at the gear shop tomorrow morning, I'll be in south lake and can swing by and grab that mug. We are backpacking in desolation this weekend. I'm gonna look for some nice problems up around Dicks lake
