Burn, it's in the backcountry off Ebbet's Pass. A 4.25 mile approach with a 1900 foot altitude gain, luckily mostly on trail. Gots some hardware to utilize this week should be fun.

Besides eagle lake or the leap, are there other good crags or bouldering areas around Tahoe for this heat?
I'm over it. It's too hot.

Echo edge Mid dome and Flagpole are as high as you can get easily. Usually doable now.

Just about froze bringing up Adam to the top of the second photo that the Czar posted. Brain freeze from the high winds had me whining like a beotch. Looks like the forecast could cooperate for some new routing up there, super excited about scratching around on backcountry basalt!

Looks very interesting, and sounds very interesting, can you post a google map with location please. Thanks.

Chim-chim, and czar,
Looks cool!!, I have hiked and skied over most of that area have not seen that. Looks sort of like Henry Peak but more solid, but I have not been even there for years. I guess it is south of pass along the crest. I would love to go there if you you post or PM directions that would be cool. Be glad to haul in some gear for you.

Cheers
Jeff

Somethings just need to fly slightly below the radar....

If you'd like directions feel free to email me.

Thanks- I think I met Woodsfords local at Bear- he was doing a class for MAS, but I forgot his name. I would guess he would know most of you. I think he lives in Minden and has worked for MAS for the 8 years. But he looked like a kid to me.

Heh Ryan, are you going to the stuff in the Yosemite backcountry this year? Talk about under the radar worthy! We're going to the basalt Sun and monday are you in town. Tropster come on out. I'd give you the directions but I'd feel better if Ryan sends you the info. Once it's "tapped" it may make it on the map.:) Dan

Yeah Dan, I dream about the Yos backcountry! I'd love to hit up the Basalt, too. That photo of you on Shoulder Country got me all fired up. I'll be in town from August 5th - 11th. Maybe we could get a day or two in then.

In the mean time keep putting up routes! I'm psyched to get up there and try 'em.

Ryan

Tell Dave he should post up those pics again, will ya? It keeps me going when I'm stuck in places like El Centro, CA in July.

A few of my buddies were out at Woodfords this weekend and snapped a few photos. Pretty sick looking rock! Motivates me to make a visit!

Name this route!






Photos by Adam Sheer.

Anyone know who did the FA of the above route? Has it seen many ascents? My friends raved about it.

Could someone write me up a list of the best woodfords cracks in the 11c->13a range?

I saw a few up thread: Goldenshower, Center Route.

Thanks!
