Or if anyone has a good way to reach Dan, I'd love to pick his brain for a few moments.

He works weekends Fr.-Sun. at the S. Lake Tahoe climbing shop,
all I got.

Ya, it looks like a mission, but am no stranger to big hikes in that canyon...

...At least the shady side isn't Kitty Litter....

With an alpine start and a team of three we should be able to lug enough water beer and food to make the conditions livable.

Photo bump for a sadly quiet thread...

We ended up getting up to the Lost World that weekend in June, found some fun stuff. Not all areas we climbed are pictured, but if you wanna find out more you'll just have to hike your tired butt up there and explore for yourselves...

Ron Anderson and Chim-Chim banned.

KennyT stopped posting to ST.

Not sure why Foot-Loose and BurnRockBurn stopped posting.

I don't climb that much in Woodfords Canyon anymore, so I don't post here either.

Too bad others don't contribute more.

Why? Maybe this thread reached the right amount of contributions.

I miss the Fords fer sure. Hard to motivate now that I'm on the West Side for that drive though, too much to do that's either closer or more epic.

I'd buy a guidebook though when Dan gets done with it. Maybe that'd motivate some more sojourns to that corridor.

I'm looking forward to those cool Fall days on the north side of the canyon. There's much to be done. Anyone checked out Crystal Wall? It hosts Tumbledown House, an airy 5.11 that climbed a very unique band of rock for two pitches.

Can't comment on the Summer side graffiti, sounds pointless and stupid. but we did make our way up to the Winter side today...
The trail has been obstructed by I guess tons of forest service work, piles upon piles of manzanita and pine trees that have been completely cut out of the landscape. Not sure I understand why this was done, but the trail is pretty non existent down low anymore.

We didn't really have any objectives in mind, but wanted to end up on the hand of god formation and maybe do something on it to finish the day... We started out at Donnie G and scrambled our way through some pretty cool (mostly .9 and below) mostly virgin feeling and dirty terrain.

At the top of our wandering pitch #4, I built an anchor below an awesome but imposing corner system, that was slightly overhanging hands to fingers. It ended up being the highlight of the day and felt like it checked in at solid .10+.

By the time we got to the summit of HoG, it was raining, we tried to wait things out but conditions never really broke, so we bailed from there. cool day though!

Anyone know what this corner is? I think it is on or very near the Albatross formation?

Sweet, Tyson!

Next time I get a hall pass, I need to get some of that winter side Woodfords you've been hitting up. But, you know, we'll keep it on the down low so irate locals don't bring out the long range armaments to pick me off whilst mid-hangdog.

I doubt they would ever be able to spot us, what with all the heaps of trash and hordes of people hitting up the fords these days. Times they are a changin. It was so bad this weekend we were the only car in the canyon...
