Yeah, let's not forget True Value Crag in the shadow of Woodfords.

Big kudos to Kenny for its development pretty much single-handedly over the years.

Moose, I'll try to post a couple pics.

During Hot summer days a great swimming hole right by True Value Crag. Have been swimming there the last 30 years or so.

Gum, good choice of routes to climb. Koya the Destroya was named after this beast.

A good dog resides below ground at High Energy Wall. We enjoy alot of nice days at the fords before she decided to call it quits. My new dog has some routes named after him. The Lipstick of a Labradoodle for example. Glad you had a good time.

that's what Nick was telling us. Was good to have someone with us that knew the place. Even so, I'm still gonna chip in some holds and retro bolt I Be Jammin before I rename it I Suck at Jammin. ;)

Burn there's some syrup at the shop. Had a good day yesterday saw Laine and co. Steve and I did a nice four pitch 5.10c Yellow Fin Via the Yellow tail Doodle Dihedral variation to the first pitch. The third pitch thin hand to flake/finger crack is on of the best pitches in the area. Imho DanK

Glad we ran into ya, Dan. I feel I got a good handle on Wood Hood now. What a stellar wall! Yellow Fin is on the list for later in the week. One in my group took a nice little fall on Inside Out in the chimney section. Those are some tricky moves in there. Good stuff all around.

Question, can you rap Y.F. or walk off?

To rap, Walk right up and around to the anchor on the top of Hand of God. Rap to a anchor below the final corner pitch of H.O.G. Rap over the roof to an anchor above the slab pitch. Rap to the base of the slab then walk down the anchor (carefully) below Jammin for Jehovah Inside out etc. Then to base. We walked off down the gully to the west of the Fortress... didn't want to roll rocks down on ya. glad you'all had fun. Dan

I'd be down for either or both, although saturday is my daughter's birthday party and i'm not sure what my involvement will be during the day.



and then there's this.
http://www.aboutlaketahoe.com/climbing/woodfords.htm
it's obviously a work under construction. i will in the future be separating it at least into a summer and winter side, with further subdivisions possible. just want to ensure that everything there is accurate.
as soon as a woodfords guide is available, i'll be happy to promote it. not looking for any kickbacks, just want to get people enjoying the beauty of outside.
