Thanks for the pics, Court! It was nice climbing with you and your friends. Hope to climb with you again.

True Value is a great place to climb in winter. Sunny, close to the road; the place is often called Kenny's Crag, since Kenny developed that area. There are 23 sport routs, up to 80 feet, 5.10 - 5.12, easy access, almost like an in door climbing. Great times!

And, Mr. Big, thanks for taking the sharp end!

the granite arch in sac allows dogs inside. not mine though. according to the rules they're not allowed to do anything that real dogs do (bark, play with other dogs, poop, etc)

actually, the black dog (Syd) is one that i am watching for a friend going to chiro school in Hayward. It's a 3 year school so I would say that I half own her (Just don't let maggie hear me say that).

Anybody have an actual topo or description of Hand of God. Thing's been giving me a hard on for several years now. Chim's topo is sort of decipherable, but not really? Rap off (one/two ropes)? Walk off? Looking at doing that in the near future. How about a free preview from your upcoming guidebook, Chim? I'll give a TR of my success/failure, plug your upcoming book, we all come up smelling like roses.

Had a great time in at Wood Hood this weekend! Did Yellow Fin via the Yellow Tail start (also climbed the original start in the chimney behind the bush). Both great options to start the route, thought Yellow Tail was a bit harder and more fun. Note a piece of the corner in the wide down low on Yellow Tail is going to break off someday, might consider taking a proactive approach on it.

Yellow Tail goes up a right facing corner to the roof (left side of pic). The original start (chimney to double hand cracks) is behind the bush. Is this correct?

Jebus - we rapped HoG with a single 70 (60 would work no prob). Pretty much any approach pitch will work. The 11a pitch (p3) looks f'ing classick and very sustained. We TR'd the last pitch of HoG after we did Y.F., and it is hands down the best single pitch of finger locking goodness I've done at the fords. Get on it! (I have an annotated topo I could send ya)

Also did some fun 5.8 in the gulley left of Y.F. and it is a great warm up with just a bit of looseness in the middle and tasty hand jams at the top. Dan - what's the name on this one?

Laine, the name of the climb you ask about is Two Lips. The 5.9 flair to the left is called The Brain Bucket. After the initial flair and double Hand crack, traverse right, under the roof(some back cleaning required) Pull some roof moves (left of the chimney section of Two Lips), then up the poorly protected slab then up the final thin hand section of Two Lips 5.10d. Bomz I've had the topo cleaned up, but I din't have a file to post, my graphic Designer has the updated file. I owe him some money and I recently got my girlfriend's $3700 dollar Kona Mt. bike stolen :( A couple financial setbacks have me a bit stressed, as I'm receiving alot of pressure for the guide to be finished. That said if you can locate the first pitch I can type a detailed narrative for you. Dank
Laine where exactly is the loose rock? Also a seventy meter rope is mandatory to rap of Weak Stick the final rappel to the base, unless you sketch down to the anchor above the first pitch of HOG.
