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.

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.

How far is true value crag from the road? In terms of; do i need to worry about the dogs constantly running out onto the hwy?

Across the river from the road, dogs should be okay.

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).
