Snowshed wall Donner Summit in the afternoon for starters. Take off the shirt and "flash" the route that, has been totally wired. Also basically any well known sport crag or bouldering area. No shirt no service!Yep

Donner is one of my faves. You just avoid crowds and enjoy the granite. Last time at snowshed we were the only party there. Some of the locals seem pretty into their own scene. I retaliate by not giving a crap.

Not a scene, but being seen. Donner is great though I admit. Not local for me 11/2 hour to get there.

Good call, Donner can be busy on weekend days. Weekdays the tanning salons are all booked up hence the lack of crowds.

Damn Ron, you last go there in 1992??!!! LOL!!!

I think it's the Bay Area crowd on the weekends?

Top Tahoe five for me:

Donner, eagle canyon, woodfords, lovers, sugarloaf

Pretty much that order.

actually, it was 97 i believe,, with the Lidija .. She was into the scene. Went there- couldnt get on any route she was wanting as there were stooges parked on every one. Imgaine my pleasure as i sat there thinking,, we only have about five secret crags out in the desert where there would be ZERO people. Besides,, ive done the classics there. Never been one to dwell about on used rock.

Donner Summit gets slammed out like a ho. Ron, I agree virgin rock is much more fun. So pristine that protection isn't always needed,;) no preconceived notions. Just go up.

You guys have some strange notions!

I just like climbing, don't need some funky reasons to like where I'm at. Think I'll go climbing right now!

Post on, Chim! Post on, Ron!

Strange notion? Funky reasons? How do you think climbing areas get developed anyhoo. Climbs are discovered, climbed, eventually rated. Then if justified, get climbed often and become popular just look at Donner for example. Every climber should appreciate what the pioneers accomplished otherwise you would have nothing to climb duh. Bomz your obviously not well versed in fa's, otherwise you would understand and not drop terms like Strange notions(what are they) and Funky reasone(what are they) Every climb I put up was because of a strange notion and funky reason. Just enjoy and have fun.

Not what I'm talking about, Chim. You're right though, you guys are better than us posers. Enjoy the heights! I'll just be climbing like a schlep.

Yeah, Ron, I'd say calling quality rock a "ho" is funky. Or whining because -gasp!- you saw other people there. Funky monkey. Dunno, I guess I know how to adapt better there. My opinion of what's better differs guys, that it makes you rage sh#t your pants is what's funkay! Enjoy your funk!

Jebus:

Didn't those crowds we encountered on Levitation suck?!?!?!

Don't you remember????


All of the lines, the waiting, rapping through parties, hell...even running into climbers on the Oak Creek trail...


And lest you forget, the race to the base of the Eagle Wall

Woodfords is certainly a very nice local crag - in an area spoiled by good local crags (the ones jebus mentions up-thread, of which woodfords is among them), but to call the place world class? That is stretching the truth a bit, to say the least. World class destinations include the likes of Yosemite, Red Rock, Joshua Tree, and Zion. I certainly don't know anybody that would put that place among those and pass the straight face test.

Let's call it what it is, a great local training ground to be able to export those skills to other zones. Doesn't mean it isn't a great cragging area, but it is a nice climbing area with some good climbs and fewer crowds than Donnaire.

Speaking of world class destinations (and their nice color guidebooks which accompany them), how's the Woodfords guidebook coming, Dan?
