Ron, I'm still oscillating between Tahoe and Carson Valley. Let me know when you and Rick want to challenge yourselves on Sunny Delight at the CV Sentinel.

Jeebs, let me know if you come down, Wed is at least looking sunny and calm. Tromping up the slope - boots or snowshoes - could be fun as a minimum, opportunity to work on my tan, ha ha, and check out the climbing conditions. Would probably take a couple hours in the sun for the tan rock to warm I'm thinking.

I could also glass the chute on the south side, see how its base is coming along. It's a fun rip!

Beautiful outside this morning in Jacks Valley! Minus 10F, woohoo!!

Any new routes go up lately? My finger is almost fully healed and I'm itching to work on some of my projects, but I need some fuel the stoke the fire. The snow inbounds sucks, backcountry hasn't filled in yet and I've got a week off from work.

Time to get busy!

We got our rope stuck at the end of the day on Sun Wall. If anyone is able to pull it offin the next few days I'll gladly trade you for a six pack.
Happy holidays!

Did you draw that picture, Ron?
If so, nice work! I marveled earlier at how clear it is,
and how accurate it appears to be especially from
that angle.

Hey, I should ask you too. As I just asked Paul.
Any chance you know the history of the anchor on OOTD?
Who put it in? How long ago? Just curious for my own greater
awareness, is all.

PS I disagree with the 10c marking at the top of OOTD
just before the traverse over to the chimney. For me that's
where it lets up. In my opinion if there's a second 10c
it's half way or so between roof and top (near the
flake pull) in the overhanging section.

Yep,, right out of my old guide that page is..I photographed from the MOST OBVIOUS angles, then traced the pics onto onion skin then onto paper.. So they were all quite accurate..;-) Not sure when the anchors were added.

Tanks man.. Ive had many comments about that accuracy of the topos. They were all drawn to avoid costs to the guide to keep it cheap and available to D bags. 23 yrs later its still the only guide going for the fords. 23 years???????? goood gourd.....Will now feel old for rest of day...

BIG NEWS!

KennyT is moving to Oregon tomorrow.

Woodfords is losing one of the best climbers.

Thank you Kenny for putting up so many excellent routes. Your contributions to developing Woodfords climbing areas won't be forgotten.

On a personal note, two years ago when I just started climbing, Kenny became my mentor and a good friend.

You will be missed here!

See you in Oregon!

No Chyt, was hoping to see him before he left.

Kenny was our eyes and ears down in MRKL. He was the very reason the rock removal deal got cancelled, by alerting us here. That is a STELLAR contribution in and of itself, not counting the many quality routes and areas he developed. Woodfords and Hgwy 4 areas are now enjoyed by the many, and Kenny was a LARGE part of that. Salute to you KENNY and you have my most sincere thanks for your efforts and friendship. Hope Oregon treats you well!!!
