Hah, T?S, you could make a killing at the woodfest with your hat!

Good day at The Tiers yesterday, got to flesh it out from my one hit wonder visit of Long Arm of the Aug last time.

Numb Bunion was the winner of the 8 we sampled. Sustained, laser thin, and so clean. As the blustering wind blew mist on me and a helicopter (full of government agents, no doubt) wheeled around nearby, I grit my teeth and pulled the crux, rocking over a high foot and trying not to think of the small, lone wire five feet below me. It felt like I had been transported to some remote alpine face for a second, and the elation of pulling the desperate move led to some "post fight" Elvis legging and celebratory whoops. Of course, my partner quietly and quickly dispatched the same moves on the follow. Not so much as a courtesy hang.

Woulda got more climbs in but it was starting to get nasty, and I am a tired dad anyway.

Cheers for Woodfords!

Oh boy, W.L.! Somebody needs a hug in that last shot....


I keep looking at these Woodfords threads and it all looks pretty fun and challenging, (and good in the early season?) but it's probably not to be this year for me. :(

Enjoying some rope solo laps on hillside strangler today, when good old Sierra weather decided to show up. Happened within 10 minutes. Gotta love how quickly it can show up. And how quickly it can disappear. These pics of the fortress were taken within 20 minutes of each other.

It ended up coming back, wetter and stronger, so I had to bail. Saw a party near the perfect lieback area get trapped in it too! Good times.

Dan - I haven't been routing lately, went to Yose for a bigwall a few weekends ago and worked on house BS all last weekend but I want to hit the fords this Saturday.

Anyone up for a day at Crystal Wall Saturday? Gonna be a sunny and warm but the wall provides nice shade in the afternoon. Do some laps on the existing stuff and maybe put up a new route. Lemme know. -L

BTW - T?S, love the 'after hail' photo with the tree. Really captures the essence of the area.

Friend of mine just got back to San Diego and said he's been climbing at Woodfords last month or so. He verified the old school ratings for me lol! I had guessed as much, but it's nice to know for sure.

Laine, me too. Building a house this spring, fun! so not too much time for climbing, sad! But getting away this weekend to the Sawtooths and Matterhorn - weather forecast looks good!

I'll go by and put your draw w biners under the caire at OOTD very early Sat morn. How's that?

Have a good weekend!

...and save some for me. :)



Edit - Okay, Laine, got it.

Happy climbing!!

Don't worry about it, Bill. I'll grab it from you next time we climb together (just in case I can't find it). Have fun on the MAtterhorn. Super enduro approach with steep 5.6 climbing. Don't forget your axe.

If you like it we should go back this summer and do the Dragway!

So, Laine, what's that "5.12?" two pitch line in your topo on the prodge, across the chimney from The Dark Half? Any good? 5.12 what? Gear? Anybody? Anybody? Bueller?

Not sure the details of that one. I think it's Dans route though. Has a great looking splitter on it but I think the roof at the top is stout.

Heh Gents, the route in question is The Choad. The first pitch is a short 5.8 corner to bolts. The second pitch climbs the left side of a detatched block (a shallow #1 camelot down and left of the block protects the block but it's pretty runout a bolt higher could be nice) which leads to a hand crack splitter leading to left edge of a large roof. I resorted to aid at the roof(gear plugs up the finger jams) There are no feet for the hard moves over the roof (the feet just dangle). A bolt hear may be necessary for the climb to go free at 5.12. The left facing corner above is straightforward climbing past "The Choad". A bit higher is a tree anchor which needs renovation or a couple of bolts 115' to the ground. Have fun. DAnk

I started a new thread but deleted... does anyone know anything about the new set of chains down and right of the anchor on Cloudwalker? Is there a new climb. Or does it just serve as an alternative anchor for Cloudwalker. It would nice to know the story. Dank
