Looks like Tyson will be replacing the crappy topos I've been doing in MS Word with actual professional grade layouts. I believe there is already a better Tiers topo in existence.

Just thinking out loud here and I might be completely off base but Chim, Tyson could be your go-to guy for graphic design of the guidebook.

Wish I could but I already committed to climbing in Tahoe that day (squaw area). If you do the line up and left of the green tongue, bring 2 stainless quick links for the anchor. I gladly pay you back for the hardware. Also if you're interested in Tahoe climbing hit me up.

Who's climbing tomorrow, Monday, anyone?

Who picked this cherry and what does she go at??? Looks pretty classic: hands, fists, and fingers which overhangs 6-8 ft over 40-50ft?!?

There were plenty of cobwebs on the crack, so I don't think she sees many ascents, but it's a very aesthetic line in a very cool position indeed.

I was just hiking solo so didn't get to give it a go, but my eyeball assessment says 5.11+ or in the neighborhood?

It's called The Golden Shower. I rated it 5.12a, but I'm short and weak. Dank

Heck ya! Thanks Dan. Definitely at the top of my Woodfords tick list now. Betcha the crux is at the top, those fingers look like they will be pretty brutal...

Can't wait.

Haha, Laine you have to push the envelope and branch out more. The high sierra calls!!!!

I think the Doodad has our name on it, lol! Maybe Dragway, too, I still haven't done it!

I know right. Tried to bag Dragtooth with a good friend a few weeks ago and woke up to a full on winter storm at the bivy spot below Matterhorn. So it was a bust. I did put up a new sport route (ground up) on some limestone in nor cal last week so I got that going for me :).

Let's talk soon, gotta get Dragtooth done!

The fords' page has been mighty quiet these days. Hope people are getting it done out there. Another wall in the cloudburst canyon is up on Mtn Proj. People new to the area should check it out. You can chase the shady all day long out there.

Went up to the Fortress today with Kdog to climb Topographic Ocean. What an adventure that rig is. Sustained hands and fingers mixed with some loose and dirty rock, wild exposure and a bit of runout, keep you on your toes for the entire 500ft. Dank rates this a 10+. We found stout 10+ fingery locks and stems on pitches 2 and 3 with a spicy runout and tenuous 11 crank guarding the top of the fourth pitch. We added quick links to the pitch 3 anchors so you should be able to rap with a 70m from there. Adding another set of anchors atop pitch 4 would allow the route to be rapped and avoid traversing to Hand of God. All in all, stellar route!

Very cool, Laine!

I was on OOTD with Mark yesterday. He led it, obviously. But I got it clean on TR. That's big to me. My goal is to lead it next year.

Laine, it looks like you fellas went right on the third pitch towards The Anchor of Yellow Fin, rather than staying on the slab that lies to the left of the arete where Kenny is shown climbing. A very thin insipient crack, on the white slab leads to the double cracks above. I don't belay at the bolts that you installed quick links, rather I continue up the double cracks, then go through a triangular roof to the right of the large arete, then up a thin hand crack that parallels the arete. When the crack runs out, I swing left to a stance and flake anchor, 180 foot pitch
