There were a few folks climbing on the cliff directly across the creek from One of these days. Don't know what they were on but it looked pretty fun.

Finally got on "one of these days" today. Great route, even though I missed the onsight by about 10 feet. I'll be back:)


Good go, Gomez! Did you "warm up" on it? I barely squeaked out the onsight with OOTD as a warmup and I will NOT be doing that again. I got away with something on that one. Let me know when you're headed back there, that would be some good endurance training for the bigger stuff ;).

The face climb(s) to the left of OOTD look pretty righteous as well.

Yep "warmed up" on it I was pretty warm within the first 20 or so feet though:) I messed up at the top and tried to go too high, fell off and hung and saw the right way, felt like 5.9 once I saw the line. Oh well, I'll get it next time. That thing is pumpy though for sure.

good job Gomez!!! there is a decent .10a to the right that is good to warm up on. not great, but does serve as a good warm up. You can also TR a sweet .11 off the ten as well. I'll give you a shout tomorrow and catch up with ya!!

kenny t - i believe the short corner is a 5.9 and fun. then up and next to it a bolted 5.9ish. then behind that is a 10c- ish thing called green tongue, i think, not positive on the name. then to the right down lower from that is a 5.8 route and have fun.

Gomz, saw you out there on Tuesday... nice work. Heh there's an excellent warm up up stream from where Sasha and I were climbing. There's an obvious pink swath leaving the creek where a large slide crashed into the wall many years ago. It's a 5.8 called Crazy Creek. A bit run-out but stand up climbing, and very little pulling. Also up and right along the ramp from where we were messing around are a few lower angle climbs. Its been alittle warm in the sun, we got pretty baked on wedddnesday. Did you notice the large rock scar up past ootd? Two 100 ft. route are no more... they fell off two winters ago.:o,:(

Chim-chim, thank you! I will definitely check those out. I did in fact notice the rockfall area, it looked fairly new so that makes sense. What were the routes you guys were climbing.

Thanks,
Steve

Damn you guys are killin me with woodfords talk. As Dave G knows I'm In the middle of moving and can't get my cragging on for a while. Ron I've been saying for years we need a good ole get together in the canyon. Hopefully this summer/fall we can set something up. Have fun out there and hope to be out in a couple of weeks

Ron, Dano told me about that arete behind the cabin in the early 90s and I stopped by and there were no bolts up high then. I don't know whats up with that you could steal two hangers without hardly leaving the ground. I live two minutes away pm me if you want to fix it up it looks perty cool.

Kenny.
Ron gave me some hardware to fix that route a couple years ago. If you want to go out and fix it I'm in. Unfortunately my hardware is buried in storage for two weeks. If you have some I will replace it with bolts from Ron's donation. What's your schedule like? I have Friday sat Sunday off. Friday probably is best for me but I'm flexible

Gomz. Your welcome. Those were my first routes I ever put up. Three days hanging to clear out the cracks.
