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.

Gomez,
I know of 5 plus routes near One Of These Days that you might enjoy. I did two onsights the other day. and there are three to five other climbs I know of in Cloudburst Canyon. Let's try to get out there soon!

A guide (even photo copied hand drawn would work) giving the general lay out would sell...
Otherwise, I think I'll just go walk up to some rock and climb...

What could possibly go wrong with that plan? ;-)

There are over thirty routes in Cloudburst Canyon. The climbs we were on from left to right are 5.9 corner leaving the creek, a 510d arete T.R,on the right margin of thesmall wall fifty feet to the right. The nice finger crack to the right goes at 5.10a and can be used to set up the other routes. The two other climbs that the anchor serves are a 5.10d finger crack(leadable) and the double arete to the right, goes at 5.11a or so and I'm considering bolting it... it's pretty rad. Anyway weve been going out there ridding the climbs of the winters' filth so most of the climbs up there should be in good shape. By the way did anyone find my camera up there? A Canon digi? I'm kinda bummed because I had some shots in there for the upcoming guide. I have two experts working on finishing this up. We'll be up at High Energy on saturday till mid to late afternoon. Peace Dn


Oh yeah Jerome put new chains on Atvian Grin the old one's were getting pretty rusty, the climb to the right with a single bolt finihing section is 5.11 a or so and is excitng.

up in Markleeville for the weekend. Haven't climbed in South Lake area. Woodfords sounds cool. Would love to know where mixed climbs are (crack, face?). Any info greatly appreciated.
