I've been looking at that photo and I can't rember.

I did two routes one 5.10 and another 5.11 all cleaned and bolted. Starting from the top of pitch one of Ron's route.

Like I said I'm not sure.

My friend Jaimie found a wall a few years ago, and kept it in the "vault" until about a week ago when we snowshoed our way up to the best new find in the Woodfords area in quite a while. !00 feet or so to the top, and the right side overhangs nine feet in ninety.
Spill the beans.


Ron, glad u still got it.

Laine.
Scouted that area with the one bolt back in 08-9 and I Havnt found any info on it either. There is I direct line through the roof as you probably saw that would be hard as sh#t
Been trying to get chim chim up there to scope it with me for a few years. Hint hint chim!!!!
There are several possible routes up there but would more that likely need to be sport. Not a lot of crack there
Ron and all...... Great history

Chim let's get out.....things are starting to settle in on the home front now.

How come you get to climb all the time?

Now I am multitasking, both bored and jealous. Damn!

Unfortunately Film is a thing of the past,
Kodak and others no longer make film, gone the way of records,8-track and cassette tapes. Ah the good ole days!

Shawn - I would have to agree. There are a few nice single pitchers we saw. Here are my notes from when we went up there.

Route potential exists, but given a bolt was found on an obscure line,...
Route potential exists, but given a bolt was found on an obscure line, the likelihood of prior ascents of the prominent cracks is high.

That trip we TR'd a steep sport climb at the top of that gulley, once it's cleaned up, prolly goes at a hard 11. A crimp chimp would love it. But with all the cracks around I don't see a pressing need to bolt it (doubt it would see many ascents). That might change if the wall gets more routes on it.

A stiff TR climb at the top of the gulley.  Needs some TLC

A few of my friends said they went back there a week later and climbed the wall to the top thru a scary roof section, though I don't know exactly where. (Gil if you are out there, feel free to chime in)

I'd like to head back up there this Saturday but I really wanna tick off Jamin for Jehovah and Up the Nuthin.

That circled area is it. Crack right through the middle that looked great, but hard. Glad to see you guys are up there getting on those routes. I didnt quit understand the bolt there as I thought there was a crack that could have been used. Maybe flared out? Each one of those "gulleys" up there have a lot of potential for new routes. Im hoping to start getting back up there with everyone soon. Have bolts and anchors and will travel......
