No one but us (B,S,R) at OOTD buttress, today,
it was beautiful.

But I missed my cap.


EDIT

Ron, why not come on down one of these
days, check it out. We could talk taxidermy,
used to do as a kid.

Maybe you remember a place called Jepedos
in Carson City, circa 1974, chockfull of animal
hides and specimens.

Actually saw Dick a few hours later. Saw a cat with a climbing rope on his pack and got him up to Woodfords on my way to Mokelumne for some hiking. He told me about this website!

Chim- Don't know if you have any memory of this.

At the top of OOTD in the channel / chimney next to
the anchors were two heavyweight loose blocks. I grew sick
and tired of them there always creeping me out. For
a couple of reasons. But one was if they ever let loose their
drop zone after exiting the channel and after 115' freefall straight down
was the belay zone.

So yesterday, opportunity presented itself to trundle them so I did.
With the energy output of two dynamite explosions.

So check it out when you can. Next time I go up I'll clean the
channel of the remaining sand. I called it a nice improvement.

You're probably up there today. Have fun. My forearms will
be sore for days after yesterday. What a blast!

Im not sure if he its the same place of not...knew those had been chopped a couple of years ago. Would love to check out Zebra wall though. Looks very inviting

Had dealings with "tribal police" regarding Dinosaur a couple years ago.....one was very nice the other a total tool.

There were chalk marks on Zebra wall a couple of years ago other than there are no signs of climbers on that wall for many years. Looks like lots of steep lines there. Those bolts on Wolf Creek have been gone for at least 8 years or more.

Most of the stuff up 4 is just volcanic mud flows, there may be some that is solid but I am not sure. In the high country around there Henry Peak has some basalt columns I have heard rumors of them being climbed. This formation is also near the the road but when I tried it years ago everything was loose.

Looking for a workout partner for tomorrow,
anyone interested?

Where's Wolf Creek road? What's Indian Head?
I only know about Indian Rock, Southwest of Lake
Tahoe. If ever I go, sounds like I'll have to be
vigilant- careful because of angry Paiutes, still? :)

Shawn, still trying to find that no-hands
purchase above the roof on OOTD you pulled off awhile
back. Still alludes me...

You sure you didn't sneak a cam into a crack
way up there when we all weren't looking? ;)


EDIT Alright, Shawn I'll give it another go,
looking to knee jam something.

It's been warm and dry for a while now--65+degrees today at my place near Gardnerville. There is a lot of snow around, so seepy lines will probably be wet, but there have been climbers around and the rock looks great.

PM me--i have lots of free time and the skiing sucks right now...

Always love to see interest for Woodfords Canyon
at Supertopo. It's been kinda cold though lately but
it's also warming up.
