Ron you are right, there is not West Side to Ebbetts, no backcountry skiing, no climbing, no sage brush, no fishing, no kayaking white water or flat water, no aspen groves, and no mountain biking or cool dangerous curves for icecream trucks and trucks pulling boats to crash off of. :)

Man that ice cream truck made a mess it was along the approach to twenty min. crag. Kayaking the n. fork of the stan. is killer

A couple of years ago they closed the road and pulled out the trucks and boat. I kinda get the idea where 20 minute crag is now. Good road bike riding on both sides fo the pass.

Thanks Ron for the kuddos. I am a very small cog in the machine that is chim chim.
His passion and love for that canyon is remarkable. I am humbled to climb with him and Sasha as well as the others. I wish I could spend as much time up there as I used to but at this time family comes first........dammit :)

Hey Dan - have you considered also offering an eBook option? While I enjoy my printed guides, I seem to end up scanning and printing sections of the book to take to the crag. Once smart phones came out I started saving the Supertopo books to my phone and using that.

Also it might increase your sales without a significant upfront cost.

Just a thought.

Dan- yes I emailed mike. I just got my photos in .eps format tonight as requested (thanks to my graphic designer aka wife). I'll do a final review and send em off tomorrow. The photos containtge route lines, names, pro and FRA names. Should i submit any additional text like a description of the walls? I do have a photo of the approach that I'm submitting.

Hope it all goes smoothly for ya, man!

Warm temps and blue skies today, 12 mar 2013. I blazed a trail through the snow in a few sections.
Somebody ought to FA that new dihedral through the rockfall.

In these, just copy the bootkicks and avoid the half dozen postholes, hahaha! :)

The rock was amazingly warm. Snow melting everywhere. I took two rope solo runs. Shoulders are blasted.

I love Woodfords!

Hey Guys....We're heading up this weekend. What's the local weather prognosis? Looks like snow mid-week then sunny. Will it be climbable? Interested in climbing "the west wall route" on the west face of the apron. We're going to be there Sunday and Monday...
If anyone needs a partner, feel free to join in......

Thanks Ron! What about the weather there. I remember that climb being in the shade at later in the day in the summer. Is it in the sun in the winter?

Thanks Dan...There were old bolts on it last year when I looked at it. I have some bolts and rap rings. I'm not quite set up for bolt replacement yet but if someone has a kit I'd be happy to replace when climbing it.

Nice work, Kenny! I'll have to give that one a go. We just TR'd one of those 5.8s, and that - ahem - 5.9+ to the left of the West Wall.

My bud wanted to throw an anchor on the 5.11 jam crack just above. Somehow, I don't think that will fly with the FA. What say you, Ron? I know many of your rigs have the dreaded convenience anchor nowadays, but not sure what you think about that one.

Hey, good to hear the consensus for that anchor. I will tell my buddy, he was the one with the itchy drill finger. I talked him out of it until we got the say so, didn't want to cause any controversy in the canyon. But if the FAist and crew out there are on board, we will give it all systems go and get an anchor up there.

I'll let you all know when it happens, it may be a little bit because my friend is laid up with a foot injury right now. Probably be too hot up there soon anyway ;).
