Yes
Chim chim is still working on it. He is the "steward" of woodfords. Knows every climb and move on each climb. Always amazes me with his knowledge of the area. Sasha too. ;)

I tried figuring out where the Woodfords were this year a few times on my way to Kirkwood from S Lake Tahoe. 89 to 88 right??


No luck, and the snow was too high so couldn't scout. Fail.

From Kirkwood dont turn to go to south lake. Head straight down the hill toward Gardnerville. You may see some rock on the way..
Dont do it!!!!

That looks like the top of the Steeple?
Still haven't been there. Maybe this season I'll check
it out. Tell Chim we miss him here at supertopo with
the Woodfords Weekly News.

I'm in the process of relocating to south lake and am really anxious to check out woodfords. I drove through there a few weeks ago, man there looks like a lot of climable rock there. Hoping someone can show me this incredible lieback.

Perfect Layback was FA by Bill Griffen and Siggi Vogal. Don't know the date. It really is a perfect climb.

In light of the recent R&I, I would like to point out to the world that WOODFORDS IS A FUKING PILE OF CHOSS! Don't waste your time. The Pie Shop and Snowshed are way, way better... go there instead.

does reverse psychology really work?

I climbed an easy moderate way up high near the summit last weekend, a nice 5.6, super fun, lots of other potential up there...I am heading back to try a few other things I spotted...
