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.

I was talking with some of the BITD gang the other night- and we are proud of the next generation explorers in the canyon and the jobs they have done with the routes in general. Sure theres some things like bandit crag that arent exactly the norm, but neither was epoxy wall. But reading route desrips, the pics and topos of goings on more recetnly certainly point to the continued GEMS and achievements of those that go find them.

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!

Laine, thanks for the additional info. I'm saving up for my next meeting with Mike. Hopefully things will go well... it's not an easy thing to get done as I'm realizing, but it's fun. Dan

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......
