Silent as a mountain oyster, I was able to watch her a whole minute or so before she sensed something was up.

Besides eagle lake or the leap, are there other good crags or bouldering areas around Tahoe for this heat?
I'm over it. It's too hot.

chim,
Burn, it's in the backcountry off Ebbet's Pass. A 4.25 mile approach with a 1900 foot altitude gain, luckily mostly on trail.

Looks very interesting, and sounds very interesting, can you post a google map with location please. Thanks.

Chim-chim, and czar,
Looks cool!!, I have hiked and skied over most of that area have not seen that. Looks sort of like Henry Peak but more solid, but I have not been even there for years. I guess it is south of pass along the crest. I would love to go there if you you post or PM directions that would be cool. Be glad to haul in some gear for you.

Cheers
Jeff

Thanks- I think I met Woodsfords local at Bear- he was doing a class for MAS, but I forgot his name. I would guess he would know most of you. I think he lives in Minden and has worked for MAS for the 8 years. But he looked like a kid to me.

Yeah Dan, I dream about the Yos backcountry! I'd love to hit up the Basalt, too. That photo of you on Shoulder Country got me all fired up. I'll be in town from August 5th - 11th. Maybe we could get a day or two in then.

In the mean time keep putting up routes! I'm psyched to get up there and try 'em.

Tell Dave he should post up those pics again, will ya? It keeps me going when I'm stuck in places like El Centro, CA in July.

A few of my buddies were out at Woodfords this weekend and snapped a few photos. Pretty sick looking rock! Motivates me to make a visit!

Name this route!






Photos by Adam Sheer.

Anyone know who did the FA of the above route? Has it seen many ascents? My friends raved about it.

Could someone write me up a list of the best woodfords cracks in the 11c->13a range?

I saw a few up thread: Goldenshower, Center Route.

Thanks!

Fast response!

I think its 11c for the first pitch 12c for the second according to Chim-Chim's guide and my friend's experience.

Do you know where Goldenshowers is located?

Any other suggestins for good 12's to get on?

Heh, there are many routes in the grade range that you would like know about. Golden shower is located upstream from King Diamond Wall, drop into the drainage above the sandy approach to OOTD follow the left side of the creek past a recent rock fall, just before the bend left start at a slab-crack system, 5.7 decent pro, that lies below an obvious west-facing crack (not easily seen from below) overhanging hands and wider lead to a crux and anchor.
