Pretty sure that is at Rexrodes. I don't remember the name but I am sure Mark, Greg, or Doug will. Although now that they are done with finals they probably won't be on supertopo as much...

Is that the slab behind the little water tank by the yellow house?

It is low on the hill, but it's not that face, Johnny.

My brain is frazzled on that photo, prolly cause I just THINK it looks familiar. Is that the correct orientation? I give up.

That Rexrodes problem is sweet.

Anyone recognize this one? Dead vertical, 30 splitter. Where is it?

Edit: Doug's hint applies here too, hahahha

Man, Woodson produces some world class splitters! (35) years and never seen this one either.


Edit: I've been told that the plaid, button-up, pressed cotton shirts are the new "in" thing these days, since Honnold's solo ascent of Half Dome. Looks more comfortable than lycra, I'll have to admit!

bvb - your fashion atrocities are the stuff of legend, man.

Rexrodes is small but worth a visit. The 5 minute approach is nice too.

I believe you meant to say they are the stuff of american legend.

Is the slab on the left "Slap and Tickle?"

I think what's throwing me is your statement, " The classic sandbag pictured...", for I'm out of anymore classics ideas.

When Amick took me to that thing he told me it was 5.10, so I immediately assumed it was 5.11+. What do they call it these days?

I don't think I've seen that crack before... looks amazing, no doubt!

Slap and tickle (a brilliant problem by the way), is kind of hard to rate. I've only attempted/sent it once.

In early May, Greg and I put in approximately a combined 20 to 30 attempts by headlamp. Suddenly, one of us sent it. Immediately after, the other topped it out, too. It was such a surreal phenomenon as there was at most a 2 minute interval of good conditions. As with those sends go, the movement was natural and the climbing followed a path of weakness. Following the sends, we were so psyched and moved shop to the "unidentified neighbor." However, the 2 minute interval had fleeted and we were left to bash our knees for another hour or so. Greg being the beast he is, repeated an earlier ascent of his. I, however, could use to practice more yoga.

Friend, i dont know for sure, but that looks like its is over on the north side, and might I say, surrounded by poison oak.

Just waiting for Ron to chime in, but bvb, any recollection on the name of that route to the right of slap and tickle. should be KP's Demise, but if you or anyone else has heard otherwise let us know.
