Been to Mamma Cat countless times. Good boulder. Never that psyched on the other roadside boulders in that canyon.

You missed Big Bertha? Just down/up the road depending on which way you were coming for those Mama Cat trips.

It looked like there were some crimpy problems on Bertha besides the o dubs. I don't know much about the bouldering there though.

I found a cool slab problem across the river from the pullout/camping just up from the woodfords parking though. I think it hasn't been done but it's not something I'll ever do anyway. I'm sure if you're willing to haul pads all over creation you could find a lot of stuff up there.

got its name from a little grave marker that showed up on the N side that read: "here lies Mama Cat" in the latter 70s.

Safe to say that boulder has seen a host of climbers over the decades.

If everything goes according to plans I will be super busy until I leave for the month of March in Fontainebleau!!! But when I get back, I'm always psyched to clean new stone.

I'll trade a tour of your volcanic for a tour of my unrepeated problems at Luther Pass. Definitely worth a day.

Hi Kenny,
How's the climbing at Woodfords right after big snow dump like we just had? Climbing in sun OK? We plan on coming up there soon as we have a place to stay in Markleeville. Can you climb during the week?

NICE Kenny!


"Whites wall" ,, named that due to the first route put up on it by Chuck Jobst in 78, the Chimney climb,, in WHITES boots!!!! The smoke jumper model they were. Talk about "trad" !;-D

If you do,,, theres an old route we did on it called "children of the sun"
which goes up a runout slab- into a finger crack to hand crack, which is just left of the obvious roof on the right side of the crag. The first pitch ended in the crack where a obvious dike of quartz and knobbery go straight to the left.

The upper pitches were DUNG, loose and dangerous so if one were to put a nice anchor at that belay somewhere around 120' i think, that would be fine and dandy with me! Its a good one pitch climb and it could clean up, but it seldom sees any traffic up there. But no doubt theres some fine things to do otherwise up yonder.




edit: When i first met chuck, he had snagged a pair of SHOO- nards the blue aid boots and was no longer climbing in whites.. It wasnt long before i convinced him he needed to get some EBs lol!
