Thanks for the spot and beta mark, you made me look like a little baby haha was very very motivating to see you huck yourself at all those bad ass routes. I'll be out there friday AM weather permitting, still have to finish drivin' south! :) Good to hear you guys found a gem out there, couldn't have asked for better conditions.

Here's a dorky video I made last year... kinda fun. Was originally gonna be a gear review but had too much fun bouldering, lol. Didn't really go into the gear too much... but the routes were good!

Always good to see Woodson footage...what's that last problem?

I love those two face problems in that Baby Robbins "corridor", I once climbed a line directly to the right of that fist crack (on the far left), I wonder what others have thought about that one...

Mark, Doug, and I (Lauren) ventured into the Riverside area this morning to pick up a camper shell in Pomona. In between picking that up and getting over to the five ten outlet we decided to check out this place I have heard thrown around a few times....Rubidoux!

We only had a couple hours and I have to say, that was plenty for me.....just kidding! It was a beautiful day and I think all of us would be excited to get back up there with someone who knows the hill. We more or less wandered up the road while Mark tried to match up climbs to Mountain Project descriptions on a phone. In our limited time we got in a few climbs, bagged the summit, and enjoyed the surprisingly green scenery.

Here are some pictures from the day

But, enough with Rubidoux, a crew of us will be out at Woodson tomorrow, and it is already shaping up to be another excellent day on the hill.

As Lauren already mentioned, it would be nice to go back with someone familiar with the area. We knew from the brick structures and white cross that we were in the right place, but we just couldn't find anything harder than v2. I'm sure The Chicken will point us in the right direction. If any of you other sandbaggers want in, it could be fun...

V2 is mid .11. What did you actually top out?

AWESOME on the hill today. V2 is like maybe 5.11b, or 10a at Woodson.

So you didn't even do (oops, try) Middle of the Road Madness? There you were at the lower lot and you didn't even move left a few feet?

Where are the pictures of the Octopus, Flabob, Coathanger, The Ex, A Major Concept, Muzzleloader, In My Time of Dimes, Saran Wrap, Mother Fuc$er, Bullethead, Highbrow, Co-pilot, Frostbite, Pinkbug, Snowblind, Mantlelectomy, or In the Picture?

Not to mention the Wild West area with The Popgun, Psychoanalysis, Hair Trigger, White Bowser, Bullseye, 10b On the Outside, The Long Rider, Way Beyond the Past, etc...

I don't even see any pictures of giveaways like Teflon, Autopilot, Funky Later, or Hardy Boys.

Are you sure you went to Rubidoux? If indeed the mountain was found it sounds more like the time was spent wandering around in denial.

OK, work is starting to ease up. As soon as I can get some callous back we'll see about a little trip.

The mountain is nice when it's green. Were the poppies out down in the Wild West?

Let's not undersell the Hardy Boys. Worthy Woodson warm-up! Hey, I've done 5 of the problems on Henny's list! Practically a local! w00t w00t

Like Doug said, we were looking for the hard stuff, but it all just looked too easy to even bother; nothing harder than V2 by the looks of it. Finally, we just threw our pads down, scrambled around for a few minutes, then called it a day. Rock quality was pretty decent though, I guess.

Oh, and that flay-bob thing, or whatever you call it, just looked like steep hiking.

Ah, bvb, can't slip anything by you can I? Hardy Boys is the single decent crack at rubber dick. Without a cheat stone pretty good. My guess is they avoided it because it would never do for Woodsonites to get shut down on a crack at the duck, of all places. Truth be known though, Hardy Boys is kind of a wanna be Woodson gig, albeit worthy.

What 5? Pink Bug, Hardy Boys, and ?, ?, ?

Stumbled across this, couldn't resist posting it. Face climbing just doesn't get much better than this. One of the top 5 (maybe 3?) pitches at Suicide (imo.) Killer rock quality.

Sorry for the brief thread drift. Back to the regularly scheduled Woodson pictures and stories. Please post up. Work has made me stir crazy, I need the stoke.
