Ha! Awesome picture of R. Long's Crack. That's from back when we were working it. A few of us have it pretty wired now, but I agree it's 5.11. Still, it seems MUCH easier than Greg's Crack up the hill which is "only" 5.11+.

There was a lot of talk about paint upthread. If you are a San Diego local, and want to make a difference, please check out THIS SUPERTOPO THREAD about paint removal at Santee.

There used to be a block at the base of R Longs Crack which was trundled, late 70s. It was definitely easier then, even I could do it.

Thanks for the memory jog Eric Beck,

I know I had done it in the early 70's and it didn't seem that hard,

Now it all makes sense

Not to my knowledge. Only did it once, top-roped it with 'Tusi. It'd be less than lethal with a stack o' foam and some linebacker spotters?

Stacks of pads are for pussies. Might as well just use a TR.

Chris Lindner told me at the 2010 shindig that one of his buddies soloed Retro. Don't quote me but I think it's Ethan Pringle:


Ethan Pringle on Grainstorm, 5.12 - Mt. Woodson

HO MAN! Clean, crisp, and cold today. Spent the majority of the day at the Jaws area cruising around on some slabs. Mark did the sit start to the b1 lunge and, along with Johan, polished off I.W.D.F.Y. Then we headed to Stairway which Mark had been wanting to boulder for a while. Definitely wish the days were longer... but I guess long days means warm weather.


get one of those knuckleheads to go up top with a camera and shoot pictures looking down the problem. I'd like to see pictures looking down the thing. Seriously. That is, assuming they can do it without falling off the top and hurting themselves.
easy little feller... Prime conditions for a visit. Check out the holds in person if you can pull on.

hehehe.

Probably couldn't pull onto anything right now. Period. Work has been out of control, but things will improve by end of month.

Awesome afternoon session up on the hill today. I had a blast bouldered around with Greg (gdavis?) at the Painted Boulder, Silk Banana, and Jaws area. Then Doug showed up and we did a little recon mission down by Welcome Home. The objective was a traversing tips seam Doug had spotted from the road. What looked like 5.10+ turned out to be solid 5.11 Woodson burl. Classic! We think it may be an FA, but I wouldn't be surprised if this gem had been done BITD. Regardless, fun was had.

I think what Mark is trying to say is that, at other areas, it would be 10+. And just to be honest, Johnny pointed it out to me a couple years ago. But like Mark said...good climb.
