So John, can you get another hall pass for early march? The biggest slab thing looks good and I"m getting the bug for obscure new routing? Has our names written all over it. Got four new off road tires and two spares now

It may be possible. But that will depend on logistics with the kids. The pics from our little climb were just a test- 100yds from camp, and my buddy in street shoes. He could hardly walk due to plantar fasciitis or something. Not even a whole pitch. But now i know there is climbable rock.

Tell me about Alvin McLane.

Anyone read any of his books? In particular, I'd like a look at Silent Cordilleras, and A Bibliography of Nevada Caves. There's another one on Rock art I think I'd like to see as well.

Think I just found a link to the episodes of Wild Nevada he was on. Now to find time to watch them...

and thanks neebee. Glad to know I,ve contributed at least one good thread. Anxious to get back out to my latest discovery.

If I leave my initials and some beer money (say, maybe a tenspot?) on any pin or bolt i might determine necessary on some obscure backcountry choss pile FA, do you think that would be tacky, or just a justifiable sacrifice to the Rock Gods and the second ascent party? heh heh.

Its intended to show what else is out there, and was started more as a question of whether there really IS anything new, and obscure, and unexplored.

Apparently there is. You just have to work for it.

If it's all those things for you,
that's all that matters anyway,
so rock on J-rig!!!

Feeling the urge to go prospecting and treasure hunting. Been watching too many episodes of Gold Rush i guess. And the article on the coins found in California...

Seems to be a powerful image.

Some things may not be impossible, but they may be out of our grasp.

Ron, that place looks Wild. I've taken a look at it a couple times.

Have you been out here:

We've got some obscure stuff here in the North Bay. Enough to keep us entertained.

johnnyrig,

How was the water temperature in those tanks? Last time I was in that particular spot a couple of years ago it was more like a "warm" spring.

There were no cows this time. but my pal wouldnt get in. Smelled too much like ass he said. In retrospect, i should have dove in and had a couple beers just so he,d have to smell it all the way home.
I,d guess near 100 degrees.

I also have every intention of going back out there soon. Though with recent rains the road is likely impassable mud. Definitely heading back out to some of the places in these pictures, if I can convince the mother of my young children to give me a hall pass, and drag along friends like rick, climbski, or ron to let me lead a pitch or three.
All those places look awesome!

It looks doable, some loose, a chimney, some face climbing, and probably 50ft of fun.
