Laine, must have missed that photo somehow. The shot you posted here of two lips looks really fun though. And those comments about ratings were actually more generic and not towards you at all. I consider ratings as "general" guidelines, and if someone asked me my opinion...I tend to defer to someone with more confidence.

No worries, S. I did not take offense, and as a rule never do on these forums (my virtual skin is thick).

I think my favorite pitch of 5.7 crack in CA is the handcrack corner at the top of The Yawn in Tuolumne. Steep, fun, perfect rock, and a satisfyingly long pitch. Here's someone else's photo of it

But you do have to climb 5.9 to get to it.

I've really enjoyed climbing at Woodfords and there are some great climbs up there, but some of the zealots are getting a little nuts over this place. Two lips was fun and had some really good movement on it, but there was also some stuff that made the climb less than classic (ledgey and blocky stuff in the middle, some loose rock, etc). That can be said about a lot of stuff at Woodfords, however. Best 5.7 (I'd buy 5.8 as well) at Woodfords, maybe. Best 5.7 in Cali? Not by a long shot.

Mr Dan K,,, Youve done MUCH in "the Fords". Your love of the area shows and is appreciated by EVERY SINGLE PERSON to ever walk up the semi vertical pismo beach that is "the Fords" approaches. So you get labeled a zealot,, and in my book that is OTAY.. OF COURSE the "best" anything will never be defined and or agreed upon. And that is OTAY tu...

Hey Dan - I updated the mtn project description to reflect the original rating. I thought you said it was 5.8 when you showed it too me but I stand corrected.

Hopefully gonna get over there one day this weekend.

Zealot = fanatic.

Its all good, and the work you're putting in at the 'Fords is greatly appreciated. I can certainly understand the promotion of an area you've put so much time and energy into.
