V,,,there are four to seven pitch climbs there. There are still the best possibly waiting. Check out "the hand of God"...Check out "power surge"

And go there pick out a virgin splitter and DOOOEEEET! Go to the "orange wall" and "pinnacles" area. i P-R-O-M-I-S-E youll be impressed.

the other day when I first stumbled into this thread, I checked it out on Mountain Project. There, Laine hisself has two-lips rated 5.8 and 2 stars...no pics. Looks nice to me...but I'll be dammed if I will ever fully get ratings. Seem somewhat beholdent to how well the day is going. hand of god, on the other hand, looks really, really sweet.

Now the cat's out of the bag, Woodfords is going to look like Malibu on a summer Saturday.

skcreidc - I felt it was 5.8 (but I'm not solid at the grade like Dan). And I did post a pic on MP.

As for HoG, I've done p1 and p4 and you are correct, stellar stuff(assuming the roof pitch doesn't suck). Hoping to rope the infamous Mark Bauer into an ascent by spring time (wishful thinking I imagine).

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.
