There was a pair of nesting Ravens there last season. We'll steer clear of that area until nesting season is over. Thanks for the pic!

"Splitters over there" are you immune to Poison Oak?

These are the threads that I cruise the 'taco stand for. Pure climbing content and tons of stoke. Love it.

Nice Skreidc! If the ankle is good enough to trudge around Woodson, you must be on the mend. Lets get out there sometime again!

Ha! Working on it... I did stick my feet into Elsa's Crack for a couple laps.

Matteo, NICE leading the other weekend. Especially the second pitch! Hat's off!

So much for locals only, impressive as usual Mr. Clark.

You sure that thing is only 5.9?

I've suspected that finger crack was not quite 10a, I could get up it too easily. But my rating skills suck. Either way it's really fun!!

Nice shots

SK, it's hard to say. That thing seems noticeably harder than the two finger cracks over at grand central, but maybe it's just me. I think it's tips for me longer than some, so maybe it just seems harder

I'm 6'4' with long arms so it could be a height/and or finger size dependent thing. I know those 2 GCS cracks. But that one in the "dihedral" is bomber size for me tho, and hence easier than the other. It's so good that if I'm not careful my fingers can get stuck.

We had a great day down there last weekend. Did my best to sandbag Jon, got sandbagged myself by Terry, and this guy was floating everything in sight. Thin fingers, no problem.
Jon is belaying and studiously copping beta for the solo. Heh. Good times.

Killer photos ^^ is that Patty leading Out of Sight? SWEET!!

I'm not sure I can match his beta for power laybacking the start.

With Henry's tiny fingers, it probably climbs more like Laverne- burly!

speaking of burly, finally figured out where that grub crack is, saw some other videos online. Looks rough!

oops i hit post too quickly. if you're coming up the hill from the road to the tombstone, cut down the hill towards the two big leaning boulders. grub crack is right there, and there is a nice finger crack over towards the right of the picture

Woah Orion! Just realized you got it without the left arm-bar finish. Burly!
