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!

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

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!

Great shot, Karl Mueller. As it turns out, I've been training your niece for some time now. Guess pulling hard comes in the family :)

Hey guys, I need some help. Is there some long super easy slab on Woodson? Like in the 5.2-5.3 range and maybe a short pitch long? This would be perfect for helping me rehab my busted ankle; really slow methodical feet placement and movement over a long distance. I'm running 10 laps on the short slabs I know and was looking something different (and longer). I realize just getting to it would be a workout for my ankle too. It would just be part of the package along with bringing a bucket of ice in the car for when I get out.


Nice pics btw! Keep the stoke going!
