Now, if he wasn't such a ill advised unrepentant poilitico.....

Other than that, Woodster is A-OK.

Here's Woody after his successful ascent of Hair Raiser butress, this after some idiot had chopped the bolts and the climb was now rated back to the old X rating. Didn't faze Woody however, he hopped up there and pulled the moves, yeah, nothing scares this guy!

Woody can still do 30 or more pull-ups......with no effort at all......he puts the fluff boys, gym rats and plastic pullers to shame.....

Say Karen, nice picture ! Now if I evah run into you I will recognize. Do you also climb at the J. Tree ?

Maybe Woody would give his fan club a "How is the Leg Doing" update...... : ))

He has that rugged handsome look that only comes with years, experience, and maturity;.....and is oft compared to Clint Eastwood, Sean Connery, Mel Gibson, and the New Kids on the Block guy named Donny.........

Caption for the gym shot, "Put down the camera and walk away, fluffy, before I kick yerass!".

Woody is an inspiration. 41+ years after putting up classics like The Flake, Dogleg and Double Cross he is still cranking (and pulling off scary leads).

I also enjoy climbing with Woody.
He gives me hope and inspiration
that I will still be climbing hard in 10 years when I reach 65!!!
