I decide to try a new crag. The crag where rolfr was accosted by a dog walker about bolting development.


I glance at the map. Go up Woodgreen to some other road called Wood-something.



I wind up Woodgreen past Wood-this, Wood-that, Woody Woodpecker, Would-a-Woodchuck-chuck-that-much-Wood,


I should have taken a better look at the map.

I go into the woods, find the canyon, find a way down into the canyon.

No crag yet. I head upstream.

She doesn't look a lot like her internet picture.

I climb routes 2, 3, 4, and 5. #4 takes 2 tries and #5 takes 3. The FA has revised the grades downward. There are tricky and strenuous moves.


The crag is deeply fractured top to bottom and threatens to calve into the creek.

Inside route #3.

Three people come walking along the creek. No dogs. One walker says he thinks the bolts, "are cool."

The routes don't go to the top but at least one finish has been added.

Trying to get back to the light.

Thanks for the trip report.

I posted the topos and routes up on that other climbing site. (MP) I made a new topo for Tombstone, it looks a little more like the real thing.

Great pictures. Sometimes I miss the North Shore.

Did you ever go back and look at that cliff in Mosquito Creek canyon?

Too much dark magic up there.


I am saving my mojo for Zeke's Wall.
