Do you want multi-pitch or are single pitch with gear placement areas okay?

River Rock - has some shorter gear protected routes. A little of everything at a small crag.

You can climb Woodfords in winter? I keep hearing about the place, but haven't made it up there yet. If it can be climbed in winter, I'll have to check it out.

I think so. I climbed there last Sunday in 46 degree weather and it was pretty comfortable.

If you ever want to meet there someday, I would be open to it.

Bump. I'll be passing Woodfords on 2/11. Is it climbable right now?

Sugarloaf is 45 minutes away; Cosumes (sp?) is 1.5 hours away. Climbed at both in December ad Jauary.

I'm going to the gym today and I'll be cross taping/buddy taping. I'll be sticking to super super easy stuff so it's mostly just to see how my pulley is feeling after a month off. I've been banging out my finger bend reps, etc and it is feeling... better. Not 100%, but certainly better.

What kind of stuff were you doing down there anyhow? I might be able to be persuaded to do some super super moderate trad ;)

Woodfords has no moderate trad...for the most part.

(A 5.12 trad climber might disagree, but take that for what it's worth.)

ha, either way. I'm not going to be doing anything harder than a 5.8 with my broken pulley!

I am getting pretty itchy though.... oh well.
