Another Woodford diamond in the rough

Description 

Located about a half mile west of the Fortress, on the south side of the hwy, Cloudburst Canyon hosts some of the best, single pitch climbs in Woodfords. You can chase the shade and cool your feet in the year-round stream, within this beautiful canyon. Test your strength on the ominous and famed One of These Days (5.10), check out the Tiers for a full day of fun, fingery sending, or walk up the backside of the Tiers and get amped for High Energy Wall.

Approach times take about 10-15 minutes for the dirt parking area.

Getting There 

Look for the dirt road on the south side of hwy 88, approximately a half mile west of the fortress. See the MP map for the exact location.

The Choad 5.10+ 6b+ 21 VII+ 20 E3 5b  CA : Tahoe Vicinity : ... : 3rd Tier
It's neither stubby nor wide. The Choad is instead maybe the longest line at the tiers, as well as one of the better ones. It's almost all perfect 5.8 hands and fingers except a couple of semi-burly moves at a roof.This section is easily avoided if you don't want to crank .10+ by going left and coming back into the line at your earliest convenience. Going left here is more in character with the rest of route, but slightly less direct and awesome. When Kennedy went at this it was in full dirty-b...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
