This is a living document so chime in with updates/corrections and FA parties and I'll make it so. If it gets done in time I'll pass it on to Dan for consideration in his guidebook.

First off, thanks for posting this up. Had a great time warming up at The Tiers before heading over to OOTD, and this topo definitely helped a bunch.

Couple of questions: 1. have you climbed the unknown .12 on the left end of the topo and are asking for a consensus? Or is this your best guess at the grade from remarks/eyeballing? It looks really cool from the OOTD belay ledge and was surprised to look down and see .12 for the grade...

2.Do you have any beta on that long and striking line that goes up the pink streak just left maybe 30 feet from the edge of this topo pic? That thing looks rad!

Thanks again man, for your generosity with your topo work all over woodfords.

Thanks Tyson, glad you found this helpful. All the question marked routes are a result of speculation after talking with Dan Kennedy and Kenny Thompson. Regarding the pink streak climb I think Scott Thelen was doing some work up there and might have info on that.

Maybe they can chime in with some useful beta on the specifics. I'll update the topo as needed. Hope to see you over there.

The Pink line in question didn't look as cool close up as I thought, so we didn't give it a go today...

...but we did do a corner line just left of Orange Wedge, it went at easy-ish .9 we thought? It has two large rappel bolts and no chains for anchors.

The obvious pink streak is Crazy Creek (5.8). It's a Kennedy route that climbs quite well. The gear is a bit tricky, but all there.

I climbed something to the right of "Tall people reach and short people climb". When I got to the top one of the anchor bolts had fallen out and was on the ground. I wouldn't really recommend this route, if it is actually a route, though.

Melissa, is that the route which is not shown on the topo that is in between Tall People Reach and the Unknown 5.9 corner route? If so, I believe the anchors were removed after a few people pulled rocks down on their partner. Probably best to avoid that line. Cheers.

Laine, yeah I think so. I climbed it before seeing this page and thought it was going to be a fun route. I thought I saw chains at the top until I got there and realized there was only one left. Plenty of other fun routes in this area so it's easy to avoid this spot.
