Were are all a little jealous of Jerry. He climbs a lot, and in many different locations world wide. So when he called to go out for a day of climbing, I wanted to take advantage of the beautiful fall weather and take Jerry somewhere he had never been. Given Jerry’s love for crack climbing, Woodchuck seemed to fit the bill.

Woodchuck ledge is mostly known for two classic Jimmy Dunn routes; “Screaming Yellow Zonkers”, and “Zonked Out”. Two superb, hard, old school crack climbs. However, there are many other quality and exciting climbs to be had in the 5.8 – 5.10 range. So our day went, from one amazing climb to the next, all while in the bright sun with breathtaking views.

Jerry to round out the day takes the lead in a perfect corner.

Thank you Jerry for a great day of adventure and good old rock climbing. I look forward to climbing together soon.
