American Alpine Club, Access Fund, Friends of Inyo and Inyo National Forest bring you, once again, a Fall Highball.
Work party at Buttermilk Country on Saturday, 19 Nov. 9:00 AM to noon.
We'll start at the parking lot East of the Peabodys. We'll have coffee and treats for the volunteers.
Plenty of time after working for playing.

Saturday evening: PARTY
At Mill Creek Station. 7:00 PM

John Long will give a slide show and talk.

$5 donation for admission including beer and refreshments.
Additional contributions will be gratefully accepted.
There will be a raffle.
18 and over only please. ID will be checked for beer.

Live music by the Core Shots

Designated Drivers are encouraged

all proceeds go to the AAC Buttermilk conservation fund.
Inyo National Forest is planning a proper toilet at the Buttermilks. This summer they published a project scoping proposal. AAC, Access Fund and FOI all responded positively to the proposal.

Come on out, work hard, climb hard and party to give back to Buttermilk Country.
Additional thanks to John Long, Manor Market, Black Sheep coffee, Great Basin Bakery and Mill Creek Station.

The Pit should be open for camping.
I'll post here again if I have more or corrected information.

HELP: you too can help. If you're able to distribute posters at climbing shops/gyms etc in your area contact me and I'll get you started.

hey Fred, the poster looks great, but could you maybe change the name to

Autumn Highball?

Somehow the words "Fall" and "Highball" next to each other don't seem right....

:-P

Completely agree, but it may be necessary for licencing, legal or insurance purposes to say no one under 18, or at least see that the advertising says it.

Plus the people who host the mill creek events don't like kids climbing on rocks...go figure....

We were asked to take our three children and leave last year because they were sitting on a rock watching the music. The owners were pretty lame people after they got baked or wined up or something.
I hope we can find a better place to host the event next year.


See you all at the boulders. Sierra Salve would like to donate some prizes or help out in some way.

It was 52 degrees and calm at Buttermilks main parking at 6:30 pm; some folks were still bouldering by headlamp. Sweet!

Things are shaping up for a great weekend.

Thanks to the Access Fund, the Friends of the Inyo, Sierra and Southwest Sections of the American Alpine Club for putting this together.

Thanks particularly to Fred, Sarah, and Andrew!

There'll be a raffle at the party.
Someone will take home the Metolious bouldering pad donated by Pacific Edge climbing gym in Santa Cruz.

PLEASE stay away...

I do not like seeing 20-50 cars in the place I moved to from Berkeley 30 years ago...to have all to myself.

All those parking areas - did you know they did not used to be there? Rocks to define use trails...there were no use trails.

Toilets? How about a Westin?

Stay away...go somewhere else. Heavily overused area...I'll be talking with the Forest Service about the problem soon.

You know, my daughter and I always used to think someone should renovate those old power plants in the Gorge into like a B&B...maybe to have a rave.

Hey! How about City of Rocks? The 'Milks suck...nothing but choss.

Climbing is dangerous - better to stay home. Go away; go somewhere else.

I think ye olde Black Powder Club has their annual Turkey Shoot out there the same weekend.

PS: Using a pad is the same as using a rope in the 'Milks. I do not own a pad, nor do any of my local partners. So, respect local ethics, and leave your aid in your Toyota PU. Or your yuppymobile Audi.

Here's my challenge to all.

I've found Dale's 25 foot wall of crystals, after 18 years. My own solution: The Crystal Method. I think it might be .10d or so...B1 in other words, since I don't buy into the Vermin Grading System, bunch of BS.

Find it, climb it, post a picture.

Then, maybe, we'll welcome you into our Buttermilks.
