Awesome shot. I think this year my two oldest kids will be ready to tag along and discover the place for themselves.

Damn! Looks like me right in the middle and Dick Cilley just to the right. The chick down and left might be The Creature and bottom left corner might be Banny Root? Is that Loomis down there too?

The lower right hand corner looks like a couple of kids we called the Bowling Ball Twins. Just left of them looks like the Rubidoulux aka Chris Hartfield or maybe Dave Tapes.

Rubidoux, the one place besides Yosemite where you can climb "Half Dome" and at 5.8, no less. How about them apples?

Great video of John reflecting on the spiritual aspects of the place, and giving a tour to some some pro boulderers. Some nice sequences of Teflon and Autopilot.

Beautiful, nice job. Thanks Rick.
Some great early photos of Phil Haney (what ever happened to that dude?).
My fingertips were hurting by the end of the session.

BITD, before freeways through Riverside, we used to drive through town to get out to Tahquitz, and the Robidoux hillside looked mighty interesting. I thought it would be a cool place to live with all those boulders, but never imagined it would come to be famous with Largo, et. al. They were lucky ducks to have lived near there!

Edit: 1958-1960

BBA, you mind telling me what year you are talking about?

I don't ever remember Riverside without freeways!

I remember a few things about Rubberdux.

Running into a really hot friend of C. Cole. Never saw her again. Her mom pretty much read me the riot act. Nothing happened; she was too sweet.

The other was sitting at the top of the hill during the riots after the Rodney King verdict. Scary stuff. In those daze there was not as much development as today. The fires in LA were quite clear. I had to stop for gas on the way home. The gas station was interesting to say the least. I was not sure if I would get out of there alive.

Missed this the first time around. I starting going to Rubidoux in 1968 and was there a lot for several years, mainly with Doug Tilleskjor. We spent a lot of time there and did a lot of stuff. I really like working on what later became called Smooth Sole Wall. Lots of fun stuff there and all over the hill.

For sure Phil. I remember spending a fair amount of time there with you, Paul, Phil, Ketih, Jim Barker, Bernie McIlvoy, and others. I spent some time with Jim Hoagland, Ben B, Robs Muir, Largo - but they probably don't remember Doug or I. We were there a lot but generally were off by ourselves.
