james march, there's a blast from the past.

if i were still in socal id probably be a tram regular now.

hardly ever climbed there in the 80s and 90s, though. too expensive when black mt was still free. and if you had a dirt bike at black and other places on the hill, you could ride straight to the boulders and get yr beer muscles on.

i think the pads also made a big difference-- we picked some of that low-hanging fruit on the obvious boulders with good landings, but a lot of stuff at tram seemed to be over talus or gins flakes. great spot, though.

that obe problem looks really cool

There are some nice cliffs up in Tahquitz Canyon also.
A couple of Friends and I did a few FAs up in the Canyon back in the 70s and 80s.

What's buck been up to these days? Last I saw him (6 months?) he looked like thundergod Thor and was still pulling down like a CHAMP.




Powerful, Buck Branson!

Back by popular demand - perhaps?

Thanks for the shout on the other thread, and various other websites!!

I will dig up that Meathead pic - I have a good story to go with that one too.

Haven't seen Buck in a few years

A couple different angles of Lindner on that crack project - he had his hand on the lip at one point, but bailed due to a carne asada finger - he suggested that the line could be v9 - and he's no stranger to cracks!

Da Meat doing the FA of the Electric Eye v2 R

So the story goes like this -

I was out at Tram bouldering with a buddy who likes to go by the name Mullet. Now Mullet was the kind of guy that was into hard training, hard climbing, and hard spraying! On that day we found ourselves at the Boardwalk boulder and who should we run into - Meathead! Meat is one of those proud oldschoolers with a disdain for gym climbers or anything of modern design. Immediately there was friction between the two. Mullet, getting cocky cutting laps on the double digit terrain. And Meat just being himself. I think things broke down when Meathead accused Mullet of being nothing more than a gym climber. Mullet stormed off and after about 10minutes we hear all this grunting and f-bombs. We go over there and, I have no idea why, but Mullet is trying to send this unclimbed highball around the corner. He's yelling and hamming it up on the moves. After another 30 minutes or so, he declares that it will in fact go and that he's going to come back and toprope it before doing the "headpoint". Meat, now fully asleep under a rock, somehow senses his moment and he gets up, stumbles over and casually onsights the thing. Thats how the Electric Eye was born!
