by strange coincidence I just saw Buck, he's looking light and lean and putting up problems here in San Diego. Just FYI. :)


I'd love to head out to the tram, I'm a pretty poor dude so most of the time have to keep it a bit local (driving to the tram and shelling out for a ticket is expensive). But it looks world class! Love those mountains.

RtM, Robert,
This Mullet started climbing in josh in 1976 6th grade, I love the Tram, when I was attending palm Springs High I worked 6 winters at the then ski center, now the adventure center. i have to complement you on your guide and effort, your book is the best bouldering guide ever published. I have great info that I will share with you some day, keep up the great work. now at age 48 I still enjoy climbing fun things.

Cheers,

MF

GDavis: One option to avoid the cost is to hike up. Yes, it's hard, but it's free and you'll be much stronger for it! Arrange a meeting place with friends who will take the pads up, and get a super early start while it's still dark. Mid-summer is probably a bad idea, but fall would work. This is something I'd love to do someday. I've never had my ticket checked going down the tram. They might notice, but I highly doubt it.

FYI I hiked cactus to clouds summer before last, and had to pay to ride down.

Dang, that would no doubt be the longest approach in bouldering history!

This shot may be a bit off the cuff. This is the Tram plateau. The dot on the far right is the Mountain Station. This shot was taken from my front yard, about 10 miles away

Tram wildlife! Went around the corner to take a leak and came across this little guy. He must have been just minutes old, as he was still wet and could barely stand up. In hopes that the mother was still close by, we immediately packed it up and split.

There's no (near) access from the west? I bet the 4 wheeler crowd has some paths up there.

Bump again. Any conditions reports? I may be dragged down to Palms Springs for work and would love to kill an afternoon up there. BTW, I've noticed that the Tramway has a summer pass for only $50. Two trips and you've paid for it already.
