A good way to specify cleanliness is to ask, on average when you stand in one place and look around, how long does it take to see something. The Pit is now at around 15 to 20 seconds. For desert terrain that is really good. Only when you have duff on the ground does it get longer.

Hey Jstan
REALLY ?
For desert terrain ?
The Pit is someones property that doesn't sound that good
Where, do you live? Downtown LA ?
When I walk out into my yard I could stand for hours or days without seeing trash, not seconds
Or across the street to BLM land and still no trash
Or my neighbors yard, still no trash
Must be fun to walk by The Pit
The pit still sucks

Ground-up, way to go! Insult the one guy who actually does something instead of whining like most of us (myself very much included).

I'm thinking you live in the Highlands, or maybe Landers? Way north of 62?

My girlfriend's place is off Alta Loma. Trash blowing in from all over is just a fact of life, as it is anywhere close to the JT center.


I'd tell you to get off yer high horse, but I'm afraid you might hurt yourself. Seems to be a long way down.

Eric:
My ultimate goal is to work Alta Loma 150 feet out from the road all the way to Yucca Valley. Wasn't that some fun we had on Rt. 120 in Yosemite? You got all of twenty big bags into your van. That had to have been an all-time record.

And I still remember Jingy sidehilling all day in sandals. He must have been leaving blood on the leaves.

Some of the best climbing days I ever had. Bar none.

Today I started working Alta Loma West of HillView. Grim. God how grim! Ten acres of it is on the market. If I buy it maybe I could skip it. Is hang dogging allowed?

I know Anders does not allow hang dogging. Maybe he won't see this.

Holy shyte!

Hey John!
" God how grim!"

Did you finally start talking to God? Glad to hear it!

I think I finally agree with Khanom for once. A Lot of the trash around the pit was distributed by the wind. When I was there I saw plastic swimming pools, bags, kids shirts, who knows what else go flying by when there's 50 mile an hour winds. It even blew the dumpster open and discarded about a quarter of the contents. I witnessed "happy girl"and "lame Larry" pick up a lot of it. What I can't stand is when the garbage trucks pick up peoples trash cans to dump them on top and the wind blows most of it away. Once I saw a garbage truck do this and about 1000 magazines and newspapers went blowing all down Sunset ave. so I chased him down and told him to look what he just did. He basically said F. Off.

I being from a pristine part of Northern California used to take great offense in seeing trash in the wilderness. Especially a cigar ette butt. But after living down here for 10 years I've decided not to dwell on the negative... Now I just say, O lookee another invention by man isn't it beautiful. After all won't it be a part of our fossil fuels someday?

Lame Larry? Harsh man. We call him Lucky Larry, cause he crushes it if you ever go climbing with him. Solos harder stuff then most folks climb. I know, he seems so laidback and all..

Lucky Larry take pride in the wide fist at Royal Columns, Tieton.

jstan sounds like a cool dude
Im not trying to say any thing bad about cleaning up the earth or the people that do
If someone owns this land its not open desert
I just think not seeing trash for a whole 15 seconds on someones land sounds like they are pigs
Great jstan is trying to keep the landowners trash Pit clean (Great)
Maybe the owner should not have a trash pit for homeless people
I have a 5 acre lot next to my house , it has no trash on it why is The Pit different
I moved here so I didn't have to see trash every 15 seconds
O ya
If the owner hadn't dug out the pit to hide from the neighbors there wouldn't be a place for the town Meth Heads to party where people and police cant see them
Great job of providing a place for Meth Heads
What's the point
The Pit still sucks

"Maybe the owner should not have a trash pit for homeless people giving REAL CLIMBERS A BAD NAME"...

It is TRUE that "Real climbers" don't camp there...

I even remember talking to some n00b there named Bridwell, or something like that...

Dude probably never climbed a day in his life...

Just camping there cause it's climber cool...

He obviously doesn't know who jstan is, which basically means he's not even a climber.

As to Ground-up???...

Someone like Mayville should find him walking on a dirt road, and give him a GUD neck SQUEEZING...

LOL!!!...


EDITED:

I wonder if Dave really was speeding or if someone in particular was just being a total DICK like he is being here with John???...

Studly, Naahhh. I Love Larry> <
I'd even call him Studlly Larry!
We did some fun climbing at Beacon and Smith together that were pretty Studly..
I think he's called Lucky Larry because he's still lucky to be alive?
Seems like he gets hurt a lot. I started calling him lame Larry last winter, when he hung out in Cali. but he couldn't climb because he was always broken~

That bottom pic. cracked me up!! Is that Lamma Larry ?? LOL

I don't know you either LOCKER But you sound like a real dick
Are you asking someone to hurt me ,it sounds like you are
Better watch your step
If you have a problem with me you should deal with it yourself (PUSSY) not ask others to hurt me

Maybe You, Dick ,Tucker and Mayville should all get together and Put up a Poser Rap Route
You could call it ( we wish we were real climbers not posers)
O Well I'm over it
I've wasted enough time on poser climbers
Peace

Yeah, I know who Ground-up is. Just figured it out. He is a real real climber.

GU:
I'll PM you. Tried to get ahold of you a couple months ago. Didn't succeed.
