Weather here today in Northeast San Diego County.....no rain, partly cloudy and a balmy low 70's. We are @ an hour and a half from the climb site. Cheers, Lynne

I just spoke to Cosmic and he says he will be there rain or shine at around 8:00 AM


My weather links tell me it will be good weather. My experience is that Big Rock goes fine, even if a little damp. That desert granite dries out real fast.


Looking forward to seeing you out there.

Whoops. I totally missed with the weather link (now deleted).

Having never been, thought this was one of the multiple Apple Valley areas...my bad.

Psyched on new stuff and friends, for sure.

Manana, Amigos!

A good spot is important when your belayer is distracted.

We are going to need to update all the guidebooks; Cosmic is doing First-One-Handed-Ascent on routes all over SoCal.

Floats up 5.8s with one arm in a sling and that funny knee brace he wears.

Food was fantastico! Home made salsa, fresh smoked tuna caught and smoked by Baja Andy, Cosmics chocolate, oatmeal, peanut butter power cookies, home made potato salad jon beck (I believe), a great quiche compliments of Sheri Kos, and much more.

So great getting to meet more tacos face to face. You are an incredible group of people. Peace, lynnie

What a cool, low key get-together. Enjoyed meeting some new friends, doing some mellow climbs and eating some way good food!

Phil G (think I met you at the Facelift two or so years ago.)

You mention all the years of climbing pleasure the Big Rock has given so many. Well, today Wendell told us that they are going to work on the dam upgrading it for earthquake tolerance.....seismic something :D

That's good, but the bad is they may be shutting down Big Rock for a year or two. Anyone hear about this?

Nice bunch of climbers enjoying a nice sunny day of climbing = awesome!
How the heck did Cosmic climb that right-facing slabby lieback/undercling flake thing without using his left arm?

Awesome day everyone!

Cosmic scampered up those flakes like a billy goat. I was getting pumped taking in the slack. Evidently the necessity of your left arm is overrated.
