Beggin' your pardon, Sir Mike, but the "true" Rug Head finishes up the lieback flake just right of the Tree Route. You pitch from there, you really pitch.

strange as it may seem….. that's not how that problem goes..

It's certainly easier that way… but that's not the problem at all…


Luckily, climbing provides for rules not man made so you're golden. As long as you're climbing, that's all that matters.

Thanks for taking me along for this early morning pre-parade-o-f*#kness, with the photos

I love The Spoon!!

Two of my favorite problems EVER are "The Slap" and "The Slope", both on the same boulder. Anyone have pictures of those gems?

I don't say this often, but you're an idiot, Jingy.

 Well, I don't say this often, but I agree with COZ. I am an idiot.

Pay no attention to anything I say, but please keep climbing and taking photos and posting them here so I can see them… It is literally the only contact I have with climbing theses days.

Cheers all


(possible inside joke I think COZ may have took literally… while a dude is pulling onto a problem just yell out "that hold is off…. but for you it's ok" or "uhm, yeah, that's not really the problem, but for you…."…

Like I said, the rules are provided by the nature of the stone and one's own imagination. So really, what some jackass says on an online forum means total shite when it comes down to it.)


Post Second Review Edit: Is that by any change an old Santa Clara PG staff shirt? Maybe Sunnyvale PG?

Not a huge fan of eliminates. Castle does have a few...

I am a fan of SLOPERS, and there's no shortage out there!!!

Hate to point out the striking likeness, Mike A.: But back in your younger years you certainly looked like a dead ringer for George W. Bush, don't you agree?

I don't think anyone has done the "true, bona fide" Rug Head route since the FA back in the Dark Ages, mostly because it's too dang scary. Now, it's safely slipped into oblivion; that is, until dementia invades and takes over the hippo-campus and the brain goes dark forever.

Long before then, the South Skyline Property Owners Association and their Nature Nazi allies on the Portola Valley and Castle Rock Foundation may have eradicated climbing as a legitimate activity at Castle Rock anyway.

Interesting how Julie Grote, the president of the SSA, is also the president of the Portola Valley and Castle Rock Foundation. Money and property always speak first.

So there are plenty of good reasons to document named boulder routes up there.

Yes, it's a PG "Bloc Party" shirt from 2010, which was held at the Sunnyvale location!

Yes, Herr Sprock, the tree next to the Tree problem fell down long ago, sometime in the middle 90s.

I'm especially happy to see pics of the easier boulder problems that I've actually done and can relate to (V3 was pushing it for me). Thanks for triggering memories. Do you have any pics of Waimea?
