I'm in trouble now. In the last 10 years, I've only been to joshua tree Nat. Park, Walmart, Desert Christ Park in Yucca Valley and the Dollar Store. Before that, I did some traveling. Once the stork brought the kids......I was toast for the traveling.....
I have NOT climbed at Palisade Head, but I have climb at Shovel Point just down the road, Taylor Falls, and Ely Mountain in Duluth.
Haven't climbed at the Spiders Web either;...I hang my head in shame....(I think I'll go eat a donut now;...that is all I deserve...)....
I need to get busy and get off my lazy ass.......
(I do have a trip to Echo planned next month!....Ha!.....)......
I have climbed back east from Alabama/Georgia up to Maine;....but I'm sure I missed a couple hundred places....(oops...).....

Hey, I've climbed at Carderrock, and I'm not from that area. I suppose that the one afternoon I spent there was in the middle of the summer would prove that I'm not from that area. . . slickest (as in most slippery) day of climbing I've ever had that wasn't on ice.

Here's one for ya Todd that is not very obscure: Mickey Mouse Wall. Captain Beyond may be the best 5.10 multi pitch route in the Boulder area.

Dr. F is correct;...I lived in Riverkern for a year, teaching 6th grade at Lake Isabella School.....so I climbed at Kernville Slab (Big Rock of the Sierras), New Directions, Book Rock...but never went to Rincon, VAhalla, or Bald Eagle. It was 1983/84 school year. I drove to joshua Tree alot that year too.......needed to get out of hill-billy Kernville and visit my homies....( I would jog from my house to Kern Slab, where I keep shoes and a chalk bag hidden at the base;....and I would solo most of the climbs (which I had wired...)...probably not a smart thing to do looking back on those days now......

The chigger death-march approach alone should be enough reason to scratch that one from your bucket list...but you shouldn't ;)
