Hello Fellow Rock Climbers.
My name is Neil C. Cohen (NCC).
I am a Rock Climber at Planet of the Apes Wall (Malibu Creek -
Calabasas, CA) AND Beethoven's Wall (Stoney Point - Chatsworth, CA).
Both Calabasas, CA and Chatsworth, CA are in the San Fernando Valley
(North West Corner of Los Angeles).

At Planet of the Apes Wall (Malibu Creek) and Beethoven's Wall (Stoney Point), I became aware of a climbing danger to ALL climbers!
If someone slips off the rock at the bottom of:
the Planet of the Apes Route (Planet of the Apes Wall) AND
the Prow Route (Beethoven's Wall),
any climber will swing into large boulders!
At any rate, I suggest that a anti-swing anchor bolt be placed at the
base of both the Planet of the Apes Route and the Prow Route.
Only a person with route setting bolt experience can do this.

Route setters, thank you for taking your time to help your fellow
climbers!

You can reach me by:

Your Fellow Rock Climber,

Its good for climbers to confront the dangers rather than negating them all. You fall and you can get hurt. Just because it's sport doesn't mean it's safe.

"Route Setter"? Calling an older climber a "Route Setter" is akin to in insult. "Route Setters" are found in gyms, not at climbing areas.

Yer mama wears Army boots dude.

While you are at it, route setters - could you replace all of the dirt that has been eroded away by climbers at Ape's Wall? 30 cubic yards should do.

TIA!

I would suggest we all sign our posts with our phone numbers. Think of the ramifications.

Surely if they slip off they just hit the ground, just like normal climbing.

My solution is to just avoid Malibu Creek - too much poison oak and too many people.

What - you mean a climber might swing into something and get hurt? While you're at it maybe you should contact Boxer or Feinstein so they can outlaw lead climbing too.

I think that he just wants more bolts on the routes. More bolts=shorter falls=less swinging.

I kinda want to call the phone number, just to see if it's real and who I get.

i was curious so

http://www.mountainproject.com/v/planet-of-the-apes/106239437



so are you suggesting a bolt on the face to be used as a directional for a top rope climb ???

how about a cam in one of those pockets instead?

matty i'll second that!

no directionals needed for stoney point prow set up. just use more webbing lots of webbing. i set up using one rope "W" style.

apes wall is bad enuff no directionals take the swing the tourist love it!

how about tri-cams for those pockets :)

Just looks like pretty good motivation to pull through the first half clean, to me.

Someone should invent an instantly inflatable bubble to cushion the impact of the swing. That ought to fix things good.
