Let's See It!


Here's my long term proj:
It's ambitious I know,
Well, Ludicrous really.
(don't try this at home).

But I'm gonnah, by hook, crook, or hidden wires,
Match up my played out carcass to some pictured positions which Gill Proved and Portrayed.
And this'l be tuff, cuz 'most my strings already done been plucked!
So here goes...

Note how far up Gill is off his right arm compared to the Poseur Postur Tarbousier;
oh well, that's how it's going to be going, at best...

So, once again Taco Bro's & Sistas, let's see yer dangdest
Attempts and triumphs on whatever proud pebbles happin' to be nearby...

All photos but the last one are from the Range in NM.









The super cool meadow at the entrance to the Cul-de-sac area.


The same meadow following the wettest summer on record in NM (also facing the opposite direction).

This last one is the way classic Sunset Boulder at Independence Pass. The boulder is on the way up to Sunset and Jimmy??? Cliff, home to many fine Barber routes.

No bould'rin thread would be complete without a pic of Bob Kamps at Stoney. Too bad this is the only one I have!

One of the things I miss the most about moving away from LA is Stoney & the crew of fun (and hard!) climbers. You can visit
The Stoney Point Bouldering Website
for more fine pictures of hard boys & girls by Brooks Ayola.

Here is one in particular that I like from that site, just 'cause it captures one of the essential parts of bouldering, which is silly competition with friends. I mean, look, Craig isn't even 2 inches off the ground, and everyone's totally focused on him!

It generally starts out like this:
Me: Hey, check this out! Can you do this?
You: I can totally do that, and look, I've added another heinous move.
Her: Oh yeah? Well I can do that, add a move, and not even use that "giant" hold which is obviously "off".
Him: What are you guys doing? Oh man, I did that problem in the Jurassic Era. Footholds weren't even invented yet and I was in EB's bein' chased by dinosaurs....
