Think relevant email addresses should be posted on the Access Fund site in the near future. The Re-open Summit Rock petition should be available in the lobbies of Planet Granite Belmont, Sunnyvale and San Francisco soon too.

It's also a good idea to keep in mind that the Audubon Society reads the stuff published on this forum. Talking about shooting birds is not a good way to win over their hearts and minds. Too many climbers, it seems to me, engage in anarchistic-libertarian rants and anti-authoritarian posturing without sitting down and writing a letter to the Santa Clara Board of Supervisors complaining about the Summit Rock closure. Come on gang! Sit down and write a letter of complaint to your elected representatives. They are acutely aware of the ire of potential voters. But if they don't know you're irritated by the actions of SC County Parks, they'll just assume things are hunky-dory up at Summit Rock.

But can you raise a glass or bottle? If so, you're in good shape for tonight.

Those gyms will kill ya, Sully! Daphne flailed me to within an inch of my life in one yesterday.
Here's raising a virtual glass of fizzy water to another 100+ outside day year in '12!

This weekend will be ripe. Anybody wanna go? Most of my usuals will be in the Valley, no doubt. Anybody wanna go?

I think the shady spots will even be fair game. It should be a warm and perfect day.

Hey Bluering, I want to try out my arm. If more people come and my arm blows, you'll still have someone else to belay you. Either day works.

I'm planning on heading to Castle Friday (tomorrow) morning for a bit of bouldering. I'll have a harness if you are looking for someone to hold the rope. Come say hello if you are around Parking Lot rock or CR proper and see a mid 30s guy with no pad and an old pair of Mythos.

Sully, let me talk to Stacy and see what day works out for her and John. I'll be in touch here.

I'm working tomorrow dFinnecy, but otherwise I'd be game. Me and 'A farewell to arms' got a score to settle. I tried to onsight that rig on lead (on gear), but flailed at the crux. Looks doable but boy is it a sloper-fest at the crux!!!

Sully, let's go Saturday. The Superbowl is Sunday and the guys I just talked to are football heads. The CANNOT miss it, an d I wanna see it too.

Anyway I just talked to Jeff (you met at my party) and he seems to be in for Saturday. He's going to try to contact Kenny and Clark (also at the party) to see if they wanna go.

My pregnant neighbor Wendy may also want to go. Let's do it! I'm thinking Mt Doom or the Platypus region. We'll call it on climbing day in the parking lot. Cal Ridge is always cool too.

Woot!

EDIT: Hey D, if you can make it Saturday, let me know what 'morning' means in terms of a time. I can get up there by 9am, but most of my crew is slow outta bed. But We can hook up with them later if you want an early start.

Keep me informed...

You do realize that getting on the bike and riding off into the brush would have solved the problem. Right?


No fatboy earwipe will ever chase you into the desert on foot? If he does, circle back to his car and leave him flatfooted.


The goal here is to be cool with local LEO. At one. NOT to run from them.

I want to seek ways to get them to appreciate our diligence in park maintenance, not run from them when they question us.

I have nothing to hide. I maye smoke some tobacco pipe in the park occassionally, but that is the extent of my lawlessness.

The rangers should employ our resources to identify the real troublemakers. But they aren't that smart yet...

11am tomorrow in the lot. I would meet you sooner and get some sh#t done but my buddy I have to pick up is in bad shape tonight. He'll be ready about 10ish. I will be in the lot at 11am.
