Last Sunday Locker, Woody, and I make plans to go to Perris Lake to climb on Big Rock. Locker has never been there before and wants to check it out. So we decide to go on thurs. Jan 15th.

Locker wants to go down the night before and camp, so we are there in the morning and within 10 minutes of climbing.
he drives to apple Valley wed. afternoon and we go to Picnic rock for a couple of hours to climb.

We decide to capture the ADVENTURE on camera.

Lockers Bed for the overnite adventure.
(NOTICE the PINK Sheets!!!)

After climbing, we head to my place so I can pack my gear.
(He persuaded me to go camp also)

After we get to the Perris Lake campground,
Locker goes to bed and reads the paper, and I do a little nighttime photography.

The skys were really clear, stars very bright, and very little light pollution.

In the Morning, we both wake up about the same time at 6:15
and head out for a cup of COFFEE, and then to BIG ROCK!!!

Gate is CLOSED to Bernasconi Beach.
We Head back to the main Park so we can retire to our
Separate THRONE ROOMS, and talk to OUR Minions.

After talking with our subjects, we headed back to Bernasconi Beach, where we met a State Park Ranger at the gate.
The gate is always CLOSED on the weekdays during the SLOW SEASON.
So, we gotta park at the gate and walk from there.
(doubles the distance you gotta walk)
No PROBLEM, This OUR BIG ADVENTURE, so we might as well have a BIG WALK to Big Rock.

We get to Big Rock and Lockers first stop is...


"I'm GONNA do THIS one!

Locker goofing around.

Locker LEADING The Trough.
Classic first time lead for all first time Big Rockers)

Locker at the top.

The Lake

Locker Rapping because he doesn't want to do the DECENT! :)

One Climb done, and still no Woody, Tia, or Karen.
We go back to the BOARD, to pick out another route to do,
and who do you think we RUN in to?????


After Locker gets his kiss, she has to leave,
No problem,
Woody, his Daughter Tia, and Karen show up.

Karen hops on one of the topropes we have set up,

while Tia, and Woody get ready.

Tia Leads, "The Trough"

Taking the, WIDE STANCE.

Daddy belaying and watching.



Like Daughter!

While Tia is Leading,
What APPEARS in the Sky???

I WONDER if it's a sign?

Tia watching,


Locker THINKING about the KISS he gave Paris, and BUMMED she had to leave.

What a GREAT day we had, with GOOD FRIENDS, and PERRIS/PARIS

There's more to the story: locker contemplating a solo while we all look on with doubt

Another shot of Tia leading The Trough, she did a great job on a very greasy climb, Heck it might only be 5.5 but it is slick as Hell.

Cosmic climbing, yeah Cosmic you need at least one pic of yourself today!

It just wouldn't be the same without at least another pic of Woody's, ah you know...

locker in full concentration hoping Woody isn't about to take another whipper..

You know, we are bad ass!!!! haha....

Obviously, I should have been there earlier.

We climbed The Trough first as a warm-up. I was really warmed up after, since I slipped twice. It has gotten very greasy and smoothed over in the many years since I'd been to BR.

What did Woody ever do to deserve such a cute daughter?

Lots of the vegetation is gone in the background of that one shot-- it's obviously burned since I was there last. Those boulders on the hillside used to be horrific to get to.

I was having fears of stories about celebrity look-alike hookers in one of those Joshua Tree Theme room hotels.

well, maybe that would be fun to read too, but this was nice
