Jean B in the campground.





Jean and Rob were about the only women I ever saw bouldering at Black back then. I guess Mari. I presume Lynn and Mariah spent some time, as well. Early 1980s was probalby the low point, or one of the low point, for women's participation in bouldering and rock climbing in SoCal.

Once we'd dialed most of the stuff we'd found from Largo's "Pumping Granite," we started getting away from the campground and the corral.





Bonus old-skool points if you can identify the brand/model of shoes in this shot.

Was chattin up the ranger who patrols/ administers Boulder Basin campground yesterday.

Asked him, “are climbers more of a problem, or more of the solution?”. I guess it comes as no surprise he said “more of a problem”.

It seems that the boulderers have a tendency to park their rigs in the campsite w/o paying, which prevents people who want to camp from getting a site. Bad ju-ju, pad people. Get a clue and park in day use parking (even if it means you gotta hike in a ways…).

Nice pics of Jean. That's the opposite side of the Transmaniacon boulder, I believe.

Curt, we met at Boulder Basin, didn't we? 1982? I don't have any pix of you from Idyllwild, though, and few enough pix of anything at all up there.

I have some more Black Mt. shots from the early '80s left to scan.

And yeah, Transmaniacon is on the opposite side of that 5.11 Jean is climbing.

Hey Kerwin,

1982 sounds about right. I think I crimped my way past some burly mantle problem you were particularly fond of.
