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

Alan and Ian, who are doing a new guidebook for Black, met with the contact guy for the FS District. (Same guy involved with the trail project over at Tahquitz.) SOunds promising:

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.

Does anyone know if the road to Black Mt is open?

I saw a blog post where it appeared people were climbing there last weekend in t-shirts....thinking about rolling up there this weekend but the ranger station isn't answering the phone, apparently they are closed Thursdays, and I would hate to drive all the way up there for the road to be closed.

Anyone know?

The road was open in 2015. Pretty knarly. Ain't the place it used to be.

Nice. I eyeballed KLK's sequence just upthread many times before I finally solved this riddle. The mantle is so improbable... so burly..... and then: there you are, balanced on your pinky, feet under the overhang, nary a hold in sight. What now?
The Fallen Arch, a real puzzlemaker, one of the sweetest problems around for sure.
