Boulder Basin is such a beautiful place that my Daddy requested his ashes be scatted there (far, far from the boulder problems ~ !

South Ridge is such a beautiful place it is where my wife and I chose to get married.

that s ridge is a special place. really special. been hitting that place up since craig fry first published his bouldering book. never get sick of it. may take a sabbatical from time to time, but it is always great to go back.

and still, i can go there to get away from crowds... bullet hard granite; quality second to none.

Yes, I agree with Scott....... we ALL were very much inspired by Largo, Stonemasters, etal. We were standing on the shoulders of giants.

Kerwin......I touched up your original photo for clarity. That's one "BAB" (Big Ass Boulder).



Great photo klk !

Pic of Warren bouldering.... WOW !! Forgot he had a "Watusi" digit. Ha !



Scott....didn't we rename the Jewell to... " A mirror at the base will get you up any face". Ha !!

Gonna dig into the archives this weekend for more BM pics.

Hey a bunch of locals from Bishop are talking about a trip to Black Mountain. Is the gate open and is there snow at the base of the boulders? Thanks

The gate was open last week. We had a weak storm roll through, so i don't know if it's still open. Even though the gate was open the Forest Service station in Idyllwild was saying it was closed. Come down Memorial weekend, there should be a "Boulder Bash." The yearly "opening weekend" party.

love the shot of s ridge. that little cove has a good handful of excellent problems. more pictures gosh darn it all. i want shots of fuller ridge. those will at least help me know where to aim when i take off into the brush.

I went up to black mountain yesterday because the place WAS open last time i went. black mountain is closed and the sign says it will remain closed until may 16th due to hazardous tree removal.

So we went to gv instead and climbed a pretty good climb. a little licheny and flakey, but a pile none the less. for a not so outta the way pile, it was great fun. from what i have been told, truth or fiction, there are a number of them all over "the hill." some better than others... of course.
