Wow. Craig that was a plum to pick. I'll ask Jeff or Paul if they remember that. Your guide has been helpful over the years. Thanks. Any other good Stoney memories or stories?

Guy he left just before you got there. Young inner city guy (all muscled up & drunk ) walking by Turlock yelling at his woman to put their one year old down, cause " you're making that kid soft". The poor kid was tired & hot & his woman was at her limits. So I stepped in the middle of them and began giving him a lecture about being a man. Men don't raise their voices to women or children. That a real man makes sure that all women & children are save & feel save when he is around. I could go on for the hour that it took to get though his thick skull. In the end we had him falling of slime & hugging all of us old guys.

I was & am proud of all the climbers that stepped in & help me with this nut.

Expansion Chamber
I guess I was wrong about the date
It was 1986ish

Paul Anderson, Jeff Jackson and some other locals were working on it when I came up to them

I gave it a try, and got to their high point, and couldn't get past it

We all ran up to the top, and looked for for some holds for the next move,
we cleaned out a nice hold, near the top, but it was a long way past the high point.

Some other people worked on it, then it was my turn, I got to the high point, and just lunged for the top out hold and stuck it.

Great Day
I forgot if anyone else made it that day, and no one said if it was an FA or not.

I got some great shots of Jeff Johnson on the lower section
He was Very photogenic
Is he still around?

Matty nice shot.
Sorry Pyro I spent the last few day in the Alabama Hills.
Someone needs to take a crowbar to that place. At least to the bolts that are next to easily protectable cracks.

Whats up on Wed.? I'm going to the point Tues.

Nice Pyro, that's pretty cool. Gotta say even though I'm loving it out here Jtree, I still miss Tuesday/Thursday nights at the Point with all my buds.

Definitely in our hearts. Poor - Cole & Steph stuck out there in Jtree.
I guess it's not the worst place to be stuck if you can't make it to Stoney.
Hope to see you soon. We wouldn't want you stuck out there alone with nothing to do but climb.
Pyro gets tope rope Tue. going again after a long lay off.

Sat....am.

It's nice and dry.

Open for bizz.

On the way in to work this morning I saw the City of LA parks and rec. truck down there.

They had a gang of gang bangers all dressed in orange jumpsuits, picking up trash along Topanga.

Getting it ready for the annual REI clean up.

Now that is a good use of taxpayer money.
