Oops! It's Thomsen - no P and there's an E. I'll edit what I wrote above. That's Greg and Jim Thomsen of Wilderness Experience.

It's snowing in Seattle today - just started at 9:30 AM. Maybe I'll go do my buildering workout in full conditions! Should be bewildering.

Wow, fun to read about the valley stores. And great to hear from you McHale....we had some great times!
The stories about the Tarzana Mountain Store are pretty much accurate. Greg and I started Wilderness Experience in the back room. I had worked for Kelty in Glendale in the late 60's and was the one who aDded the climbing section in 1968. They opened a store in Northridge that Greg and I bought sometime around 78 or so. Curt's right, very original name. We were going to name it The Mountain Store after the Tarzana shop but decided to be very original and call it the Mountain Shop.
Curt's story about Laurie's store is accurate. After it closed I lost touch with Laurie and never heard anything about her or from her....until a month ago. She is in Army Intelligence and has served 2 tours in Iraq and 2 in Afghanistan.
Fun to think about all those great times we had...and thanks to mad dog for telling me about this post. Right now I'm in Australia on my sailboat Tenaya. Later this year we will head for Indonesia and Africa..

Did Stoney get any rain from this last storm that blew thru? Tempted to get out there on Sat. if it stayed dry. If not, the garage needs cleaning...

It stayed dry. I do believe there will be a good amount of traffic there this weekend.

Enjoy!

Dan.... no I only own a I-phone... it needs sunshine.

When Frummy gets back from his ez-rider vacation to New Orleans he can post pics....

Good crew last nite, it was nice and warm in till about 8.

I still can't get use to headlamp bouldering...

I can't get my finely tuned/adjusted sense of balance going cause I can't find the horizon....

I get there earlier and have not seen Mike. It's been a while since I've seen him, probably out sailing/biking the world in between cruzing 5.11R and calling it 5.10 max.

yeah bitches no climbing...

seems to me like thee are more broken holds this year than most others...and it happens because people climb too soon after the rain. Even if a hold doesn't break it will still flex and weaken, shortening it's lifespan. Please avoid climbs that have small flakes if it's at all damp out. Go run laps on 3 pigs, pump traverse...ya know...stuff that wouldn't break even if you climbed it while it's rainin!

Don't worry, while it is nice and wet and soft on Sunday morning I will be chiselling those broken holds back into place.

So many new climbers without a clue. Hope someone is saying something to them while I'm away. Not that it does much good, it's the principal. I hate being the Stoney Point police, but I'm good at it. & a little help from my friends would be appreciated.
