I'm bored, so I'll jump in.

Sandstone - sedimentary rock -- loosely speaking.

Pyro knows more about rocks then I do.

I wonder what happened to Pete, after he moved to Utah, sort of lost track of him. Anybody know?

I think Peter is still in Utah sewing. Misa probably knows.

Fat Dad what you never parked at Turlock before?

I remember parking behind Turlock behind the fence. That's as close as I can remember parking.

Rock??

If it falls apart in the rain that's a stretch calling it rock.

Juss' sayin'...

That there is a monolith. Stoney is just a little pile of rocks.

Of all the famous launch pads of the world like Cape Kennedy, the Baikanor Cosmodrome, Stoney Point.........Stoney Point is my favorite.

McHale, when you blasted off it was on the above rock. Stoney point is more like a lunch pad.

But don't mind me, I'm just trying to have some fun. I'll be back at stoney soon enough, lunching and launching.

I do love the line from the "Entering The Park" section in the old John Sherman guide to Hueco Tanks:

"As you approach Hueco Tanks from the south, your first glimpse of the rocks will be disappointing, unless you're from Stoney Point."

Say what you will about Stoney, I'll bet that place has produced more fun per square inch than any other rock venue in SoCal. Great to see that photo of Peter. I remember him as an outstanding climber and really nice guy. Would love to see more photos of the 70s being posted. It seems like nobody carried a camera in "those days."

I'll post more one of these days. The Stoney Point budget is limited. I found a pic of an interesting mantle I used to do that overhangs the road on the way to the back side. To top it off, my step-dad is wearing a halibut hat in the photo! Unfortunately, I'm not doing the mantle in the photo.

That's pretty funny. Love the one you're with I say! Who was it that said "Life is like a Lunch Box - you never know what yer gonna get." The climbing at Stoney is real, and beats any gym on the planet. It's got all the imperfections that go with the real thing.
