Hey folks, remember when bouldering pads were just thin carpet remnants from Carpet Time? Does it still smell like horse manure on warm summer days?

Yup

Hi, was a great weekend at Stoney.

Warm weather has returned, for a day or so, and the young guns are hard at it...

Jah and AJ ... real names, I might have butchered the spelling....

Both fired the Yabo Mantle after a year or so of trying.

Big smiles all around.

and I even fired off a few... before it got dark.

Spencer.... I found your SoCal bouldering book.... the one by Dr. F
it was laying on the ground at Horse Flat... no lie.

That is a good excuse to blast out of Flag and come home.

Please Mr. wizard I want to go home. Even if it's raining. I promise I won't boulder till Stoney's dry.

Saw Sister Sheila the nun today (she's 80+), at St. Mary of the Woods here in Indiana.

High of 25 - wind steady 25 mph.

Heading south in the morning.

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?

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."
