Lost..... Stoney is the same as it has always been...

Only the faces change.

Have you watched the cool video Cole made???

It captures the sprit of the place.

Climbing, Smoking and Drinking.... the climbers way.

That evil trench next to Turlock broke my ankle. I remember when it was farther away and Turlock's backside use to have nice flat ground.

yeah, I remember that too. it added exposure to the problems.

The "evil trench".... is now huge.

The ground is getting washed away, quickley, the exposure is now huge....
much more than like 5 years ago.

Also I think the Northridge Quake changed the angle of the overhanging side, after the shaking stopped, there was a large trench around the whole thing - except on the overhanging side, that was closed up tight.

Someday that thing is going to roll over.

As compared to a movie critic a guide book critic is entitled to one's own opinion's.

guyman and Cole, that video has Cult Status amoungst the friends I've loaned it to. It speaks to the boulderer in every climber's heart.

Its every bit as iconclastic as Robinson's A Day in the Open, a Night on the Ground.

LOVED IT!!!!!! Have watched it many times.

When they built the houses on the southeast of Trulock they changed the drainage.

So...

On another note, is there any old/new projects developing into something different? As holds break, things shift, etc? I know Stoney is a very dynamic place. What's the latest greatest people are working with, on, or around this season?

^^^^ That be the newest thing. ^^^^^

Stoney is ever evolving, things are always changing a little at a time

And sometimes a lot in one milli second.

At the same time it never changes.

I think the houses were there before the trench. Seems to me that the late eighties had some wet winters that consequently created the trench.

No the house came after. We used to park back at Turlock behind the Eucalyptus trees.

I've dug up many arrowheads & other tools where the houses now stand.

DMT - Thanks a lot for the kind remarks about the Stoney Point movie. Lord knows it was a labor of love and it's always nice to hear about someone watching it and enjoying it. Thanks for sharing it as well!
