When I first started working on the guide book for Southern California Bouldering,

Dave Katz sent me these pictures and a lot of great info; around 1989ish
But apparently, my guide book was a disappointment for him, so he published his own guide book.
Which was a huge success!

Katz gave me the wrong info about the Sunset Stones
Thanks dude

I guess some locals aren't very good at convening the critical specifics that should be included in a Guide.

And No, I don't have a lot of free time on my hands, I can just do a lot of things with the time that I use wisely.

Katz was never contacted by you and never sent any pictures to you. I just spoke to him.

WTF???
He didn't send them to me??
Then how did I get them?? I sure as hell didn't take them. How did I get them?
Both of you are wack jobs that have gone off the rails
are you Katz?

doesn't matter, my memory is 100% right on.
Katz sent the photos to me, then published his guide after mine, fact

I have a bunch of other stuff that Katz sent me along with the photos, from before my guide was published, that he sent to be used in my guide, like I said above.

The Katz Guide uses some of my info.

If any one can be said to be unreliable, it's not me.

Golly, I try and post some cool history, and I get sucker punched by BS

Well I just talked to Katz, and he said you guys are lying
Why would I make it up?, why would I have the photos he sent me?

Talk about shame!!
Trying to Fuc with me is not nice, I'm going to have to call Coz and have him take over from here on out.

Dr F , Craig Fry, i would not be bragging about your Southern Cali Bouldering Guide. From a locals point of view it clearly shows you were greedy, and complacent. The information in this guide shows a lack of experience climbing in the Stoney Point and Santa monica mountains.
also you pointed the finger in your earlier posts that you relied on 2nd hand info and then published botched information for the climbing community.
Now REPENT FOR YOUR SINS and stop deleting posts
Is it true you no longer climb, WHat happened DR F?????

I will respond to your BS allegations
I have not deleted any posts, that was Russ's projection, that is his MO.
and his interjections are getting a little annoying because it's just sh#t he has made up to "F" with me.

Did I ever say that I was a Local to every area in the Southern California?
No, I had to rely on local sources for info. No area will ever be able to described perfectly. Every guide is unbelievably hard to produce, and hence a lot of imperfections will have to be accepted as just a part of life, and you should just be glad that there is guide at all.

So Now you are whining about a 20 year old guide?, Get a life, I don't care what you think of it, or any other lies you want to fantasize about.
Katz sent me those photos to be used in my guide, before he published his, fact.

Here is my advice, don't use my guide, Throw it away, Use the Katz guide and the other Stoney guide. They are way better for you locals.
My guide was to be used as a more general Bouldering guide for ALL of Southern California.

Man we are tough on our own.

Dr. F did his best & yet we complain.

Guides are hard (time consuming) to put together & easy to complain about.

& I'm good about complaining.

It's amazing to me how we as climbers talk about each other.

We are climbers --- we are self center idiots. Some nice - some not so nice.

There is nothing important about climbing.

That's one of the things that is great about climbing.

Because someone can climb a big # SO. I'm glad for them.

Yabo once said to me that he had more respect for a person that worked & raised a family & could climb 10a, than for some hot shot that climbed hard & could not be polite.

I have an idea!

Since Dr. F and Mister E have both written guide books, it must be easy, right? It is your turn Pyro. Let's see you write a good one.

Do it and hey, you might earn some really good money and prove a point all in one!

Yeah, and how about some photos from back in the day... always wondered what happened to folks like M. Zotto, Bill, Stan, P. Cowan, Fish, M. Jaffe and many more whose names are no longer in my memory banks... geez I wish I'd taken some pictures. Too much fun to argue out there!

Back around 89 - 90 Jaffe had a kid & his wife would not let him out anymore.

Bob Yoho's behavior at a party of climbers when the kid was about 6 weeks old might have something to do with Jaffe not being let out around any of us ever again. The look of shock on that woman's face. They left shortly there after & I haven't seen Jaffe since.

frumy yabo was right! quality vs quanity.

i'd rather read a small print-out guide which is accurate vs some page after page of boched up information guide book!

also: if i was a guide book author toward stoney i'd put Boodawg on the front cover!

p.s Dr F this is the best line i've heard all day!

Pyro, the current published stoney guide has its fair share of mistakes. Wouldn't you rather spend your time giving that guy sh#t since all the gym rats at The Point carry that around and spray wrong info...

Or better yet, get to top roping those creekside choss piles per usual. YOU ARE RUINING YOUR ONLY GOOD (a personal favorite) THREAD DAMNIT!
