Pyro...... thanks for posting.

The paint really gets me. The dam graffiti placed by "MS13" is bad enuf, but now we have some "Eco-do gooders" painting over the stone! Fu-k two coats of paint is extra slick.

And some other do-gooders took a "Hydro-blaster" to the stone, that wore off the patina exposing the soft soft soft stone underneeth, we lost good problems.

Bob Kamps was the keeper of the stone, we need a new one, how about you pyro?

Fat..... no way! Juan is now only a lurker.

He is never seen around those parts anymore. The photos he posted were from BITD....

I have stood in front of a water blast crew and defended boulder one in the early 90's. They called the police on me.

I also have gone after film crews f*#king up the rocks.

As for painting over Graffiti I have never touched Boulder one or Turlock.
All my painting except for some on Mozarts was done on the summit boulder field.

I was their last Friday and it is looking really bad again.

When I can do the pigs again I shall appear.

Wow,

So cool to see pics of where I cut my climbing teeth. Haven't been there in probably 13 years.

Such fond memories of bouldering with Kamps, Wilson, Guy, Forrest and Dimitry, amongst others. Bob showed me so many crazy ass traverses with some seriously contrived and contorted body positions.

What's with all the pads? Didn't have that stuff BITD. Every body should have the full experience of pitching off onto the hard dirt below Endo Boy, Yobo mantle or the like!

Also, I love how Stoney just used the B scale. So much easier to figure out ratings. If it was 5.11 or under, it could be done. If it was B1 or B1+, it would take a lot of work, but it could be done. If it was B2 or B3, it most likely was impossible :) Then again, the vibe was more like three classes of problems. I can do it, I might be able to do it, or no F-ing way I can do it.

I love people that come out to Stoney and then complain about having to do 'Eliminates'. I have been climbing there for 37 years! How in the hell am I supposed to keep things interesting unless we start eliminating the easy holds. Bouldering is a game best played with a tightly structured set of rules.

Pumping the Three Pigs! If I could Just pump that out I could climb 5.10. That was my thinking long ago. I remember many days in the summer after work we would boulder at Stoney, Lots of history. It was a dump then and still today. I guess thatís what makes it Cool.

I noticed that a key hold to the left of three pigs is now gone. Was that done during the water blasting. I used to be able to crank up and avoid using the first three holes. If it was water blasting who the f*#k did it?

BBA good shots. You take em?

The one legged man is sort of famous, I can't remember his name. I did see a old LA Times article about him, he was climbing, leading, "Finger Tip" at Taquitz.

I love the "White Dude" graffiti, wish we could preserve some of it. After the last fire we found some: "Ken" "Don" "John" "1970" .......

Guy- my armchair mtn'eer brain recalls Ray Gorin being the one-legged climber? BBA?

Also like the extra grubby clothes on the future Patagonia CEO. A late 50's way of saying "f*K the man!" versus 60's version of long hair, 90's tattoos, '00's piercings. maybe also the result of making pitons on a forge...

and da'fuca shout out to 3 little PIGS. i used to run a dozen laps to simulate climbing a full pitch of .10a. now i'd be lucky to struggle up it w a TR geeebus.
