Comments: Nice old dead trees. I don't want to be around when those come down. Victims of the drought, air pollution, and bark beetles.

Comments: As mentioned in the CAUTION in the intro. The routes are NOT clean and a helmet is advised, especially for the belayer or 2nd below. A good climber never drops rocks on others and does their best to clean potential hazards. This rock exfoliates. What is solid today may come off in your hand in a few years. Rain and heat will work things loose. Most folks establishing routes have cleaned for safety. But be wary all the time.
Spider Savage quote regarding rock in the Los Angeles Basin.

Comments: Way to Go, Lisa. Nice job on your first ever sport lead. Stemming between the Fen and the right wall makes the rating more like 5.8+/9, as Matthew Fienup posted on April 5, 2012.

Comments: Phrynosoma.....best not to hand them, as it stresses them and makes them more prone to diseases and to regurgitate valuable resources that at that size they can scarcely afford to lose. LOOK, BUT DON'T TOUCH! They also don't make good pets as 70% of their diet consists of Harvester Ants and they don't thrive without this essential component in their diet.

Comments: Flicking clear cutting is an abomination and looks like hell. Fortunately this has grown over, but it takes years for that 2nd growth to cover up the mess the timber crews leave in their wake.

Comments: Is that a positive addition or not? As of 01/23/06 Tom Slater was indicating that there is a bolting ban at Wagon Caves. Also, is that corrosion on the underside of that "new" bolt? If so, that isn't a good sign at all.

Comments: Yeah, looks like a good pump, but not exactly deep water. And that's probably in high water conditions.
