Comments: Led this Sunday and found it to be pretty easy--maybe 5.6. It's fun and gets you to the anchor for Sean Penn.

Comments: Did this route Sunday--TR then lead. When you're top roping it, make sure you set a directional on the top two bolts. I found the crux to be a little bit reachy for me at 5' 7" which made it feel legitimately 10d. Taller people may find it easier. This is a fun route--I highly recommend it.

Comments: Led this today and have to say that it was a real attention getter. Placed a good .75 in shitty rock/crack--don't. The whole flake is so crunchy and hollow sounding--but it made me feel a little better getting to the first stance--which wasn't really that bad once committed to. Anyway, thought is was 10b/c until TR afterward--feels like 10a now. Still really fun and secure-ish feeling.

Comments: DO NOT criticize the rescue effort unless you know all the details. From what I know, rescuers are first and foremost supposed to only do things they are trained to do and to do them safely. If it takes time to get the right people in place so that there are no further accidents, that's the way it has to be. I know the rescuers are thankful for the help you two provided.

Stolen 'deer' in Idyllwild.


Someone stole a deer from in front of La Casita restaurant in Idyllwild a few weeks ago. This particular deer has climbers painted on it and is part of a town-wide display of deer painted by local artists. If you see "Rocky" at a friend's house.... Turn the dirtbag in.
