Comments: Although I regret I can't commit to the Nov. date to go to Stonewall, I will be going there this month as we're camping at Oakzanita campground for the last 3 weeks of Oct.
So many great memories there before the fire, walks through the forest on both trails, so many birds and animals and wonderfull varied climbing.
Climbing in the heat, snow, hail and ice, Santa Ana winds-truely a very special place here in wonderfull Southern Calif.
I will once again get with the rangers to get permission to ... more >>

Comments: I believe it was Dave Shockley who once said "If you can climb 5.9 at Misson Gorge, then you can climb 5.9 ANYWHERE in the world!"

A 5.9 at Mission Gorge is no 5.9!!!

And once you learned to master the climbs at Mission Gorge, the rock climbs there will have taught you many, many things.

Ever climb there in the rain-I have and thus learned even more and that led me to be able to climb waterfalls that were currently flowing.

Now that's what I'm talking about children!

Comments: Later on this week I will be posting to this site and another one called super topos or something like that photos of my topo's of Descanso Crag, Stonewall Pk. and Lawson Pk.
I will be doing this in an attempt to once again make known what I've put up along with others that existing when I first visited these wonderfull sites.
Of most importance is that people need to stop adding bolts to other peoples 1st ascents, especially if they can be top-roped should you feel them to be unsafe or runnout.... more >>

Comments: Yes, the climb actuall starts on the right and works left up the diagonaling seam/crack. You can go up directly but the true flow is the seam/crack. I should know, I put it up-Martin Veillon.
As far as the AKA "In Your Eye" in the guidebook is most likely a slam at me personally for removing the many bolts several years ago that were added to many of my 1st ascents. I am back and will be removing them once more until the day I die and then my son and 4 grandsons take over-forever!!!

Comments: I am Martin Veillon and am back out of semi-retirement.
I along with others have 137 established climbs here, both top-rope and lead. Once again someone has come back here and added numerous bolts to my 1st ascents, some right next to protectable cracks-those responsible for any and all bolts added to my climbs need to remove them or else once again I will. I don't add bolts nor remove bolts next to other peoples 1st ascents out of respect for the 1st ascent as has always been the Stone Master r... more >>
