The only shot of the Capitan area I got. Looked pretty dry except one pitch on Aurora (which Neil is staring at) and a little further right.

That's the amount of snow I was talking about on the regular route (I think that's the top out at least).    It was dripping down a bit, but it looked doable for someone adventurous.

Comments: Pretty sure you are describing ELP not Pink Floyd. Pink Floyd is further right and rarely done.

ELP is done often and there is even a very very hard low start though not sure it has gone since it broke. Starts matched on the undercling by Mona Lisa graffiti. Undercling is still fragile.

Comments: Yes. The "No Pigs" holds are all still there though the start holds are worn down. And you avoid the top pinscar as well. It's not V3 though. Much harder.

Comments: Great spot, but the gnats were out in force on a hot day. Lots of options for training if you're a beginner to intermediate. Good place to take a fairly new climber.

Comments: Purplepineapple: I don't toprope too often, so I'm not familiar with the boy scout wall area, but it's my opinion that the bees should be kept wherever the boyscouts are climbing.

Maybe you should post under your real name if you are going to be proposing a big change like this. And only a few of the old timers actually belong to this site. Go to Boulder 1 on Tuesday and Thursday nights and ask everyone with grey hair what they think. I for one am not for glueing holds. I'm also not for messi... more >>

Comments: Was working this again the other day with some newer climbers. The sit start is V1 tops. With the mantle being the crux.

Comments: My buddy Callum and I shot a bunch of climbs on our Flip and iPhone this winter. Thought you guys might get a laugh or two out of it. It's not the quality filmmaking Cole's documentary will surely be. Facebook cause of music rights.

Location: CA : Los Angeles Basin : Stoney Point : Sculpture's Crack Wall : Sculpture's Crack Traverse (V1)

Comments: The best version of the traverse IMO goes from the sit on the right through the bulge to the last hold before the tree, then back right and down into the sit again. I keep falling/slipping on the last move back into the sit, but I reckon it's probably 5.12ish.

The whole thing is pretty beta intensive and pumpy, so it's hard to rate. Don't matter much though. It's a great problem whatever the rating.

Urban Rock by Chris Owen is a pretty accurate guidebook except for a few notable breaks this ... more >>

Comments: About 15 yards uphill there is a threesome of boulders with what looks to be a pretty cherry prow in the middle. Unfortunately there is a lot of vegetation underneath... If anyone chopped it out I wouldn't say anything. JK... Sort of.
