Description Suggest change

Old Baldys Frontside or The Gallery ihas most of the main blocks at Mt. Baldy. A lot of problems and a lot of Classics can be found among this cluster. Range from dirt burglars to highball er solos..... Grades Range from VB-V10. Greg Parker's Prow is probably the most sought after. The areas first development came from Mark Jacobs who in the late 80s was the first person to climb The Hydra Crack on lead. Using 1 piece of gear. :) Next up The Lewis Brothers Mike and Rusty bouldered a bit here as well as made the first rope less ascent of Hydra Crack V3. Larry Schaffer, who has some of the boldest leads in the close by Needles and gained the name "Scary Larry", bouldered here for a few years before Dave Asscherick and Greg took over and sent the now dozens of good problems in the vicinity.
