I may get a chance to boulder with the family at Stoney morning of Jan 6th. 

This would be pretty cool for me, since it was the first place I climbed, back in 1970.

Is there anywhere nearby we could rent pads? 

We'll be coming from the Claremont area.

I still remember flailing on Hoof and Mouth and expect to do the same this trip! Isn't it kind of reachy?

TIA

Reachy indeed, very fun problem!

You can rent pads from Adventure 16 in Tarzana (there is another location in West LA near the 405, but I’m not sure they rent pads).

Mark.... have fun. 

And the Hoof is still 5.8 old school.... but its more reachey than ever... the ground is now about 2-3 feet lower then before. 

It seems like only the V4 and harder folks can even come close to getting it....    

Don't forget to go to Los Torros ......  the prices have changed a bit, but the ritas will still do you in. 

Tons of people go their and pads are sitting at the base of the problems, esp Sat morning. 

Right now its about 72 and sunny.

Thanks for the advice!

Had a really fun couple of hours.

Adventure 16 rental worked great.

But parking at Stoney is a nightmare! I don't want to talk about where we ended up...

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
