I am looking to lead Angel's Fright  and need someone to come along.  I want to do as much climbing on Tahquitz as possible starting at the lower grades and move up.  I have a lot experience but have only did Suicide stuff this summer and didn't climb any for ten years before.that.  I did Angel's Fright last month and want to repeat it a couple of times and then start going through the grades.  I used to do Tahquitz a couple times a week and know how to be efficient and want to get to the point that these are half day climbs.   So if you are interested let me know.  This would be great for someone in the local area because I would like to do climbs twice a week.

Somebody climb with Jim. He’s a good partner and a good dude. Sadly my 9-5 is holding me up from climbing early morning- mid day.

Today in Idyllwild it is 57 degrees and forecast to be 87 degrees with clear skies.

87 degrees? That's too hot to climb. Holcomb sounds like a much better choice.

Tahquitz Rock itself is around 7,000 feet elevation where today’s forecasted high temperature is in the upper 60’s deg F.  Very nice.

On Tahquitz you could freeze in the shade and get heat stroke in the sun on the same day! Yay!

White long sleeve can dampen those swings. Or enough knowledge to avoid transitioning. :)

I’m totally game to get some laps in on White Maidens. I still get a little off route on that one. I’d love to get it dialed. This week is hectic but next week would be great.

Ya, I am up for it.  I have done it two times this month and finally got the route dialed.  Just let me know when you want to come up I am off almost all days.

As of 6:30 a.m. the 74 pilot car is closed due to fog. FYI for those visiting. Be sure to check the Caltrans website for road conditions

Annual glacier advancement has begun. Gate is locked. JTree season has begun. Or Red Rocks. Holcomb still good also...

Hey James, I'm available Friday and Saturday 11/12, in case you never found a partner and would like to go this weekend.

I have a small single rack....have been wanting to climb Tahquitz for a while.

What do you mean by this? Is the parking area for tahquitz locked now? Closed off to climbing/hiking?

Ah damn!!! I was planning on going there sunday, when did they lock off the roads? This last week? Do you know what month they usually reopen Tahquitz?

Edit: The San Bernardino National Forest website says Humber Park is still open. Have they just not updated their website or what
