Caleb.... IIRC there was a small website about that place.... I think the climbers name is Jack McBroom (sp?) he posted a ton on SummitPost.... at one time Jack held the speed record for all of CA 14ers..... wasn't broken till recently by folks who used a airoplane. I think he was a teacher at Hemitt HS.........

maybe a deep search of the NET might yeld results.

It is a fun place with some nice stone.

There are like 4 or 5 different editions of the guidebook authored by the possum. Not sure if that McBroom character even knows who the possum is... maybe he does. Anyway, if I run into you out there I will be able to give you one of the guidebooks... It is a really cool piece of work!!! old school, just like the possum...
