Don't be afraid of what you can't see around the corner. Be curious and remember that you will never find out until you go look for it. Kudos to our high school grad boys who crushed it yesterday to celebrate a new chapter of their lifes. Here is Devon making moves into the unknown.

Let's start them young! Here is Lexi learning how to use a top rope setup belaying her sister. It is amazing how empowering a simple and yet highly responsible task can be. We surely had a a lot of challenges to tackle and were rewarded by great views. Thanks for coming out.

Santa Cruz Classic-“Bates Arete”

A must climb if you are in the area. Castle Rock’s sandstone boulders are awesomely smooth with many sloper type of climbs. The guidebook compares CRB with Fotainebeleau which makes sense… just not as many climbs. Totally worth a stop when traveling through.

Great Day of Exploring Some Local Rock

Dr. D and I were psyched to be taken out by Craig Phares who showed us around on his backyard circuit. SoCal seems to never disappoint! We climbed some world class problems in the middle of just another boulder sprinkled hillside near Hemet. It is great to realize how much potential and actually unclimbed rock there is everywhere around us. A lot of of these rocks have not seen many hands on them. Here you can see Craig stylin one of the warm up climbs
