Tom Slater stoked on following Arkenstone .11b on first ascent, Shuteye Ridge.

Average Rating = 4.33/5 Tom Slater stoked on following Arkenstone .11b on first ascent, Shuteye Ridge.

We had to snowmobile 10 miles, then hike 2 miles in the snow to send it, but it was worth it (I think). I was sicker than a dog the whole day. This was the high point. Grahm took this, great colors and tons of snow in the high country. Shuteye in April...

1-2-3 Jump!

Average Rating = 3.57/5 1-2-3 Jump!

Tom Slater on the opening move of Jump To Hyperspace 5.10c at Millers Crossing. You have to jump (unless you're 6'5") for the first hold to get on, then crank it to get feet. Then it's up and away.

I think this problem is easier if you're taller (V1?). The edge is really nice and sharp, but the landing sucks.

The Sea Cliffs

Average Rating = 0.00/5 The Sea Cliffs

These are out on the point. I did a line in the middle of the picture. The cliff is almost 20 feet. You could almost TR the routes, enough cracks on top if you have gear. Otherwise... don't fall. You'll break your back and drown.

Lovers Point Bouldering

Average Rating = 3.57/5 Lovers Point Bouldering

While the kid was digging himself a crater, and the wife was laying out, I did a few easy problems out on the point. Not great, but not bad either. There is excellent snorkeling here as well, and good surfing around the corner at Asilomar Beach.

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Can you climb this thing?! Eagle Rock, Los Angeles.

OK, many of you would say "Why would you want to?" but it is blocks from my in-laws (enough said) so does any LA urban cragster know if there are any routes up this thing, or is it even legal?

This is a 5.7 TR that follows the obvious arete/corner on the right side of the main face. It is more sustained than the regular route, but only a TR. There are lots of TR variations on the face, but this is the best one.
