Comments: The off-roaders and the Rowher Flats OHV area appear to be the main focus for the USFS and their fee programs, but the popularity of Texas Canyon with climbers affords the USFS another revenue source despite three court decisions against the highly unpopular Adventure Pass program. Climbers have been approached by rangers on several occasions to ask their participation in spreading the word that the Adventure Pass supports USFS services that benefit climbers. Does grading this slope and adding ... more >>

Comments: Here's a bench that has been added just downhill, below the memorial, on Rush Canyon Road, for the three Burbank teens that died on September 12, 2014, when their truck rolled down an embankment.

Bench and plants.

Comments: The three teens, from Burbank, were killed and two others injured when their truck rolled down an embankment on Rush Canyon Road at 2AM on September 12, 2014. The driver, Ian Bulbenko was killed and one of the injured teens regained conscientiousness at 7:30am and called for help. The teens, all age 19, were recent graduates of John Burroughs High School in Burbank, CA.

Comments: Nice old dead trees. I don't want to be around when those come down. Victims of the drought, air pollution, and bark beetles.

Comments: As mentioned in the CAUTION in the intro. The routes are NOT clean and a helmet is advised, especially for the belayer or 2nd below. A good climber never drops rocks on others and does their best to clean potential hazards. This rock exfoliates. What is solid today may come off in your hand in a few years. Rain and heat will work things loose. Most folks establishing routes have cleaned for safety. But be wary all the time.
Spider Savage quote regarding rock in the Los Angeles Basin.

Comments: Way to Go, Lisa. Nice job on your first ever sport lead. Stemming between the Fen and the right wall makes the rating more like 5.8+/9, as Matthew Fienup posted on April 5, 2012.

Comments: Phrynosoma.....best not to hand them, as it stresses them and makes them more prone to diseases and to regurgitate valuable resources that at that size they can scarcely afford to lose. LOOK, BUT DON'T TOUCH! They also don't make good pets as 70% of their diet consists of Harvester Ants and they don't thrive without this essential component in their diet.
