Comments: You can see our tracks heading up left first, but the huge cornice gave us second thoughts.

Comments: Years ago, followed the "walk off" advice of the old orange Bishop Area Rock Climbs guide and got into all kinds of trouble.

Comments: Adequate coverage to snow climb, but either very hard snow or crusty powder over ice - lots of French technique employed, deeper towards the ridge line, with about a foot or so of powder over hard snow/ice, ice-axe penetration either very little (due to shallow snow) or required reasonable effort.

Comments: Followed the left branch but didn't like the look of the summit terrain, came back down a bit and took a lower right branch which led nicely up a few steps to a wonderful summit ridge - April early 90's.

Comments: Good story Phil - I'm thinking tricouni nails or Koflachs would work great.

Comments: You just succeeded in freaking me out. I was thinking "why aren't there any photos posted? Maybe I'll go back and take a few"....never mind.

Comments: I think this is one I climbed back in the 90's shortly after the first ascent by the looks of it. I thought it was a very good climb - as it stuck in my memory better than most others there.

Comments: Mark Thorpe's article about Stoney Point in Ventura Blvd Magazine is on the streets. Although it is not a technical exercise is it a very well written and thoughtful accounting of where we climb.

An online edition is likely to be posted here soon.

Comments: Thanks for posting Nick. Although I've never actually done the groove, it bears an uncanny resemblance to Hot Buttered Rump.
