Comments: I'm all about exploring and trying to find new areas, I love going to odd places even if the climbing isn't 5 star but seriously don't waste your time here. The first 3 boulders have a few climbs that are all easy and there is a hard climb at the top of the hill but every boulder we walked to was too short and polished, i'm not trying to discourage but just trying to give an honest opinion. I wish someone warned me before wasting gas money and felt bad that my friend dented his car trying to get... more >>

Location: CA : Los Angeles Basin : Santa Ana Mountains : Upper Candy Store Boulders : Glue up traverse (V1)

Comments: eh.. i gotta say, (not to be rude or anything) but i did not post this climb because it's a climb with glue on holds. These were here about 2 years ago so they must be strong enough but its just wrong. I have no idea who put them up but this practice should never happen. it's like chipping holds; you just don't do it. The only time holds should be glued on is if a key hold broke off of a climb, but even then it's questionable. so for any one out there reading this - don't get any ideas... more >>

Comments: you should check out the boulders below "Grumpy Man" those look untouched and i've seen them from the other ridge line and they look good.

Comments: I have the Craig Fry guide, that map just isn't that accurate. it's close enough to get by but I have talked to the locals over the years and they say there is a guide that is out of print now and there are only so many copies out there. I talked to one guy who had it but he was keeping it a secret, i don't know why though because Cariso is mostly over grown anyway. well keep eyes and ears out, until then we'll just keep re-discovering boulders and giving them new names. happy climbing!

Comments: I assume you are talking about the neto nomads? is that how u spell it? anyway it was the only video I was able to find as well. the video i found said its 1 yr old and they climb right next to pipe around, they are climbing the easier slab that finishes with the same finish (almost). can u post the link here so i can watch it if you are talking about a diff video. Thanks for the heads up i'm sure there will be a lot of disputes over route names in the future. IF ANYONE HAS THE ORIGINAL CLIMBING... more >>

Comments: ya my buddy mike harper did that one last year, fun line, and he my self and others are projecting the harder climb slightly to the right. to be honest i think almost all of these boulders have been climbed, there isn't one that my friends and i haven't at least attempted. and i'm sure they have been climbed before us so i just put FKA (first known ascent) if i think it might have been one. There are a few boulders that are hidden in bushes that might be first ascents. sorry to get any hopes up ... more >>

Comments: ok let me try to help you out... if you find no fat chicks which is about 100+ yards past the aid boulder (where the 'no fat chicks' boulder pinches the trail) go another 50 yards ... ish... down hill and you will see castration. from castration keep going and the trail splits. left goes straight down hill, right goes straight up hill under an oak tree. go up under the oak and you will be on the back side of big day at pink house. hope that helps

Comments: No holds broke but you're probably right about it being v3. Right next to the shocker feature there is a key hand that is also used for the foot. Look for the notch on top in the dead center to mantle up smearing feet.
