Comments: This route is actually called Water Torture and was put up by Brent Webster in 2005.

Comments: Fun route that tackles the obvious smooth bulge at the bottom - 12b seems about right. Thanks to Ken for bolting and cleaning this and for giving me the OK to get the FA...a great addition to the crag.

Comments: Finally received copies of the new guidebook. They will likely not be in stores for a month or so as inventory goes through my distributor to the bigger stores. In the mean time, and thereafter, interested people can purchase the book directly from me.

The book sells for $35 plus another $3 for shipping.

This book is a HUGE step up from the last edition and is printed in full color, with a large number of action photos and added features. There are 338 routes listed in this new book.

Comments: So the story takes a turn for the worse:

I was out there yesterday until about 2:00 pm. I left a static rope clove hitched to a few random bolts here and there in the middle of the affected routes, having brushed all the dirt off the exposed rock. I wanted to be able to just jug up and do the remaining work.

Returned this morning at 8:00 am to find that someone had stolen the rope and 6 or 7 draws.

The Quarry was crawling with people yesterday in this area, so someone either did this with... more >>

Comments: In a continuing effort to make the routes at the Quarry as safe and solid as possible, I have removed many tons of expanding and loose flakes off the flake band in the middle of the routes Culture Shock, Choss Revolution, and Buzzkill.

Over the next week or so, I will clean the newly exposed rock further, replace and/or move bolts and move on to the next on a long list of "to do" items at the Quarry.

Please enjoy other routes while this work is being done.

Thank you,

- Louie

Comments: This rock "fall" was intentionally done. That section of detached rock has been progressively shifting over the last few months. I and others had become aware of this and steps were taken to remove the rock at a time when no one was around.

The quarry as a whole is a work in progress and as loose rock is discovered it is either reinforced or removed. Sometimes (as in this case) routes are lost as a result. Rest assured that we will be cleaning and bolting the newly exposed rock, so there ... more >>

Comments: Got on this route yesterday and the clipping hold for the second bolt has broken off. The route still goes, but I would suggest mid-5.13 for the route the way it is now and caution that the second clip is scary. Might be best to stick clip the second bolt when leading.

Comments: OK - so after a very trying year in my personal life, I am becoming refocused on getting the next edition of the guidebook out. I'm hoping to have it done by the end of Summer (in time for next year's season), but that date may slip a bit depending on how much time I can devote to it. Rest assured though that I know it's much needed and getting it done is a priority to me.

Be safe out there, and have fun!

Comments: I'm getting started working on the new edition of the guidebook. The first book went to press when the area was still somewhat new and not that popular.

Now that the Riverside Quarry is one of the more popular sport climbing areas in SoCal, I'd like to get some feedback on the ratings so that this next edition will be as accurate as possible.

Feel free to email comments directly to me at socalbolter@cox.net or post them here (or both). I'm looking for feedback on difficulty ratings and also qu... more >>
