Hi Shawn. Long time since we've heard from you.

It was my first multipitch climb, and on my second day of learning to climb (we climbed at Rubidoux the day before). I was 13 and initially being kind of spooked when leaning back on the anchors at the top of the first pitch. It was pretty glassy then (late 70s) so I can't imagine what it's like now. Perhaps the current closure will let it shed those decades of grease and chalk.

I haven't been back there in a long time. The last time may have been with Eric Held after getting rained out at Idyllwild.
