FairweatherMany times   Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 13, 1978


If I wasn't out at JT or in Idyllwild, I was either at Rubidoux or Big Rock. During the late 70's and early 80's, I was climbing at least a couple days every week. This was a fun place if not too hot. Nearly all bolt protected face routes. Did all existing routes except English Hanging Gardens. Met Mark H. here with Larry, and the 3 of us went on to climb many pitches together.
Fun times.

farrisglLot of climbing here 1973 - 1979  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 4, 1973


Seems like yesterday when I climbed at Big Rock. Bit of a hastle at the time in order to get permits. In reading the logs, it appears the biggest problem now is forgeting to pay the permit fee and crowds. We used to rarely see anyone. Still, I need to visit again soon.

jonmeek16Awesome Slab Climbing  Sucess!


My partner and I have been climbing at Big Rock for more than 6 years. It's a great place and easy access to get to. This is a great rock to train for "Snake Dike 5.7***** on Half Dome".
We've climbed just about every route on rock, with exceptions to the 5.11's.
Can get crowded on the weekends in the winter. All the bolts are still real solid.

I love Lake Perris because it's so close to home. Hang your stuff or the squirrels will get into it.

but not easy to locate routes. I had a hard time determining what was what, but oh well. Seems like a good place to come if you are in the Inland area and want a quick outdoor place to go.

Not a great place but if you are in the area do the 5.9 under the roof to the left, pretty fun.

Did several day trips out here when I was a beginner. You quickly run out of reasons to return when Tahquitz and J-tree are almost equal driving distance (at least for me).

darinchadwickRoute Climbed: Northwest passage, some other stuff. Date Climbed: 1st time in 1995  Sucess!


My first introduction to Southern California granite. I'd never known such friction. I'd never known such runouts either. Aaahh, but I learned much after going to Joshua tree and Tahquitz. A revisit to Big Rock, and things didn't seem so hairy after all.

forjanRoute Climbed: Various (African Flake Direct, The Hard Trough, Pudnurtle, Puppy Dog, Right Flake, The Trough) Date Climbed: November 2003  Sucess!


Led various sport routes there (African Flake Direct, The Hard Trough, Pudnurtle, Puppy Dog, The Trough). Also followed "Right Flake."

This is a nice but unfornutanely very crowded crag.

This is the rock that started my love/hate relationship with scaling stone. My first ever route: 'Puppy Dog', 5.6. On my last trip there, I had to wait my turn while some "dude" in lizard-skinned duds showboated in front of my girl! And, no, it wasn't Jim Morrison reincarnated......!!

DebRoute Climbed: Several Date Climbed: July 2001  Sucess!


I've lost track of how many times I have taken budding climbers to this slab or how many times I've paid my daughter to belay me. Most notable climbs was my maiden soloist climb while anchored to a picnic table AND the attack of the swifts while ran out and off-route with no quick draws left.
