Nice Clean Rock  Sucess!

I used to climb Stonewall back in the 80's when I lived in San Diego. Did most of the routes in the old guidebook. Loved the rock there and it was a great place to go when it was too hot everywhere else and I didn't feel like driving to Tahquitz. Frito Bandito & Bean Dip were definitely favorites.

What Dave Said...  Sucess!

Interesting route made more interesting by the grit and ice. I trailed a line so we could rappel from a nearly new looking anchor, seemed to be exactly 100'. Pretty fun for all the crap we went through to get there.

'Fire Starter'??  Sucess!

Fun enjoyable day with my beautiful climbing partner Deb! Hiked to the summit first (to say we "tagged" the top) and then scrambled to the Lower Tier to check out 'Forest Fire' (5.8). Ended up doing the route to the right of it but the same start. By Dave Kennedy's book, it has no name. Starts where Frito Bandito and Forest Fire begin (bad fire damage due to the 2003 fire.....granite is chossy) then goes up and right toward the open slab. OK gear (in the rotten section below) and 2 200'! Both bolts are not the best (especially the 2nd one). DK's guidebook shows the upper section (a seam on a headwall) of the route parallel Forest Fire until one gets to the horizontal slot near the roof. Not so! Take the hand crack on the left side of the headwall (this is where the route joins 'Forest Fire' and makes the 5.8 crux moves). I'd like to propose this route be called 'Fire Starter'.

BTW, if you can pull that seam on the headwall, spray on! Probably checks in at .10+/.11a!

Umm.. picked a couple lines?  Sucess!

Brought shoes/rope/small rack on a winter hike and picked a couple of lines. All I remember is that it was easy, fun, windy, and a couple of friends got poison oak bushwhacking around the base. Check out
