I beg to differ with the opinion that that is the best San Gabriel Mountain video ever. I realize it's a little stale, but check out...

Very nice video dude(s). Strange though. Where can one find buckthorn, yucca and manzanita in the San Gabriels?

Nice tribute Taco, I'm humbled by all the friends and routes that I've been allowed to tag along with and on, I've learned more this Fall/Winter/Spring about how to do things right, than all the previous years combined.

I want to thank each and everyone of you for that, what a great snow season it's been.  Very Happy  Very Happy  I'm lucky and blessed to have made such good friends Very Happy

Damn.   You've givin' me local snow-play separation anxiety!
Nice seeing your season in review, though.
But does this post mean you've hung up your 'pons for the year?

Taco,

Thanks for the awesome slideshow video. It was great to join you on a few climbing adventures this season and hopefully more in the future.

Btw, nice job climbing all over the SG Mountains. You really showed everyone (including me) what it has to offer in the winter.

-Mike  Cool

Yeah, Lonnie is there. The campground is now open, but you're not supposed to go to the falls.

However, I just saw this on Altadena Blog: http://www.altadenablog.com/2010/...anyon-in-theory-and-practice.html

The Day I Got Caught in San Gabriel Mountain Quicksand...

After a rain storm, and before Arcadia public works showed up, I thought I would gather some free decomposed granite with which to fill the worn-out barn stalls at Adams' Pack Station...

Wow.  So, is this like the Banff film fest?  In other words, will this be shown in various locations locally?  I'd like to catch this one...

Looks like our closest showing will be in Ojai.  Though it says they're adding dates and locations, so "check back often".

Yes, such nonsense must be eliminated immediately.  It makes the rest of us look bad.

Ojai?  Ojai's not that bad.  There are a lot of nice hikes out that way...  Smile

OK, so this is actually interesting.  The film will be shown at the Pine Mountain Inn in conjunction with the 3rd Annual Pine Mountain Pulldown which is a "bouldering competition and festival."

It's kind of out in the boonies (see map below), but there really is some good canyons and peaks and stuff out there.  There's a lot of cool stuff up Santa Paula Canyon if you don't mind getting a little wet.  There are some pretty big pools and side canyons and such.

The venue doesn't seem to be on any map, the event doesn't answer their phone, and the venue doesn't seem to HAVE a phone.

I'm going to take my SPOT. Trip report and movie review if I make it back alive.

Well that was a strange night. I paid $30 for a friend and I to watch 8 or so short films, lying in a dirt field, on somebody's crash pad.

The venue was essentially a camping meadow, a few portapottys, some easy ups for sponsors, and a tiki-torch walkway. I taught the "audio guy" how to fix his swapped polarity issue. (Neat actually, I've never actually heard two speakers be so nicely out of phase before). Most of the people had setup their tents 3 feet from each other like little mushrooms colonies.

On the plus side, it was a great drive out the canyon. The climbing folk were totally welcoming, friendly, willing to share information, and fun to hang out with for a night. I got a bunch of free climbing passes to local indoor gyms. The films were AMAZING, funny, and absolutely worth the price. And the crash pad was actually quite comfy.

I'd recommend you seriously try and see it down in SD. Even more entertaining than the Banff Film Festival, earlier this year.

Dav - thanks for the report!  I almost made it to this, but ended up working just a little too late to make it out there in time.  But now I know it's worth it - so I'll definitely try to make it to the Santa Barbara showing.

Nice catch on the audio!
