I don't climb hard enough to do that, and whether quantifiably there is a difference between wet sloper crystal breaking and dry sloper crystal breaking has yet to be determined IMHO.
I don't think it is a question of how hard you climb. If sand is coming off in your hands you are a vandal and eco terrorist.  Yesterday I felt the same thing happening on both v1 and v8.  If you don't climb hard, you are probably over-griping and pulling even more sand off. But as a matter of fact, I never feel sand coming off in my hands when climbing on fully dry holds. But in the larger scheme of things all those boulders are just going to turn to sand in time and end up in front of the boardwalk, where more people will be able to enjoy them.

I guess its off to PG Sunnyvale this afternoon.

Conditions anyone? Thinking of heading up this morning and I don't want a repeat of last week.

Sitting at my desk here at work it looks beautiful out.

If you go post pics so we can live vicariously through your efforts.
Here's to sweat in your eye

Doesn't look like I will make it up today.  I am going to relocate the pile of mulch instead then head off to make the raviolis with Angelili.

Perfect conditions today. Not super tacky, but very pleasant. No bugs.

71F at 5pm yesterday.
No breeze to speak of.
Skeets were out, not horrible.
No black gnats.
Good session with the Santa Cruz contingent

Damn it was warm last evening. CRSP, where Munge can show you a pitch of climbing compressed into an 9x5ft traverse.

Soberanes fire really made the evening smokey without the benefits of any psychoactive aspect.

It was only 89 today. Another perfect summer day with fog early. Snooze you lose Yeti breath.

Fog Early? One of your neanderthal nicknames?

That's weak. I guess that is what happens when you don't climb at Pinnacles.

Road signs on 35 south from the 9/35 junction indicate 'local traffic only' but that just means your going to a local destination and not through to hwy 17.

Castle conditions were prime last night. No skeets yet. Some gnats, but barely notice them. Cool and slight breeze. Stone temps were cool to the touch and tacky.

Flies still out. Bring spray. No real skeets.
