Swiss Cheese Wall on Big Rock
Hiking in to Outer Space Wall
Belaying pitch 2 of "Millenium"
A harder start to "Millenium"
This is the "Sunset Cave" (upper right) and "Hanus" (center) section of Big Rock
Traversing "Sunset Cave"
The horrendous, bottomless, flaring slot of "Hanus"
Continuing up a steep rib
Moving on to a more recent route "Climbing Cowboys"
The start is steep and encrusted with cobbles
Second ascent of "Climbing Cowboys"
Pushing off the giant white cobble on "Summer Sizzle" (obviously not in Summer)
Here's what it's like sizzling in Summer of '05
Above "Summer Sizzle"
An unclimbed balancing rock?
Hiking around the summit plateau
Second ascent of "Redneck Spire"
Climbing back out of the notch below the spire
Finishing to the summit plateau
Just a few more moves to the belay
Preparing the rappel on "Millenium"
Typical bolt anchors in the dubious conglomerate matrix
A dubious bolt of much later vintage
Topping out on "Wild"
The "Wild" boulder will not budge
More bolt belay anchors
Rapelling down "Wild" on Swiss Cheese wall
Already over 100 degrees atop "Outer Space Wall"
Coming down after our ascent of "Flowers on Venus"
Some exciting OHV trails behind Big Rocks
In the Jeep heading down to Big Rock
Climbers make good targets?
Passing through Steinbeck country on the way home
