weather out here in Johnson Valley is unforgiving. The wind
is howling, and the temperatures are rapidly dropping. Mother
Nature threatens to douse us with rain, but she hasn't so
far. It's currently in the low 30's, but feels much colder
due to the brutal wind.
are camped out on the front row of some awesome looking
obstacles. Shannon Campbell pulled up a few minutes ago
and cried "Holy $%#* it's way to cold for us lizards
out here!" He took a quick look at the courses and
headed back to town to his warm hotel room.
courses look to be very technical, with some awesome bonus
gates. Lots of tight cracks, crevices, drop off and climbs
are the name of the game this weekend. I have never been
to this area of Johnson Valley, but I can tell you that
it is an incredible playground!
Weather Channel forecasts clear sunny days for Saturday
and Sunday, so hopefully the wind will die down and we will
have tshirt weather for the competition tomorrow.
The 2003 Rock Crawling season was incredible. The technology,
the talent, and the courses would have been unimaginable
only a couple of years ago. We saw John Bundrant turn the
rock crawling world upside down with the help of "Tiny"
and his spotter, Larry McRae. We got to see other top teams
duke it out all year long. The courses were completely insane,
and UROC and RCAA decided to merge.
you believe the 2004 season is only days away? Rich Klein
and the CalROCS crew are wasting no time by kicking off

brung" event meaning there are no classes, and everyone

Webster, and John Bundrant will be there battling for the
