      Why were you under a bridge?

      That is cool, any guesses to the backstory?

      Well, one of the guys on my crew is a rock climber, and I told him I knew of a spot in town that had climbing holds under a bridge. I was in the area and took some pictures for him. While I was down there, I found this cool picture. I wish I could speculate as to a back story....

          Dang. That would be a "Homeless Hilton" out here! We were repelling off an abandoned bridge in to an overgrown Gulley and we found a 1000cc motorcycle down there, missing the front forks and most of the fairings. If I would have had a truck (and a winch) I would have hauled that thing home to repurpose that motor. A 1L cart or Honda FL odyssey would be fun!

              Well, there weren’t many rooms left at this Hilton. I refrained from taking many pictures I wanted, due to not wanting to disrespect the residents there. We chatted and they were cool. We wished each other safe travels and went on our ways.

                Years ago I worked with two of the many people that put them up. They did this at several bridges around the city for climbers to be able to practice on their lunch breaks, or whenever they couldn’t get out to the mountains.

                This of course was before the days of climbing gyms.

                That maybe true. But to me they look to be eyes that hold the concrete forms ..

                The car pic - a memorial to the car for being totalled on or at the bridge. That's my guess.

                  Rock climber?
                  Here's the rock my stepson has been up numerous times now...El Capitan in Yosemite National Park

                  ElCap.jpg

                  His climbs are usually about 4 days up and 4 hours back down.

                  Kinda reminds of paraphrasing a line from 'Crocodile Dundee': "That's not a rock...THAT's a ROCK!"

                    I’m not there anymore, but I assure you that they are rocks that have been epoxied to the walls of the bridge abutment. I know the difference.

                    My rock climbing buddy has climbed El Cap, definitely a formidable undertaking!

                    You're right about that. I'll go and watch but I want no part of climbing it.

                      N-O-P-E! I’ll do a climbing gym or maybe some easy routes outdoors, but I’m to escared to do anything that crazy.

                        Not to get off topic, or derail this thread, but my son is an animal for climbing. He's summited Mt Rainier, Mt Adams, Mt Baker, Mt St Helens, and more. I thought I was tough, being a former Marine in southeast asia, but this kid knows no bounds. I love the photo. If you have a LEO friend or someone in the DMV, have them run the plate. I'd be interested in the story.
