The overall plan: A hike up to the very top to visit Peannacle Wall. It's one of the higher locations at Exit 38 and so should be dry, espeically because there's supposed to very little rain this week.
The Climbing: Top rope and lead with a bunch of 5.8, some 5.9, and a few 10's. Most of which are four star rated. All are welcome regardless of skill level or if you've been outdoors before.

Peannacle has quite the view, so it's going to be a hike to get up there. Here's a nice panorama video of the place
Where to go
We'll gather at the Mount Washington Parking Lot (you can click on it in this map and see what it looks like, and the area we're heading to is labeled as Bob's if you want to scope out the trail ahead of time)
And after hanging out for fifteen minutes or so to give people a chance to get there, we'll start hiking up. Either join us for the hike or come join us up there if you can't get out of bed that early.
Stuff to bring
Essentials: Harness, shoes, water, sunblock.
Would be handy if you have them: Rope, helmet, quickdrawers, ATC/grigri, chalk, anchors.
I'll email all the rsvp-ers nearer the date and we can trade numbers to ensure late arrivals or lostee's (it happens) can locate us or catch up or get directions (if I don't reply immediately give it a little while, I might be climbing, belaying someone, or just out of breath from hiking)
When you see the champagne colored Toyota Corola with the 'LA County Coroner' sticker you're in the right place. At the crags look for the 'Union Jack' painted climbing helmet.
