At 6:30 the Carlsbad group headed out to Jtree. Apparently Sunday is the day to go anywhere because there wasn't a car on the road. We were a small group, 3 of us in total, but we were packed full of purpose!
We arrived at the Hidden Valley parking log at around 9am and the guidebook lead us straight to the JBMFP boulder. That's where we encountered the infamous Carlsbad Youth Team, lead by the biggest kid of all, Head Coach Adam Mashouri. Just around the corner appeared Joel and his daughter, Coby and his two youngsters, and trailing behind them was Scott the Beast with his wife and daughter. We went from 3 to 15 in no time, and just when we thought we had our Crew, Helga and Doug come strolling around the corner, thus completing the Carlsbad Crew.
