(visited by Sam Gallucci and Dan Hilley)

22-Jun-2003 -- I was visiting my friend Dan in LA. I was able to convince him to try a quick confluence. We took the 60 to 7th, turned left at Orange Grove and right on Avocado Terrace, right on Oak Canyon. We found a turn-about near the intersection with Athel. We parked. I fired up the GPS and going on what Uwe described we started up the small canyon side toward the ridge. I think we started up too far up the canyon. The vegetation was thick and some sort of prickly plant was giving me an allergic rash. We got up roughly to the same level as the confluence but going across to it would have been dangerous because we could not see the ground for the plants. Thinking back, we should have taken the more barren side closer to the cliffside. But by now we were done with the vegetation thing and neither one of us had pants. So I took a reading at the base of the small cliff abutting Athel. The first picture is actually of the ridge upon which the confluence resides. A small part of that cliffside is visible on the bottom of the picture. I also included a small map of the climb we did (in red dashed line).
