Rock climbing. No thanks! Mission Cliffs was fairly new when this writer went and tried it; the place still stands and is a destination for wall climbers worldwide. Not me tho.

pretty cool-looking, there, Mission Cliffs

This is the 46th entry in my “twenty years ago this week” project from when I was a nightlife columnist at the Bay Guardian, once the country’s largest family-owned weekly newspaper. These “Dilettante” clips, compiled on my portfolio page, create a serial portrait of San Francisco culture at the turn of the century (1997-2001).
