"He then hiked down, drove 15 minutes to Half Dome and scaled that before lunchtime."

What a doll and so bright too. Here is the odd Esquire image, de-toxed somewhat. It was not easy though.



He looks like the result of ten thousand generations of Beni Gesserit breeding doesn't he. both male and female limbers at his level have supernatural bodies---have to! Plus unsurprisingly he seems to be even more astounding as he gains in years....

Here is an great offhand natural sort of shot without modeling, lighting, posing, etc:

My wife says it looks like Arnold Schwarzenegger mated with Barack Obama.

I guess she means one's muscles and the other's ears.

While Bmacd seems a bit over zealous in his delivery, none the less i do think it to be a bit "eeeesh" myself- having come from a much more "natural" generation of crusty ol farts.

It struck me as being oddly beyond "metro"..nttawwt..but ODD for a climber "shot" ...

















ps,, does NOTHING in my bank fyi....

Big ears.

What do you suppose that means?

All sh*t aside I say congrats to the guy. Parlaying success in climbing into making a splash in the mainstream is pretty rare. My bs detector tells me someone is just jealous, that or some brilliant sarcasm went over all our heads.
