I wonder if La Sportiva is pissed that they didn't get a photo credit for the Solutions.

That's pretty bad. That first image is especially porny.
Alex, just say "no."

Transcending climbing idolatry to become a mainstream superstar. Will that peak when there's a superbowl commercial featuring his climbing, a candid short interview, followed by a plug for Sierra Nevada Pale Ale? Actually, life insurance would probably be a more likely sector. I can see the close-up death-defying scene with zoom out that transitions to the Prudential logo.

It is what it is. He looks good, climbs hard, and, I'm assuming, living his dreams and paying the bills. All American success story if you ask me.

For a climber-superstar, he has an especially pleasant personality. That's why we want him to stay alive. In the meantime, let him make some cash while the sun is still shining

Iggy Pop is good, but I saw him more as St Sebastian. He looks a bit tormented. Like he's waiting for the piercing arrow that is Forum commentary.

Nothing wrong with selling a little cheese. He is a good guy. Hope he can bank a little following his dreams. Inspiration is a valuable trade commodity. Legitimately so.

Those photos taken at Cat Rock in Central Park.

Specifically Cat's Corner V0- (although he is climbing it backwards with his pants falling off.) And it's like one of the best boulders in Central Park.


Will the pants-falling-off thing become a trend in sport climbers next? Stay tuned.


Hope he got some money and a good girlfriend outta this gig.

I think it was Yogi Berra who said, "The future just ain't what it used to be." When we let money become involved with anything, whatever that thing is, it becomes subject to commercial pressures. I got forced into a photo article once but I took no money. I agreed to do it under the condition that there could be no spectacular photos. There were none.

It is nice to get money for nothing. But nothing usually turns into something.

On another subject, I think every man really needs to have a daughter.

Hope he got some money and a good girlfriend outta this gig.

When you have a daughter the opposite sex becomes not quite so opposite. No longer a commodity. In fact your thoughts do indeed gravitate towards 12 gauge shot guns and double ought buck shot.

Anything that's good for Alex I'm good with... and I think his annual compensation isn't 100th of what it should be. On the other hand, I do think if I was gay I would like those pictures better. haha
