Topic Author's Original Post - Sep 12, 2014 - 11:48am PT
Reading a few threads on Facebook today, there was an article on the new Reel Rock film, Valley Uprising, where a comment was made about the same old stories being rehashed (actually in a google search context). Coz commented how the Yosemite 80's are a forgotten era.

Some of the stories and characters have been told--bits and bites providing some insight on the complex personality of Walt Shipley for example, or the raw wildness of Tucker Tech. But the issue in general is that there's been no historian for the era. For up to the 70's, Roper covers with literacy genius the historical aspects, and Long expertly recounts key episodes which provide insight on the atmosphere. Then the 90's brought the MTV and Internet era, so much has been captured for perpetuity there. But for the 80's the essence hasn't been fully exposed.

When I think of that time, I think of all the colourful, high energy personalities. To name a few:
Don Reid
Grant Hiskes
Russ Walling
John Yablonski
Mike Lechlinksi
Al Swanson
Steve Schneider
Mike Lechlinski
Rick Cashner
Mike Corbett
Steve Bosque
Tory Johnson
Dan McDivett
Sue Bonovich
Tracy Dorton
Scott Cosgrove
Kurtz Smith
Jo Whitford
Bill Russell
Rick Albushcat
Michael J Paul
Roland Arsons
Steve Gerberding
Dean Fidelman (almost unique in his notion to take some pictures)
Dave Schultz
Werner Braun


Missing a lot, these are just off the top of my head. But for each of these characters, there's a worthy story.

Mike O'Donnell writes, "I was there...Does it matter?" That almost explains the era best--we were all just doing wild things, with no notion of GoPro, live blogging, mag articles, or any other sharing of episodes outside our circle. And for the most part it's kind of stayed that way-the 60's and 70's were a historical time, and the 90's the start of the new era of every exploit recorded for mass media. The 80's era was very inward in this regard.

But I reckon if there were a few bits from each of the characters of the era, a fleshing out of the true essence of the 80's might be exposed.

I'll come back as more folks on the list come to mind--every one triggers a new story that fleets by--in the meantime, help me flesh out the list above...

Kind of two themes here--one is the personalities, the other is actually a historical context, as the modern era has been influenced by developments in the 80's.

The list of people who climbed something first, only tells a fraction of the story. I think any historical rendering that hints of myth creation, as is being noted in discussions about the Valley Uprising film, would be disingenuous to the era.

The real story lies outside the historical documentation of fist ascents, I reckon, i.e. The myriad of people who aren't on Ed's list above. But lots of good reminders there, thanks.

Btw, on another note some people correlate 80's with spandex. No way, Spandex marks the beginning of the current era, more about the show. They came in around 1988, late 80's. The real "80's" are pre-spandex.

We wore white painter's pants (which were never white again).

yes, there's lots of folks I missed, like Leavitt and Slater. Did I put Steve Sutton on there? He was having a strong Yosemite revival, but more in the later 80's. Hugh Burton even showed up for a bit in the 80's. Charles Cole and Steve Grossman. Of course Bachar and Kauk--there's lots of legends leading to myths. But again, I reckon the real story is more nuanced than those that have been already told--I'm thinking of so many in my head, but a tellable "story" hasn't yet emerged; what's interesting to me is that this seems the same for a lot of other folks from whom the era was a highlight of intensity and passion.

But it's not about the bravado and the stars--in addition to the unnamed boulderers above (I remember them, but not their names!), guys like Walleye and Harpole have a strong place in the essence of the 80's, I reckon.

I think that the crowd at Joshua Tree, the place where many of us migrated for some of the winter months, has also a place in the 80's story.

ps--has anyone read Paul Pritchard's Deep Play? Sure, there's some myth creation there with tales of major climbs, but the mastery of that book is that he captured the core atmosphere of the British 80's--and not just the significant climbing events, which is almost the minor story.

Deep Play was a great read, I loved that book!

I always enjoyed hanging out with Grant and Bill. Both large personalities in what I remember of my brief time spent in the valley. Of course this was way after the 80s and they both were still there. Probably still are!?!?

So much of the Yosemite 80's was colored by the tensions between the traditions of wilderness, wildness (ground-up, clean climbing, risk), raucousness, breaking into new standards (rap bolting, rehearsal), commercialization (competitions, gyms, sponsorship) and popularization. All that dissonance that came with the transitionary nature of the time were in the essence of our generation...outside climbing we were in the middle of the Reagan-Bush era that brought a political swing to the right...Macs and PCs were taking root...etc. And it was all pretty wild. There were some pretty strong currents that shaped our generation as we struggled with a whole bunch of change. There was an adventure, argument beer and joint for all in the mix.

Looking at where we are now it always reminds me that change is constant and the tensions timeless. I find myself questioning where we ended up...alas. But its all good and what better place to be living through the currents of change from yesterday and today than Yosemite...the heart of California.

Banny Root's name was not Banny Root?

Some of those folks on John's list are hanging around the parking store at Tmds many mornings. Stories are told pretty regularly.

LOL Klaus

You got way more for sure but that list is for the 80's only I think?

Anyways lol Tuckers 132

He asked me once to go on one of those and it's a 50 foot pile of sh!t that goes nowhere.

I start laughing at what he wants to climb.

He'll do anything.

Too funny ......

I always thought the return of Layton Kor to the Valley in 1988 to climb El Cap was pretty cool.

I always thought Mikey Waugh was one that flew under the radar and was just as talented or more so than many of his peers and he still cranks hard today. Maybe he didn't do a ton in the Valley but he still deserves a shout out.

Funny things about the 80's that the change was not coming from big three, Yosemite, Boulder or the Gunks, but from little backwater areas like Smith Rock and Shelf Rd to name a few.

Infighting and down right hatred prevails in the big three.

Still the Valley had many great climbers and great routes in the 80's that seem to get overshadowed by the 70's.

Just my opinion. :-)

Yeah .....

I was a Smith Rocks and watch Alan Watts rap down and drill a plumb line of bolts straight down that Monkey face for a new route.

Then they tried to climb it and a lot of those bolts had to be moved to where they really need to be placed.

Holes everywhere.

I said is this hows its done?

Yes this how we do it .... lol

Holy sh!t ...... hahaha
