The Sheep Buggerers

Baa baa baa
The sheep buggerers
Were on patrol
Who might they find?
We could not know
No cliff was safe
In J Tree land
What fate might bring
Or was at hand

Baa baa baa
Was what they sang
The Fish and Manx
And all their gang
God only knew
What happened to them
What their victims said
Was heinously grim

Baa baa baa
From round the bend
I kept my space
And my rear end
Guessing all to well
How things might go
What capture meant
Or would portend

Baa baa sheep buggers
Yes it's true
The sheep buggerers
Will gun for you
You'd better wise up
And play it cool
Keep your distance
Don't be a fool

Baa baa baa
On one fine day
There climbed some dudes
On a route that day
A top rope came
And I tied in
To climb to where
The crux began

Baa baa baa
Came from above
The cry for aberrant
bestial love
I passed the crux
And untied there
With two good jams
And a vacant stare

Baa baa baa
They cried again
That I might die there
Was no sin
The rope was gone
As nightfall came
I soloed up
And saved my name

Baa baa sheep buggers
Come for you
It won't bode well
When they catch you
You'll lose your pride
And virginity too
When they latch on
From behind to you

Baa baa baa
In distance yon
The buggerers
They now had gone
I'd crapped my pants
If truth be told
The price for pride
Out in the cold

Baa baa baa
Was what they sang
The Fish and Manx
And all their gang
And God knows what
They'll do to you
It won't be nice
That's all I'm saying

Yeah, them Buggerers™™ were out there! Craig Fry, their fearless leader, still posts here in the politarded threads. Quite a band of misfits he lorded over.

Craig created this chart a while back to show the lineage:

Lots of lore here:

http://www.supertopo.com/climbing/thread.php?topic_id=211354&msg=1987668#msg1987668

Another weird twist is all the Sheep Buggerers, including their leader Craig Fry, were members of the Young Republicans based out of Pacoima, Ca. The chapter was eventually folded when the Buggerers revolted against their right wing leader and became mostly left leaning sackless slab climbers of no real note.


From another thread, some additions:

The Simpleton
Doogan the Tin Man

Dick Cilley, second in command to Craig

Doug the Slug Zeisner (2nd strongest man in the world)

Illustrious list. I remember Dr. F regaling me with stories of Mr. Long's prowess, all the more impressive coming from a guy with Craig's level of fitness.

The Sheepbuggar Flow Chart was created by Russ
But it's completely accurate

Russ was/is the Sheepbuggar historian
Thank goodness someone remembers those great dayz with an eye for detail

don't remember the sackless slab climber part, you may have confused me with my brother, he loves those slabs

We need to organize a Josh sheepbuggar reunion

Hey there say there, sorry Mr Fry if I left you out of my poem.
I can write you back in as the Dark Overherder or Baaad Sheep Number One if you'd like...
My memories of those days are foggy at best, but still my dreams are haunted by the bleats of horror echoing through the JT Wonderland of Rocks in my head from BITD.

Yep, the lists seen above are bogus.

I myself am a proud buggerer and do not appear on either list.

Russell WTF??




At one point I was the patriarch of a proud household in SD with Freriks, Mooney, the Manx and Mike Casper in residence.







OK, maybe Jonny was the patriarch.

BITD Maria C. took me on one of my first climbs in JTree, Double Cross.
Besides being terrified of heights, I was pretty much overwhelmed by the whole climbing scene, hanging with such great climbers.

As we made our way up the climb, topping out were two young guys, one with long hair and a headband. I thought it odd that they were bleating like sheep and asked Maria about it, I couldn't believe this was a common practice. "Oh, it's nothing, they're just having fun."

Well, OK, to tell the truth it kinda fit the whole scene back then.

Wow. Sounds like a rare sighting of the Sheep Buggerers' patron saint and defiant guiding light, Bud Scrimshaw.
We just knew her as Dorothy.

And let me tell you what,
The Buggerers totally raised the hackles of the nearby Stonemasters:





... Not because they were better climbers, no.
But because they were LOUDER, and had lots more fun.

And darn it, people LIKED them.
