surprised no one put "THE ONE UR CLYMBING WITH NOW LOLOLOL!!"

Cheeseballs must have the day off!

My most inspiring? Croft, probably. And Muir. And robbins. Anyone that changed the way we think things happen. That old hippie JStan. Barber. Gill. Hill. Clyde, of course. And lets not forget harding, pratt and frost. Kor, yup him too. Bachar, he's in the middle of this, sure. Sharma and Dave graham are pretty inspiring. Same with Kinder, in a different way (sorry joe). And honnold. Cedar and Renan keep me pretty psyched with Copp and cordes, of course. Not to mention Potter, ninov, ONiell, the el cap pirate, jose, aaronJ, DaveT, fred nichole and beckey, glen denny, galen rowell, john long, rickA, graham, tobin, wolfgang, harlin, house, twight, tenzing, hillary, rands, moon, jenerick, reardon, segal, caldwell, rodden, florine, hiryama, mccleod, hensel, bridwell, camps, dawson to name a few...
