Your comment seems a bit off color given the circumstances, Moose. But it's also easier to kick when they're down, I won't begrudge you that.

I was watching a short film by Cedar Wright on Vimeo where Honnold was talking about his foundation and ecological sustainability. He's a pretty earnest, well thought out kinda guy, and you can see a dry, self effacing humor underlining it all. Pretty refreshing.

I wish him luck in the mountains so that he can continue to blow our minds in whatever format. I saw somebody talking about him writing his memoirs? That would be a great read.

I fell for it again.....thinking this was a new thread at first! Anyway, I made an entry in my journal about the NYT thread that is here at ST. I said that I made some stupid posts about Alex and Clif Bars. Nuf said. Am looking forward to those memoirs he's working on! Climb on!

'Hubris:í the country of no old men...

quite the ironic quote embedded in the initial post.

pretty sure that writing a public letter to another human telling him/er what s/he is or isn't capable of, is one of the defining examples of hubris...

so more correctly it should have been:

'Hubris:' the country of at least one old man...

when i was soloing a lot there was always this feeling of invincibility. i could do no wrong. there was also the deep down acceptance that i really didn't care, life or death.


yeah, that's the problem....if you are going to solo then make sure if you fall you are killed instantly
