Oh, sorry.



(Shocked the sh!t out of you for a sec though, huh?) :)


Edit to add: Actually, eeyonkee, imo, you're one of the few in fifty or one hundred who might enjoy this podcast with Weinstein, particularly the last 20 minutes, where it gets esp insightful and bang-on (apropos to the times).

Sorry for the two-post thread drift, I'll stop now.

If I were to bet on whether Sam Harris would have a guest on his podcast with the same name as a famous (deceased) Canadian climber -- I'd have lost, for sure.

Olaf D. Mitchell and I knew Eric quite well in Denver in 1976-77 while I was managing a collective menagerie apartment house known to its residents as the "Yellow Submarine" out by Washington Park right next door to a rock n' roll booking agency/record store. The Mafia used to come by once a week in a lime green Cadillac to shake down the local businesses for a payoff.

It was that kind of a 'hood' for sure. Will always remember Crazy Mary, Bill the Catman, John Bad, Karen Hegal (great, great granddaughter of the German philosopher) and Eric there right in the middle of all the madness.

Great times! Where are all those super-heroes today? Hope a few of them outlasted the late, great Swine-stein!

Ha! "swinestein," a name Darryl used on Eric more than a few times. They seemed like unlikely climbing partners, especially on a wall, but they ticked off some great ascents including the PO 2nd.

Thanks for the photo Greg, got more like it? Anders?

Bruce, were you in the Boulder house with Eric and Charlie F.?

Wow! That's a GREAT picture. That seemingly benign image speaks volumes. Look at Eric's hands and eyes. Hatton's and Carrigan's too. Everyone looks like they're shell-shocked. Could be they're massively impaired but they have a look of quiet desperation. I'd love to see some more pics from that climb. Those guys were pretty special and I really hate the fact that they're not around anymore. Too many friends have passed.....

Greg's shot of Greg, by Greg? I am confused but then it doesn't take much these days.

I'm with you Don, I'd love to see more shots of the ascent, but if I only got to see one that photo says it all. I really miss both of them, they left us way too young. BTW- I think you and I did Vanishing Point on Darryl's "40 beer" day........and he was still relatively coherent. Eric was only good for 2 or 3, "declare lightweight!'
