The article went on to say how Bob, psyching up to repeat Squat after 20 odd years weaned himself off the anti-psychotics so he'd be maximally aggro the day of the climb!
Edit: I wouldn't have menyioned any of that, but it was in the mag for all to read.

If you see the reel rock bit, Brad takes a huge whipper out of squat, almost hitting the ground. They must have told him not to place pro, or clip the bolts. Total theatre, but it makes a good action sequence!

I ran into him a bunch of times in Vedauwoo summer of 2011, only there for Vedauwoo sushi fest this year. No Bob that week. But dingus had been interacting with him I think.

I heard that he climbed a route that Noel and I put up in the South Platte and liked it.

The big roof under the Cynical Pinnacle Olaf? That thing made me puke warm beer from the night before when I hit the lip. I wish i could think of the name of it. Absolutely the type of route I tend to avoid. I think Bob likely climbed it with either or both Grossman and Lubben. Drop an email sometime so we can catch up.

Bob S., In reference to the above post by Eeeonkee I didn't say anything of the sort. This is a cowardly cowardly thing to do as well as very juvenial and I can't explain his actions. I kinda wish I had thought of it. By the way I did hear someone, I don't remember who, say that Eeeonkee is a big pussy (unlike you and me) but I can't remember who. "Eeeonkee is a big pussy and you can tell him I said that. My name is Bob S." Yes, now I'm starting to remember.

Hmm makes my roadtrips with Bob, trips to Jackson, trips beyond the greenie border,the Yosemite 5.10a ow tour, and subsequent valley .10c ow tour, (both mid- late 70's) etc sound tame!


....hmmm, I seem to remember a story about a roadtrip a guy took in a "Mustang painted international orange that passed everything but gas stations"....
