I'll stick to 5:

"The Doctor"- David Bloom
"Nature"- Doug Lafarge
"That's Papa Joto to you Son"- Fred Berman
"The Albatross"- Dave Bengsten
and Ib Toor (my original climbing partner)

That's quite the list there bvb, quite the list . . .

We gotta get out sometime, I'm sure I'd be impressed ;-)

James Crump, my best man who taught me everything. I spent my Sophmore, Junior and Senior Springbreaks with that guy at Hueco Tanks back when NOBODY new about that place.

Bobbi Bensman, really great climbing comps and Rifle trips.

Derek Hersey, ended up doing the 2nd ascent of Ariana on the Diamond with my man, fuking insane good time.

Calvin Hiser, I drug him acroos the Southwest, drug him up the B/Y and then dropped the hammer in Emeryville. Really badass roadtrip.

Kevin Gallagher, belayer on my very scariest routes. He also married my Wife and I.

I suppose, to be perfectly honest here, I should include my ex-wife Jocelyn. During the 24 years that it was good, it was really good. She was/is a very special lady.

Dan Martinez - He was climbing with me on his 60th birthday. I only out-climb him because I lack any sensible fear. He is in much better shape than me and I'm under 50.
