CG got sandbagged good on that one.

sandbagged? hardly. shut down? yes.

although CG was a magnificent climber. his 2nd ascent, on-sight, solo, of krystal klyr speaks for itself.

woodson is mutant. lots of top-notch climbers have problems there. says more about the area then the climbers.

Yeah I actually was trying to give him some beta and he told me to pretty much F-off...Before that he'd kinda been my friend...Go figure? That contest was rigged from the start anywho so the rest of us just took the four way tie for second place and boycotted the rest of the contest...

Don't know if you've already seen this one of you at the '86 Woodson contest Mike. Name the other people if you can...

You got that right, Michael. I covered the 86 contest for Rock & Ice Magazine, and 2 days before the contest, event organizers Rick Piggot and Carmel Schimmel were taking Ron Kauk on a tour of high value problems that were used in the contest.

Thats not to say Kauk couldnt have won it anyway. Rick and Carmel were not trying to stack the deck, they were showing off some of Ricks recent routes, but never should have taken Kauk to climbs that were going to be in the competition. Kauk was pretty much unstoppable at the time.

Best time of my life, cruising up the hill (illegally) in BVB's parents cruiser and pulling over to stop at our fave solo's...That's why this pic, probably taken by Bob reminds me of those times...


PS: I do look apprehensive in that shot Gary...But memory fails me as to who I could've been talking too...It's been some time...

Hey Mike, did you find any pics of us and Micky on the LA. I lost all my old photos in the punk wars of the 80's. I remember seeing one maybe of us with our punk sunglasses on.
