Perspectives we don't see often here, Paul Brennan. Those roofs can be as big as they wanna be as long as they stay up there.


Our first meeting was sorta pre-arranged, Big Mike. At least it was pre-announced. Looking forward to the next time!

I'm still waiting for the day when I come across a climber outdoors who I only know through ST.


We met that way too Andy! I recognized u from a photo I saw of u on here!



Killer photos Paul!

a highly evolved form of cheating that masquerades as real climbing:


So funny, thanks for the honesty- although I'm sure some here(kidcormier/brownie/fishboy/chief) would probably disagree :-)

David you dick!! Haha. Kiddin'. Wouldn't have been much good trying to visit me here this past weekend. I work all day Saturday and Sunday was stupid-busy with this piece for Katie and Phil is sick and, oh, yeah, Isaac was over as well. He deployed yesterday for several months. Glad Ian is climbing. What's with you guys not just breaking bones but SHATTERING them?

Yuck.

Don't get me wrong, I love wall climbing. Its pretty much all I did last year. How can you not love a form of climbing where you can be slow, weak, lazy, and still get kudos? And better still, be able to do it on your own, so you don't have to listen to partners complaining about you being slow, weak and lazy.

I love aid cheating, and it never pays to take yourself seriously.

It's a trait that runs in the family. I think the medical geneticists call it "stupidity."

aid climbing is cool because you can drink whiskey and smoke cigs whilst making steady upward progress. That being said, I'm pretty broke at the moment so I'll be sticking to the free variety for the time being..

For me it was likable, the second pitch was unusual.


edit: That kneebar picture from Squeamishness makes me wonder if you would find the second pitch of Straight Outta Squampton that different.

Heard you were from Seattle and wondered if you were a Supertopan, but as a devout lurker, I left it at that!

You should have spoken up! Why not? I guess there are a couple of a-holes who post on ST, but the remaining 99.99% are wonderful people. Doesn't matter if they're Famous Climbers™, or gumbies from Gumbieville, they're probably going to be happy to meet you. And who knows where that might lead?

Some of my best friends are folks I bumped into at the crags. If I hadn't spoken up, I'd be a lot poorer for it.

So, next time you spot that old guy with the gray beard, say hello.

Do I still count as a hoser? Or do you think of me as just another stoopid American now?

If you come over for a beer on Monday, I'll give you my contact info.

Ryan - Squampton is excellent! I'm not sure how "scruffy" it is or not these days.
there is an alternate 2nd half that may be more appealing as it is recently re- scrubbed - this is called "Babes in Kai Land". It is a excellent sustained hand and finger crack to the top.

Alternately go straight left (11b or so) to a similar hands and fingers sustained crack for the original finish.

Squeamishness is very good eh?

Thanks Bruce, squeamishness was great for sure. I'm pretty stoked on that whole area over there. Lots of steep stuff on nice rock. U need something bigger than a blue camalot for Squampton?

Even Steven?

Dave I though I first met Drew (Oplopanax horridus) on ST. Then looking at an old video I took in 2000 while climbing Needle peak I realized I had crossed paths with him already without knowing his identity. There he was on the video racing past us on one of his annual VOC outings.
