That's Bill Price with Daryl. That would have been taken summer of '79 I think. It was when Bill scooped the second ascent of Sentry Box. Bill was here with Mike "Big Wally" Boris. It was a trip that was very inspirational to Squamish climbers. Bill returned the following year with Larry Zulim in early July but it rained for nearly 2 weeks steady and their plans were liquidated.
So I'm not exactly sure if this pic was taken on Bill's first or second visit. It might be the second when hijinx like this replaced climbing and good god we were all bored.
You were probably only out on weekends then Frostback, being only *just* outta high school. Hahaha.

That was a great story from Mike Sawyer.
Can you imagine Daryl as a mountain guide? He might make the clients carry the beer

One of the great aspects of climbing is the entertaining personalities involved. We have all met a bunch of characters in our time

That was a great story by Mike. Freaking out uptight guides=good fun.

No question there....climbing attracts iconoclasts and people who have trouble adjusting to societies norms.
It's also true that many on this forum encourage destructive behaviors that they don't do themselves but think it's cute when they see it in others. Most notably, excessive drinking and drinking at crags. So, have fun and encourage behavior that you later lament when you're posting your RIP's.

Agree with you Jim and I respect your input regarding this matter.

We were all wind-up toys to some degree or other with risk-taking warnings - particularly from our parents - kept out of sight in our back pocket. And, for some, that risk-taking included more than the climbing .

It's too bad you were reinstated.

Trying to read what you post is a pain in the ass, Garblicious one.

Daryl was ultimately a good guy on balance and you are a common blowhard hiding behind convoluted language, trying to make yourself look smart through being a weirdo.

Gnome deleted his post castigating people he feels he "escaped" from.

You need a doctor.

There's only one of me. Maybe you should consult your doctor about what self medications you've been hiding are right for you.

Wait, Rich Romano is Gnome? Seriously?

At any rate the garble is weird nonsense to be sure.


edit-still I have to ask. Reading back through the old threads sounds like Rich and Johnoker did a lot together with John singing the praises of his good friend and mentioning some accidents. Now he's ripping him a new one. What gives? Sorry I'm slow.

Back on topic.

Daryl's generousity set me on the right path through going aid climbing and free climbing with him. He was the kind of person you went climbing with where you learned how by observation and then caught up on your lead. He never held your hand. You were a partner and the expectation was 50 - 50, regardless of your experience. He took that into consideration but you were the last to know.

Jim my apologies I see how wrong this was, Im sincere and I think You know I am Not Romano.

ionlyski:, not mine to tell
the way I heard it,
They had big plans,
that didn't happen
John was where he said he would be. . .

I stepped on a nail after 4 hours of what i can still climb,I come in to find this, it hits,,,,, ,rains coming, . everything hurts, There might have been some mental break, there are pressure in everyone's life.

Gnome, I am reminded of Daryls' stock comment to climbing related drama: "too funny man, too funny". Those on the receiving end, may recall that this was meant in the context of "funny, funny" not funny haha.

I was lucky enough to hang out with Daryl a handful of times. I remember climbing at Fleming Beach and Sampson Narrows with Daryl, Frostback, and the Woz.

My first memory, though, was in downtown Victoria, at Island Alpine, after a Greg Child slide show on Gasherbrum IV. I think this was is 1987 or 88 and I was a 20yr old punk who had just landed a job at a climbing store and I felt like I had found my tribe.

After the slide show a squadron of us walked down to a peeler bar where we ordered jugs of cheap draught. I was definitely out of my element and felt insecure in my new Cobalt Synchilla Snap T amongst all the denim and leather. Daryl, of course, was in good form and held court over the rag tag group of climbers. It was difficult to hear the crazy stories of epics and parties over the crappy music and my eyes stung with the cigarette smoke.
A new performer emerged on stage and started to dance around the brass pole. I don’t remember if she was reluctant to remove her outfit as I had my back to her, but out of the blue Daryl yells ‘SHOW US YER TITS!’ I was stunned and embarrassed but realized that it was the time and place for this behaviour. The rest of the evening was a blur.

Daryl was larger than life and was kind and thoughtful under his rough exterior. I regret not attending his memorial on the Chief. RIP
