Du-ude.
Hey, I'm lost in the 'Neb now.
No shoes, no shirt, no chalkbag.

Which way is up?

Cool beebs, cuz I'm all amorphous and gooey-like.

No Lie, I put up the last dozen photos on the JT Dinosaur-Fest, scanning, chopping, loading: all mousework done with my right foot!

In the End, Dexterity Prevails.

Not Russian. Those would have been too light. That is a US Navy issue bunk son. They only weighed about 13lbs. Not too bad really. The ones from Curry were steel, and they were more like 30!!

edit: the 9mm adjusting system added a few lbs too! Cave man, cave....

So no commie iron on the captain then. Bummer, it would go with the hammer theme. Could that rig be taken down, or were the choices limited to hucking it or rapping with it?

Here's another shot of him...just before he ripped the pitch from the crux (still well above him in this photo) and nearly wiped out Lydia (aka the Pocket Russian) belaying at the base. Walked away.

Here's a very young Chris Lindner soloing the Woodson classic, Robbin's Crack (10a), spotted by his Dad and Rick Piggot...

hey mini, me and jvb were with rick and lydia when he fell and decked...but i don't remember anyone else being there! this was before the bolt got put in, and he fell pretty much off the last move onto tcu's stuffed into the wafer thin flake...POP..POP..POP..POP..POP..

i do remeber the dull thud he made when he hit, a few seconds of stunned silence from the three of us, i'm getting ready to run for an ambulance, then lydia yelps "FUKK!!", then rick slowly sits up, gives us a sheepish look, and says "well, that was pretty embarrasing..." this after a 40' groundfall.

that dude was stout.

he hurt his wrist, but that was about it. he fired a couple of laps on retropulsion as we were walking down the hill.

good times.

Hey BvB,

I woulda been the punk ass 18/19 year old kid up the hill with the camera...yeah that really WAS good times...i'll never forget the sound of that gear ripping or his meat slapping the deck. As I recall, he complained about having to swing a hammer the next day and that was about it. He was triple-x bad ass. I have pictures of him on the 2nd attempt too, same Metallica/red tights combo, but with bolt bag in tow, hanging off a hook, etc. Pretty much everything i ever learned about climbing was from that crew--Rick, Lydia, Donny, Dan. No wonder I was always scared shitless. I miss those days of tunneling through the brush with my clippers looking for the next great project--even though I couldn't tick 3/4 of the problems already established. hah.

let me know if you want to see other ancient shots...I'll scan and post as I'm able.
