Here's to Ron & all the other dudes who put up lines in the Tahoe basin back in the day. Been really enjoying the place over the last several years. Thanks.

If Ron ran for office I'd vote for the other guy. If Ron was filling out his dance card of climbing partners, I'd cheat to get to the front of the line.

The guy is a walking encyclopedia of knowledge. Never boring, always appreciative.

Not only that but I can just tell that under the right circumstances, he could change his mind.

Which is a damn sight more than most people can say......

Thanks there folks! And Specialist,,Care to expound? Sounds like you used to climb but havent for a while? I still have some difficulty in deciphering yur messages. They appear to be unfinished works if you will..But i suppose we all are eh?


Nice Moosedrool! Im surprised i didnt break yur camera lol!



I have fun around this site. The jabs over controversial topics, or the trip reports from all you young stonemasters. Being ale to communicate here with some of the games big names is just a pure treasure. Meeting all the great folks from here that i have thus far is also a personal treasure . We are an eclectic group which contain all manner of views and ideas making this place the camp fire of choice. So the appreciation is RIGHTBACK ATCHA !!



edit: JD,, HIGH praise indeed! Back atcha sir!

Ron is the sh#t, a super cool cat. My gf Beth and I had a chance to meet Ron a few weeks ago while on a road trip through California. We made a slight detour to see Rons work and say Hi. Can't say enough good things about the man. Super cool, genuine, and laid back. Hope we can rope up and tackle Lone Pine Peak in the near future. Thanks for the hospitality while we were in town.

That is funny Locker. I also had a chance to meet Dean (who was also a very cool guy)in June Lake and he told me how much you guys looked alike. Guess he thought Ron was you at first when he met up with some STers in Reno and Ron showed up.

Pictures of Rons work are cool ,but seeing them in real life gives you...

Ron is one of the people who make this site entertaining...we can't all be the same--that would be boring!! Whatever else Ron is he isn't boring!!

Cheers and Good Luck with business or however else you can make a living and keep doing what you love Ron!!

his spell checking blows. though seems to be getting better.

is politics are all backwards and apparently facts don't really change his view.

He probably spews more than LEB

but he climbs.... and he isn't LEB (or is he?!?!?1111 ;-)

Cheers Ron...

Who else, other than Ron, would know of the explorations of obscure adventurers such as Alvin McClane. Ron, we gotta get back and complete his route this fall.

DirtClaud,, you and Beth are a very NICE COUPLE! We (sally-O max and myself) enjoyed your visit! Excellent people imo!

And Specialist,, Tell us more of those world records if you like! The only record i have is the stupidest aid route in the tahoe region lol!


I aint LEB.. Just another rump nugget..

Mtn lion, right back atcha..


Neebs God Bless you too Sweet Lady!

And Yes Rick, we need to put that Alvin Route to rest. Perhaps some spiritual help from him will ensue!

"his spell checking blows. though seems to be getting better."

That's all a calculated part of his ST persona. When the tone of the thread demands it, I've seen him pen perfectly spelled, punctuated & structured sentences.

The jig is up, Ron. Even a blind Republican squirrel knows how to write (or something like that).

we all strive for some fashion of a legacy- if we know it or not. Climbers are that way in large part. Charlie is such a legacy in climbing. One acquires good friends through good deeds and that is truly the mark and measure of a legacy-that will stand to eternity in the hearts and minds of the MANY.

Charlies eyes have been gifted in the vertical world, and that world has been gifted by Charlies presence. SALUTE to you sir.

From Ron Anderson to my husband Ian/Charlie Gill posted on November 14, 2012. I read this to him on the night before he passed away. Those were his last smiles here on this earth. Ron Anderson, you are #1 in my books. Always will be!
Cheers!!
