legendary dude who left fun-in-the-sun rock for cold alpine misery




but we need his dogged determination still against the snake-handling, speaking-in-tongues, fascist bomb-cellar-dwellers in those tard-centric threads

Tami, I had to look at that tea cozy on three expeditions that year.

Frackin' nightmare.

Strangely, while ferreting around in the dungeons of my computer for something else, I found two long-forgotten shots of Jim and added 'em to my pictures of Donini post, including this one:

I think it might be from the trip to the Kichatna Spires when we flew in on one half day of good weather, sat in the tent for 21 days and flew out on the next half day of good weather.

Read a boxfull of books and drank a boxfull of booze on that trip, so it wasn't a total waste, but we never tied a knot in anger.

Wow, no small amount of ass kissing, but not one story,

Perhaps, all the lurkers can't's spells soo gooddes, or Jim never did anything worthy of mention.

My God really not one story?

Holy shite, ferreting around the computer, I just found an entire article I wrote about that trip to the Kichatnas with Jim that I can't even remember writing, let alone publishing.

This is the most frightening thing I've experienced in years.

The above pic explains why...you might think it was the Tequila, but note the strange shades and color of the shirt.

Donini works for the MIB

They told us the stories but ...



You really think you just sat in the tent for 21 Days?....

let me tell you a story of an arrogant ass...he showed his arrogance regularly on a website, open to all. thought he was the sh#t.....and he was.....the stinky kind. the kind you wanted to bury deep in the forest coz it stank so effin bad. only the arrogant ass never did get it.

but thats ok.


one should never let arrogant asses (even though they stink) rain on your parade.

is that the story your lookin 4?

if you are anything in real life like you are on this web site then you are truly an as#@&%e.

Be it known I appreciate the Coloradan Jin Dornini.

He really tries.

At least he tries.

They say he's successful, but that's entirely personal. Who am we to judge? It's obvious he lacks true peerage. [Lord, Jim. I forgot Conrad.]

I know the answer, so that's just rhetorical.

"Does he delete interesting threads?" No, of course not. The Guiding on Everest Ethicality Question still looms.

"Are there interesting stories about him?" Not so's you'd know it! And stories of sitting in a tent waiting out a storm are useless with no pictures, too, remember. Thanks for that one, anyhow.

We must measure his head for science, too. The results would be interesting. We could send it to the Colorado Fish & Game. He's an animal, after all.

A man of true worth, well-deserving of this simple, twisted and threaded "Attaboy!"

Greg- Are you going to scan and post the Kichatnas article?

If not, what is the source and I will.

Steve, as far as I can recall, it never got published... I've done a little searching and can't find a clip, nor can I find an internet reference to it. I think I wrote it as a draft for NG Adventure but it didn't get picked up... I'm gonna see if I can tweak it and place it somewhere else... or else ePublish it as a kindle single or B&N Snap. It'd make a good Ascent or Alpinist piece, too.

It's pretty good on Jim.

It is, I just like hearing climbing stories, I know the guys bad ass, but what's wrong with some stories.

So many climbs from all over the world and not one story.
