AKA the sledgehammering video?

Sorry I have not been watching and don't want to read through that whole thread to see if there is a mention of it, can someone help me out? Kinda curious what his public reaction is going to be, aren't you?

Darn you Matt. You shun home for months, then materialize and present yourself out of the blue...expecting a Cliffs Notes report on the chiseling calamity...

...well sorry mister! You're going to be required to read the thread.


Or maybe you can read Jon Krakauer's upcoming book, Under the Banner of Chipping: A story of Violent Rock Modeling. (I wouldn't expect great accuracy or focus...but Mr Krakauer knows sensationalism sells books)




This I can tell you: Ivan's mother tears up whenever her son's name is mentioned...and the cliffs themselves are completely shattered over what he has become...

I don't think anyone said they "want him to make a comment." Matt said he was "kinda curious." I am too... I'm curious if he has more remorse or indignation or simply doesn't give a fuk. Not that it matters, just curious. I'm also curious if Ondra gets any bitches.

Really,, any climber that steps into the light should just paint a target on his backside.. Climbers in general are teriibly opinionated, and snarky at the drop of a hat.


And to think a chip is worse than 17,000 bolts hanging off the ORG walls.

Funny standards we have sometimes.

This is Ivan's big chance to be famous. Either become the founder of modern day chipping, or beg forgiveness for his sins. Crawling and hiding under a rock is just missing an opportunity.

Yeah it's hard to tell what that other thread is even about anymore, I was under the impression Donald P was writing the chipping guide? Not krakauer? Very confusing, I'll try to pay more attention.

Not a lot of craftsmanship in evidence in that chipping video -- he looked like Bam-Bam on crack -- but a small amount of this stuff went on at Woodson in the 80's. And as has been pointed out, in Josh and the valley as well. Today it's mostly forgotten and rarely, if ever mentioned.

Funny how the passage of time cools the jets and it all just fades away. In addition to the brutal hack job that seems to be going on (for what looks to be a chossfest problem, no less) the individual in question has been a pathological spotlight seeker at times and so the commentary on this will be al the more biting and sarcastic. It all adds up to a run-of-the-mill slagfest -- one we'll all have forgetten in a few months. I'm not an apoligist, mind you. I was physically cringing when I saw that vid -- thinking to myself -- WHAT THE F*#K?!! Might as well have used a jackhammer.

Personally, I think that crap that Ken Nichols has pulled in that part of the country is far more odious and loathsome.

He should be able to boulder his way out from under that rock he's hiding under, right? Even without a sledge.

Have I missed something? Besides the last train and besides life.

So is it a matter of "pull up the anchor and Chips Away?"

I guess I'll have to watch the video, just out of curiosity. The only thing I have ever chipped is my tooth.

Or you can read the Book of Mormon, which is WAY more accurate. You even get your own planet!

No, Ivan hasn't responded. See: Sociopathic Behavior.

You won't get that redemption from him likely, no more than Lance fessed when 'caught'. If your ego is big enough to see you this far, it'll see you to the grave.
