For me it was the late 80's and the most beautiful climbing woman I had ever seen.

Completely taken.

Do mancrushes count? If so then I guess Lionel Terray was my man.

1975 maybe.
I was young (not in school yet - but hanging out with the official students) and a little green about the ways of the world.
But I had a tent, and "she" didn't.
Spent the day climbing with this beautiful and well endowed girl who insisted on climbing topless. Don't remember her name.
All I remember is I got so f*#king drunk that night around the campfire I missed out on what may have been my first time. lol
Or maybe only in my imagination.
I do remember climbing something dangerous and high, late at night in the dark with some other dozen people. Then puking my brains out from the top. Don't remember anything after that. ha

Janine Turner in Cliffhanger! Totally unrealistic, but what is realistic about most crushes? :-)



Well, this crush really started with Northern Exposure (the granddaddy of the current TV golden age, IMHO).

Wow, what a fashion statement Isabelle P. was making in that shot up above! The only thing missing is a little tyrolean cap with a feather.

Talk about the past coming back to haunt you!

My wife. I met her freshman week at college, and she had already done Robson with her dad and brothers.

I suppose prior to her, there was the daughter of my dad's climbing partner; we did some mountaineering with our dads. But she was slightly older than me and I didn't think I had much of a shot at getting to know her better. She also had a tendency to stop a little short of the summit, which I didn't understand.

I climbed with some french guys in the Valley for a week in the late 80s. One of them said "Isa" was his ex-girlfriend.
