Lynn Hill for sure. From the first time I saw her in the Gunks, preparing for my first 10a toprope and she walks up and asks if I mind if she could go. Are you kidding, I could have watched all day but she soloed it in about 30 seconds.

Mary Jo from the local shop (Appalation Outdoors). I was the punk kid, she was a goddess. Don't know what ever became of her. I still remember climbing a (then) test-piece that her boyfriend couldn't do. Ah to be young and foolish...

I guess I used enough space. Talk about a crush? It was a 42 year love story.

Great story, andpartner. Thanks for the pictures and congrats on finding early what many of us search our whole lives for. You are a lucky man - it took me a lot longer, but patience has it's rewards when one is less lucky than you.

I had it all, and now it's gone. Hard to know where to go now. This is a great thead though! So cool to see so many "crushes" that have stood the test of time. Aren't we all so lucky???!!

Ah, the Gunks. Driving through the night in the woods of western Connecticut toward the promise of a bright tomorrow. Those were the days...
