Climber chicks rarely have the curves that I would consider sexy.

Gotta agree with that one, Randisi.

Curvy=yummy


Edit:
Yeah, that's often been my experience, too, SLR.

Maybe times have changed... but back when I still had a full head of hair, most of the climber chicks were complete psycho nut cases.

You may have known you had a full head of hair, but you obviously didn't have a mirror, hahaha.

Ah, man, my climbing crushes... I guess they were too close and too unavailable to really bear mentioning. Oh, hell, I'll just settle with Chris Sharma for my hippy bro-dude crush and leave it at that.

I lost my cherry on my first climbing crush.

Lost up in the pines behind Muir Tree Campground.

It was one of those YV fairy tales come true. Give me chills. I thought about sending a letter to Penthouse Forums about it.


Both her and the campground are long gone.

but what is realistic about most crushes?
They are very real.

Definition of crush: a brief but intense infatuation for someone, especially someone unattainable.

Amanda Tarr (now Forest)

Le sigh.

I used to have a great picture of her in the same lime green helmet I would later get. She has those thick, nerd glasses on. Hawt. That was in the rec.climbing days. A guy named Karl Lew used to have some pictures of most of the people back then, but it's been down for a while.

Anyway, I e-mailed her back and forth for a while when she was single. Then...we played Quake II against each other online! She killed me in very humiliating ways and spoofed my communications somehow. I loved it.


Now we both have kids about the same age. Memories...

Definitely, sandstone. My last romantic climbing partner and I are still climbing. I just have to...hide the pain man. Oooooof. No, I'm OK. Belay on...

The Climbing Chica...nothing boosts the self-confidence like that partnership/crush of an opposite sex climbing partner. And nothing breaks the heart like when that patrnership/crush is done.

edit: fuking shoulder injury plus chica's new non-climbing, lead singer of Poison look-a-like mofo= big fukin frowny face.

I met my first gf, Donna, at Stoney Pt. She was a Bruin Mountaineer; I was attending Pierce J.C. She was learning with the club; I was bouldering with Hennek, McLean, Higgins, Roger Newell, maybe Lauria, etc. After a while of me not noticing her, she came up to me and said, "You are the most beautiful man I have ever seen. Would you like to go to a sorority dinner-dance with me?" I said that I would, so that began a year and a half of seeing her and going on trips together tho she was not really a climber. She liked the outdoor life tho. This is the only digital pic of her that I have, taken in Havasu Canyon.

The only real climbing gf or crush I've had was Mary Bomba. We met on a flight to Europe, and she came on some Bruin Mountaineer trips and learned to climb with me and was very good, and I trusted her implicitly to belay me on some good FAs.
