my devotion to and adoration of this
pastime ignited when i sent
mr. natural in yosemite.

i took a long fall at the crux,
the longest fall i'd yet taken (like 25')

then i got back on and sent it
with new knowledge of sequence.

it was the first route
that i had over-aimed my ambition,
and subsequently crushed it.

i've stumbled along the stone paths happily,
ever sense.

I had the hots for a gorgeous chick with curly brown hair and blue eyes who worked at Western Mountaineering in San Jose. I think her name was Carol English.

Totally unrealistic, but what is realistic about most crushes? :-)

Exactly!

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.

They are very real.

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