Your first is always special, but who is right now is the real deal!

When I started climbing back in the late 70s in So Cal, there were so few women around it was kind of hard to find someone to crush on. There were probably only three or four women I can think of: Mari (who was older and was with Mo anyways), Moria (also older), Jan (whose last name I never knew and seemed connected) and Lynn, who was with Largo at the time and so was pretty much off limits. Not a lot there to work with?

Lot of crushes, just none of them on the climbing ladies, though Isabelle Patissier was totally hot. Maybe my wife qualifies, since she climbed before we married? I was 39 when I met her though. Can you still get a crush at age 39?

Fat Dad pretty much nailed it for us late 70's guys in So Cali

Jan might have been Jan Reynolds? She was the skier out of Vermont who did an ski expedition with Ned Gillette and Galen Rowell, then started into climbing. I met her summer of '81 as she started to really get after it..

I had a crush on Diana Hunter, Steve Wunsch's gf. She was tall, willowy, smart, and, boy, could she climb!

I had a crush on a beautiful woman who lived in Seattle. Improbably enough, she had a crush on me too. She climbed hard, ran marathons, and wanted me to go to Yosemite with her and her girlfriends for Thanksgiving.

We climbed, bouldered, talked about how to make the world a better place, and generally had a great time.

After two nights of four women farting in the tent and laughing helplessly about it, I was over it.

But, there was still this beautiful woman. We exchanged letters, visited, climbed, and developed a friendship that lasts to this day.

I guess tastes vary widely. Lidija was cool and all, but a hottie? Hmmm...

Swelly, I don't think Jan was Jan Reynolds. Petit, longer blond wavyish hair. Climbed a lot at the Beach, sometimes with Doug Z.

Well Lidija has a smile that warms the heart, a body as hard as a rock, and once you get to know her, a heart of Gold. Thats a HOTTIE in my book.

"Hot" in my book applies to the whole package. Women understand that about men which is damned lucky for the dudes on ST, myself included.

Ron, I get the whole Lidija thing. She was/is a pretty cool chick last time I checked. As anyone with half a brain knows, looks are only one (and sometimes small) part of the package.

I got to know her reasonably well after being a pitch behind her for 3 and a half days on Zodiac BITD. Saw her a little bit after that but then I got sucked into the whole college grad school thing.

Personally, I look around at how women are climbing nowadays and I grow a little envious. I wound up someplace good but back then climbing was almost like being in a monastery.

Olivia de Havilland.

Okay she doesn't climb, but if I was 90, and she was willing...

Climbed with Molly Higgins a couple of times. Nice gal. But no sparks there, just as well.

And then Barbara, from British Columbia. She worked at the Four Seasons and my credit card was okay. She was just a beginner, I took her up Peruvian Flake (Arches area). She couldn't clean the pro, so I free soloed up and got the gear, thought I'd impress her.

No way. Nothing became of it. Must be my breath or body odor. Or my personality.

Then there was Heather, also from BC, but we worked in a pub in Dublin. Spent a night together, in separate beds. I gave her my Shoenards, never got them back. The idea was to climb in Dalkey Quarry. I was 41 she was 21... would have never worked.
