I must have been drunk when I posted above. How could have I forgotten Klaus?

He is #1 in my book!

From Clint Cummins in the thread:



Here's a related question - number of FAs/FFAs on El Cap, not counting base routes, but counting some routes/variations which are not independent the whole way. Here's a list of folks with more than 3 El Cap FAs/FFAs (from when this question came up on March 17):

5 John Barbella
5 Dale Bard
4 Steve Bosque
10 Jim Bridwell
5 Hugh Burton
5 Tommy Caldwell
4 Yvon Chouinard
4 Charles Cole
4 Jose Luis Gallego
6 Steve Gerberding
6 Steve Grossman
6 Alex Huber
4 Thomas Huber
7 Eric Kohl
8 Charlie Porter
4 Bill Price

I think that Eric Kohl probably has the most V/VI FAs, and Bridwell has quite a few as well.

Whoah, Dingus - your post was brilliant! Much appreciated, must have taken hours. Winnebagos indeed.

You need to add E and his remarkable likeness [at least above the waist] to John Curtis Holmes.

And what of Holly and Kate??

Um, we're down. At least, I think we're down. The ground is flat, and it's more than three feet wide for a change. I am remembering how to walk again. The first few minutes on the ground you're stumbling around like a drunken fool, it's been so long since you walked. [Knott that we were knott drunken fools at times on the wall]

Kate's Yosemite nickname is Batgirl, so named for our first route together - the Ranch - when she climbed a proud and hard pitch with tons of bathook holes. Scary stuff, Count Floyd. Look up Batgirl and Yvonne Craig. I emailed back and forth with Yvonne a few times - nice lady. She was also the hot green chick in the original Star Trek series. Captain Kirk - the real Hoser Shatner, not the poseur Bland - probably shagged her. Or at least, I hope he did!

And Holly has retired to Arizona where the weather is clean and dry to raise Swiss Mountain Dogs, but I believe she has climbed more different El Cap routes than any other woman.

Kate must be close behind, and I am certain no woman has led more hard pitches than Kate has.

So there are a few more images you can work with!

Now if our Pirate would quit walking the plank and jumping in over such shallow water, he might actually be up on the wall instead of convalescing.

Again.
