He's not just a Dick who posts while drunk! Heh.
I've known Scott for a long time. His behavior on the forum can be … Passionate, opinionated, ... Gruff.

Check out this 50 min. stunt industry podcast interview to see him at his best.

Nothing revelatory here: just a candid talk with Coz.
Definitely On Topic … climbing related for the most part.
I'd say he's actually matured into a fine young man!

Way to go Scott, well done. A very down to earth piece.

Cool interview, really enjoyed it. ...good job to the interviewers as well... they seemed a bit more informed on the subject than some, they asked good questions...

I remember somebody on here was still PISSED about the Muir drilling debacle, but how can you fault being completely sold-out to hard rock climbing? His list of FAs is more than enough bonafides.

Not sure, if I should feel faltered or insulted? LOL.

Ha!
Certainly no faltering going on here as your delivery was rocksolid and the pacing was crisp. Structured to be equally informative to the layman and the aficionado. Yes, basically a walk through your resume; I see that now. It's a good listen.

This guy is awesome. One of the most generous guys that I've met in a long time. Turns out he's a badass climber as well.

Damn.

Bump for the Coz!
Listen to his interview and put a voice to a face. Here's the pictures to go with:

Scott you sounded like a nice guy on the radio. If you were nervous it wasn't obvious. If I do an interview I am usually nervous until it starts, then I relax and am in my element. Sort of like Dean Potter.

Tarbuster showing Kate how big Coz's balls are.



Kate looks, and thinks, "are they really that big ...... ?"

If you haven't listened to this radio interview, do so, as journalists rarely get the climbing thing so right and it is refreshing to see Cosgrove handle it so well overall.

In service of showcasing some of Scott's writing mentioned in the interview:
Coz Muir Wall/Shaft Article Climbing Magazine, May 1, 1998

I was in the valley in 93-94 and remember the drilling incident. Also probably jugged your lines up to mammoth a couple times.
