kennyt,

If you think you're crafty by editing your lame comment after the fact you're not. Your original post was this-
I thought the second ascent didn't count unless it was done by a twelve year old girl??
You went back to edit it afterwards.

Your comment stems from the mindset that somehow big rad "Trad Climbers" (whatever the term even f*#king means) are really more skilled than "sport" climbers (again, whatever that term means) because they/you place your own gear and get gobies on the back of your hands. What a joke.

News flash, anybody that climbs 5.14, twelve years old or not, is an extremely fit and honed athlete and could probably on sight any of that crap in Woodford's without ever having placed gear before.

BTW, Iv'e been to Woodford's one time. That was twenty four years ago so it wasn't me or my friends out there. In my opinion, for the most part, the place is a hyped up, out of the way turd pile being propped by windbags like you.

""And like I said you may see Chris in the Valley sooner than later. It should be obvious what project he will be on."

Are you hinting he's going to be joining Tommy on the Dawn Wall project this autumn? Oh man, that would be amazing for those two to pair up and finally get that thing.

Very glad to see him send La Dura Dura. There is a yin and yang about the two that played out nicely in the film. I think both are fantastic!

Take a breather there. I doubt Kenny meant what you think he meant. He just likes to joke. And there are a number of young girls crushing hard climbs.

Kp,please see johns comment,and who brought up woodfords? and you have know idea where my comment stems from.

Woodfords is what it is. it's fun and it's in my backyard that's the hype for me. sorry it doesn't meet your standards isn't it cool that you never have to go there again?

You went back to edit it afterwards.

that's usually how it works. my orig. comment was meant as a joke I didn't think anyone was thick enough to see it as a stab at Sharma/sport climbing. I was wrong.

Geeze, Ariza, did you even think that Kenny has done plenty of sport development and is probably joking around? Pissing on some crag you don't know much about over a little hero worship is fairly petty and downing on those who have fun there sounds like the work of a pompous dick bag. Good day, mon ami :).

I love sport climbing and crack climbing equally It's too bad I'm not "RAD" at either.

And like I said you may see Chris in the Valley sooner than later. It should be obvious what project he will be on.

He'll probably help Tommy unlock it too. It's right up his alley.

Together they will SEND!!!! ;)

Congrats to Chris, he's amazing.

The word "send" doesn't bug me.

...But "splitter"....it used to be a noun, or an adjective to describe a crack.
Now, the weather is splitter. That f*#king bugs me.

I can't believe humans can do stuff like these guys do. Amazing. Hope to be able to comprehend 5.12 some day in far away future...but 5.15+...goddamn...unbelievable.

This forum is full of posts stating how trad climbers are the Real Mccoy and clipping bolts is for little girls and pansies. Your original post sure looked like yet another. Couldn't help but to call it out.

I love sport climbing and crack climbing equally It's too bad I'm not "RAD" at either.

That makes two of us.

Still think Woodfords is way overhyped on this forum so no, you'll be happy to know I won't be back.

Flouride & Big Mike, Think of something steeper that has never been freed and fits his skill set.

While he's there may as well hop on Magic Line just to (try?) get the second. Not his style but would be interesting to see fo sho.

I met Chris in the valley, I don't know maybe ten years ago. I had just finished 10.96 feeling pretty good. Sat down to puff and up walks Chris who proceeded to flash Hang Dog Flier 5.12c. So yeah he probabally could d become one of the best trad climbers, but he seems a bit uninterested in persuing crack climbing, so it most likely won't happen. That said climbing is a great pursuit regardless of style and times change as do people. To call someone out for making a joke about a recreational activity only reveals the caller.
