Rolf posted this on my auction thread, but I thought it might get a wider audience with it's own thread.

Will Stanhope has asked me to post on his behalf. (can't log on with his Iphone)

He is offering: One day of single/multipitch guiding this September. He is an ACMG assistant rock guide and can be contacted at willstanhope@gmail.com.

Lol! I thought it was very generous. I barely know Will, or a lot of these people but they have stepped up to help me in my time of need.

For that i am extremely grateful. I would much rather just go climbing with them, but that just ain't the way things shook out.

Hopefully one day i will get to go climbing with them.

Locker is also giving handjobs behind the circle K.


That's not to raise funds or anything just FYI.

In all seriousness, an opportunity to climb and be with hilarious Will for a whole day would be pretty giant.

The kid is a genius. Take a look at him: he is relaxed, flaccid almost, under-built, and still a marvel to watch on the hardest pitches. It is hard to understand from a distance, to be frank. And his character verges on pro comedian, I'd say.

In short, a great chance at seeing what is really going on today at this top level in pure rock. I'd think he would rise to the occasion and make a solid experience out of it for whomever goes for it!
