I think the guy is mind blowing. I can make no assumptions about his motivations.

I only soloed 5.10, usually pretty solid ones. So I've done ones that felt pretty basic to me and also ones where I felt I was well beyond basic...heh...But I still know how radical it "felt" in between my ears when I was on a sketchy one.

I hope Alex lives a long time.

ascribe meaning to it as you see fit

This is a mature way to look at his life's accomlishments.

To me there are indications that Alex's writing style is zoned in on RR's best, but he's had that role model since he started climbing, and who knows really who he's going to eclipse as a writer?

He's funny, too, really funny, if you've seen him deliver on the stage. He understands timing. I hope he finds time to write more.

So impressed -- who could not be -- but so, so worried about the headline I fear one of these days, Alex. Please put a rope on and live a long time. It's not just for your sake, or for your mom's. The more we laud and celebrate achievements like this, however impressive, the more we normalize taking risks like this and by doing so encourage others to follow. I miss my dead friends. I really do.
