I'm real glad I saw this thread.

Thanks for all the good that you have done for the sport.

It is a sport, right, or you wouldn't have been on that vintage cover.

And happy belations to you, as well.

Or cache the greeting this year for next year, then I can be first...

The welcoming atmosphere at the Gunks, so enjoyed by us later folk, was set by yourself, Dan Smiley, Hans, and Fritz.

Hard to say anything more meaningful than

Thank you!

I remember when I first met Jim in Boulder in the early 1960s, and
when he climbed a little in Eldorado. I always thought of him as
"the man," or one of them.... We have remained friends all through
the years. He was of great help to me when I worked on the history
of free climbing and drove to my house which, then for a short while,
was in Idaho. We sat for hours and talked climbing. He has an
impeccable memory.
