Do you want me to post up your toprope in Vedauwoo screaming like a little boy Will or Prod?

Well, we've never been to Vedauwoo together Goat, so stop throwing rocks in my direction.

We all have our down times but those that spray about their accomplishments while diminishing other seems half ass.

You're a funny guy Mr. Goat.

Oh right that was Indian creek Prod, sorry.
we all scream sometimes, except Will, he's the only hardman.

I'm trying to keep it light chill but these Greenies never let up.
Again this is about other folks climbs more than whatever I did, I'm a lightweight, except for skiing and bike riding.

I feel less dirty after binging on porn. Take it somewhere else, kids.

I've been hearing this one a lot around here so I thought I'd look it up.

It's really not much of an insult IMO.


Oh well beats talking about Christianity I guess....

I didn't blow off the book...it was full of insults and personal assaults and it bored me to tears.

I also didn't put FA's in for reason...people like you coming out of the woodwork claiming FA's top rope ascents.

You are the bad guy...holding others to something you can't even come close to doing.

You insulted Chris, then me, then my book. You got major issues when it comes to climbing, your ability and your place in it.

You look like a complete fool.


Thanks Prod...I do the best I can. :-)

Well why didn't you say that in the first place Bob, the Neptune book was funny and very informative and full of great accents despite the helter skelter way it was throw together.

Seriously I like you and what you have done for climbing but you gotta admit a lot of the history in Boulder Canyon is heady and needs to be taken with a grain of salt.

We are only here to try to inform each other and have fun but when a segment of the tribe is cut out and replaced with online beta you have to accept some repercussions from the left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing.

cheers and beers,

And I did not lead sh#t but a few climbs.


No...it is about your lies throughout this thread.

Last August (2013) Thom Byrne and I had a couple beers and talked about the bolts I placed on Archangel. In person, we decided together that I should remove one of the first two bolts above the first anchor at the ledge about 25 feet up. I placed those bolts relatively close together to prevent a ledge fall, but there are opportunities for thin gear placements in the area of the first bolt.

Earlier I promised to remove 5 of the 8 bolts I placed because that's what Thom originally wanted me to do. But after our friendly conversation we agreed that I would remove just one of them. Thom was very kind to settle on this arrangement and I thank him for allowing Archangel to remain intact as a sport route.

Yesterday, I finally made good on my promise and I removed the first bolt above the ledge. Take care getting to it. *You may want to bring an extra small cam and/or RPs to protect the moves leading up to the new first bolt.

What lies Bob?
It's well known you like to bolt.
Everyone needs to learn to embrace their failures, own it, laugh at it, it's the only way to get better.

You can learn a lot from Chris.

I missed this whole thread the first time around and caught up with the (much more abbreviated and to the point) discussion on MP and I have to say I'm impressed with how Chris stepped up, took responsibility, clarified his position and did what he could to make things right for everyone after his initial defensiveness. Good form, sir.

I forgot to ask, did Byrne say that he redpointed up to his original anchors? It would be nice to hear his side of things a little bit.

Wow. I just read the entire thread.

It was kind of interesting for the first 300 posts, then it turned into a personal sh#t slinging festival by a couple of guys who had nothing to do with the route in question.

I have to admit that it was a 5 star sh#t slinging festival, so there was a little chuckling going on.

I will sit on my hands now.

Always a tragedy when an established route is bolted into submission. Even if the FA party is ok with it, I think it's way lame. Take up golf or bowling, and stay away from my crags.
