I believe he was joking... But Chris B, is a bad ass climber and all around good dude.

Sharma grew up in Santa Cruz and learn to climb on are boulder problems and stuff we did in the Bay, BITD.

He ironically thinks all that stuff is some how hard, but he manage to eventually hike everything and add impossible variations to many of the classic.

Being the humble, class act, that Sharma is, he makes every effort to be nice to us old timers and pay his respect.

Bottom line the only one who made Chris Sharma, is a God given talent and a passion to match.

Sharma is falling from the lime-light, as the soon to be dead... soloist, is getting the masses, blood lusty.

EDIT... The above sentence was written for effect, ignoring the strict rules of proper grammar.

Scotty, I tried to email you privately but ST would not let me. I wanted to say:

"May I make a friendly suggestion? Put your posts in a word processor that can check for spelling and grammar before you post the actual text into the wild. This can be done on mobil as well as laptop and desktop devices.

It is my belief that things will go quite a bit better for you and we your supporters if you had the assistance of a word processor like Word or Pages to keep your writing polished. Many of us here do this, by the way. I always do unless it is simply a sentence or so. Your points are important and you want to bring your best forwards.

best to you, Peter Haan"

????? Thanks Peter, I'll check it out...

I fixed it for ya,...

Read, some of my published works, if you want something polished; this is not an English class.

Sorry, if I made a stab at your love child Alex, I just don't want to see the kid die... He will, if he keeps it up. I find his solo of Sendero appalling and far from solid, and the blood lust from his sponsor and media horrifying.

We're all going to die if we keep it up . . . there are many paths that lead to our inevitable demise. Someday even the Earth will be quiet and still . . . the history of mankind will be blowing in the cosmic wind.

Thanks, Will.

...I'lll check it out...

I promise to write slower, and channel my old Freshman comp teacher. Hopefully, Chris Mac will get a cyber red ink pen. So, Peter Han, DMT and the other word smiths around here, can keep this forum on the up and up.

Kalimon, you can have your thoughts. But, Alex is not solid and will die soon, if he keeps it up.

I've climbed and soloed with the best and I know what I'm talking about.

And (dam never start a sentence with and) I will say no more about this...

Back to the OP's query and not my lack of spelling and grammar skills.

I'm not PC, sorry....

I really been enjoying coz's recent writes here. If anybody has a problem with his posts, go back and read his account of the FFA on Southern Belle (for one thing) for some perspective.

When is Sharma going to start soloing? Just when I get used to this whole new promotion of soloing, Coz has to go and throw tacks in the road. I loved that highball video of Lonnie Kauk at the Butters. Are we getting buttered up to take a fall? We are all in this together guys. We can call bullshit on the big promoters of this stuff and tell them to go F themselves.

Maybe TNF should change their mantra to; NEVER STOP STICKING YOUR NECK OUT.

If you spell like a third grader, you'll get treated like a third grader. Or a whiney narcissistic bitch, depending on the audience.

There is also a great clip floating around of Lonnie Kauk doing a high ball problem called Too Big to Flail V10. Kick ass footage.
