Great post Todd and a cool young man who I've had the good fortune to climb with. He dreams bigger and tries harder than most people I've met, and dam were we ever that skinny and fit ?

We are heading out to the park tomorrow Tyler, nine at Nomads.

Tyler is a good guy, great climber and all around good spirit to be around. Amazing how he makes due with the "nub" and climbs some pretty hard stuff. He'll jump on the sharp end, is willing to take a fall and has caught a bit of the new route development bug. On occasion, as Todd has mentioned the clips are all right handed, and that is problematic but not really a deterrent.

Tyler tells a good story about blowing is hand off, the paramedics response and what ensues afterwards at his home. All again, in good spirits.

I never think twice about having him belay, he seems to have that wired too.

Shirtless, torn pants and smiles.... that's Tyler.

There is a climber in Calgary, Dave Crossley, who was born with no fingers and only part of a thumb on his right hand. He leads 5.12 sport and 5.11 trad. He can hang off the smallest of edges with his right.
