SUPERTOPO CLIMBING GOLD: 0.0 A Guide to SuperTopo Gold
SUPERTOPO CLIMBING GOLD: 1.0 Trip Reports
SUPERTOPO CLIMBING GOLD: 2.0 Threads: Foundational Series
SUPERTOPO CLIMBING GOLD: 2.1 Threads: Individuals
SUPERTOPO CLIMBING GOLD: 2.2 Threads: Areas + Routes
SUPERTOPO CLIMBING GOLD: 2.3 Threads: Climbing Conversation
SUPERTOPO CLIMBING GOLD: 3.0 Single Posts


My hope is that this index of SuperTopo Climbing Gold will collect and organize the highest quality climbing related information, narrative and entertainment on the SuperTopo Climber’s Forum.

As such, the goal is not to catalog every single thread or tr, but rather to mine the best 1-3% [or so] worth of climbing related threads and posts that this forum has to offer. To add your favourite hidden and not so hidden climbing related SuperTopo gems to these index threads, just post the thread, tr, or single post that made a significant impression on you, to any of the six threads and i'll keep [in time :)] compiling and making them clickable on the first post of the applicable threads.

There are only two rules and two instructions:

Rules: 1. no self-authored nominations
..... 2. nominations need to be somewhat climbing related.

Instructions: 1. be specific regarding which threads or posts you deem worthy [ie. i need something more specific than "all of jimmy joe willicker's threads”]
..... 2. ask yourself whether it's just a personal fave or whether it rises to the level of quality that these lists generally rise to, thus far.

The absence of anything about Bob Kamps is surprising. I know I've written something about him but I'm not allowed to nominate my own posts. In any case, surely mine is not the only one?

ok. the americans list was getting long and kinda ugly... so i reorganized based on decade of birth year. this was mostly done using google, so at this point many are not definitive. if i've screwed something up or for those that i couldn't find anything and just straight up guessed based on their contemporaries, feel free to either post up corrections here or email me at nah000 at hotmail dot com and i'll clean them up.

now onto the most prolific of the miners... the suggestions are much appreciated Tarbuster. lots and lots of good stuff here... and yeah word to the wise: if you nominate dozens and dozens, you'll prob get a pass on a self nomination or two:

and i'll be including L's Zion stories as a trip report on the next update of that section... love these old gems that get pulled up...

and i did one rare bit of editing regarding the Ron Fawcett suggestions: most of those threads were pretty bare and covered the same ground... while i usually don't make comment on what is and is not gold and just compile, i'm only going to post the meatiest of the Ron Fawcett threads for two reasons: i don't have time/interest in having these lists become exhaustive as the intent for these threads is to compile the info/story/convo that is compelling and unique... while that's a pretty grey charge, and in most cases i'm not here to enforce that, in this case those five threads started to become pretty lean and derivative... 99% of the time you find gold, Tarbuster, so know i'll only step in, if your exuberance is particularly egregious... :)

finally, the bridwell list compiled by Mark Force on his Thanks to The Bird thread: a couple of those were already included on the above list, and i also added the cerro torre thread as it had some good commentary. the rest of them i'll leave for people to find on Mark Force's thread as they are mostly single posts [and some of them have already been included there]



And thanks Steve Grossman... as that is already in the foundational threads list, i'll accept a self-nomination... :) good stuff in that thread:

1940s
Americans
Erb, Dick; ?: Dick Erb Appreciation Thread [Steve Grossman: Nov. 7, 2009]



finally, i sublimated the nationalities list into the by decade organization as it seemed cleaner and [hopefully] more useful...

and as always, if there are errors with regards to nationalities or birth decade/year, post em up [ideally with a source] and i'll get it fixed.

I don't have a source, but I think it's safe to say that Chuck Clance a.k.a. Clancy, was born in the 1950s.
I was born in 1960 and I am pretty darn sure he was older.

[edit]
Here's verification on Chuck Clance's age:
http://www.supertopo.com/climbing/thread.php?topic_id=1148791&msg=1248422#msg1248422

In a 2007 CLIMBING article, his age was stated as 55.
So he was probably born ~1952-ish.
