what would it have pics of?


My guess: some super amazeball ridge climb in the high sierra that is just around the corner from a major trailhead and nobody would be the wiser.


Tis the season for Sierra. What are you hiking into in the coming months?

it'd be blank, for to say he don't waste time on the digitalis,dudley.

Me, I'm here with you, hiking off into commitments other than the outdoors-type. Next fews, I'ma send me two-three-four new summits, alone or so, 'suming no Jimmy Dunn done done them dirty deeds and sneaky 'fraid mantles 'fore me. I'm up in the alpine before that, kissing cold creekwatr and boulder's giardiasis feocal 'fects.

metaphorically, the man'd prob not be spilling the beans or the cliffpron all over our faces. Not that there is a record of his behavior and nonparticipation or anythinn.

ah, ya got it all crabbed. A pic is not a disclosure of location, make.

But true.


But let's say you're a skeeter in the backcountry watching them back country climbers.

What would ya see?

I'd suspect Croft takes dumps in catholes, swatting mosquitoes and dodging sunburn like the rest of us, on the best days. I mean that in the most complimentary way.

He doesn't spend much of time broadcasting how great he is. That's what makes him likeable.

Hah. Maidy nailed it. I've only met the mini Aussie Shepard. Peter was hammering the Druid's trail with the little guy. Weaponized cute. Both, really. Peter is a pretty cute guy. So mellow, soft spoken. Spray on Instapuke does not seem likely in his future.

Ya'll are projecting sponsor spray on the idea. Not all insta is ego spray. I agree Don. But I would follow "weaponized cute" lol dig it.

I'm wondering if the joke is that everyone knows peter actually does have an IG and is pretending he doesn't...or if it's just fun to pose the question since he hasn't posted anything in a couple years?
Of course I wish he posted a little bit but, like another said, the lack of posting adds to the mystique. Good dude for sure, last time I grabbed a couple books from him, he just sent em to me, trusted me to send the check...I like a "handshake" man, and he def is.

Croft is one of my all time heroes...

His guide books are are entertaining and humorous, and you see from his stories what a bad ass he really is without him having to brag about it.

I wish he did have an instagram...
