btw, wasnt there a guy from the 80s named "psycho ken" ?

(RIP, psycho ken)



this guy was widely known for often pulling a knife on his fellow climbers, during assorted "philosophical discussions"





Psycho Ken I believe was killed in a rappelling accident

Psycho Kenny and Luke the Fluke are the only climbers I have known crazy enough to actually kill someone. The rest are just a bunch of poseurs.

A google search brings up an obit for the parents of a Luke Stong, Grand Junction/Aspen area. Dated early 2003 and list him as surviving offspring.

Nobody by that name in the California prison system.

Pshycho Kenny was an unstable climber dude around Boulder back in the 80's from what I remember. He was bonafide allright. He ended up rapping off the end of his rope at Peanuts wall and died a really graphic and hideous death.

edit-

That's excellent, but I'm sure there's others. Gotta' be.

Yeah Dwain,

Climbing in the 80's had a purity of notion that's hard to come by in middle age. It was a freak show for all the good reasons. Some were good, some were bad but some went too far and chopped up their granny and stowed her in a trunk...

Why ? How? How come why? There's no explaining levels of reason I guess for the affected who deliver psycho killer effect.

I do believe the world is good and almost all the people in it are OK, reasonably, regardless of a preponderance of C- life scores in ethics...

I was thinking a while ago about how fresh and chill the Joshua Tree air was, holding promise at sun rise.

PM me your schedule for 2013 !

I googled the snot out of him and hist grandma's name but came up empty except for a mention in a geneology page. I'm not sure I got the names right.

I was in the valley during that time, but never even heard of this. I wasn't exactly clued in, though.

I do remember the gear thefts. It got so bad that every week you would hear of someone getting their racks stolen from leaving them at the top of fixed lines.

One of Layton's partners killed a woman and got busted after she was in the trunk of his car for 4 days, and one of the climbers who made a very early ascent of the Nose killed many people.

it would have been forensic psych - that is, part of the prison/justice system.

Inmate locator is not always right, one Chula Vista killer is not listed, but I know where he is.

From CCCman's photo, it does appear that the folks in Colorado were Stong's parents.

If alive, more likely Napa, or residing in a locked, secured residential care facility. His criminal case went to the Cal. Sup. Ct in 1993, but they denied review.
