Who else is holding: "This Ain't No Weenie Roast"?
How about: "I Don't Care What You Think"?

IIRC, those were a joint venture between FROG & Kinnaloa?
Ray Olson did the artwork and Bruce Pottenger did the silkscreening?

I'd really appreciate some fact checking on that collaboration, along with high-res photos of each. Apogee, might you rescan/reshoot that or send me the higher res raw file?

It had a sequence of faces on it, like from the guy on one of the early NASA rocket sleds.

I'm doing an article on Ray Olson. So yes, high resolution is needed. Preferably at 300 dpi. Or Maybe, just a photograph in the range of 2 to 4 MB.

I can't seem to find what I was looking for, When I was gettin' paid by east coast weekend warriors, out on your coast or in RMNP I wore tee shirts from the 'Jersey' Shore or Catskill bait & fishing store shirts.
If any of the climbers did not know me to see me, they were told to find the short hairy stranger wearing an east coast 'fishing' themed tee shirt. I'm told that ridiculed for my spaghetti arms, I deleted those pictures?

The other Kinnaloa shirt, "I Don't Care What You Think" is the only one that Ray Olson obliquely referenced having a hand in. He just said here on the forum that there was a story behind it. I'm trying to sort that out, along with the relevant artwork.

Someone else here on Supertopo said Ray had something to do with that shirt and the Weenie Roast shirt. I'll collect what images I can and continue to try to contact Bruce.

Hallelujah!
It was right under my nose –from the thread Ray Olson RIP:

In the early 90s I got way into sailboat racing. I hooked up with a crew of serious, hardcore racers and we campaigned a CF-27 named "Pullit Surprise." Bruce of Kinnaloa was also doing some sailboat racing at the time, and somewhere along the way I got wind of the Wienie Roast shirts he'd made. The graphic was a Ray Olson collage featuring Ray Charles with spiral eyes. The sentiment fit our crew perfectly. I asked Bruce if he could make us some crew shirts and after getting the copywrite okay from Ray, we got a batch of a dozen or so. We rocked those shirts throughout Southern California and won a lot of races. I still have mine, though the fabric is so thin now, it's coming apart just sitting in the drawer. I'm including a couple picture, a little bit of Ray still with me.

Our climbing tribe brings us in contact with so many talented, eccentric, independent and creative people. Ray was one of those. I cary more than his memory with me, but also his influence on my life formed all those years ago.

Fry Canyon Lodge is an esoteric one!

Historic Fry Canyon and Fry Canyon Lodge
Large Photo
Close Window
Fry Canyon Lodge is isolated, the only building for the entire length of Scenic Byway U95. It is 71 miles southeast of Hanksville, 51 miles west of Blanding, and 24 miles (including the 1½ miles down Hite Road) from tiny Hite, Utah, which sits on the bank of the Colorado River and Lake Powell (at normal lake levels) inside Glen Canyon National Recreation Area.
The infamy of Fry Canyon dates back to the 1950s when the AEC opened an uranium mine in Fry Canyon without telling the miners of the radiation to which they would be exposed and from which they might die (they did). Fry Canyon Lodge opened in 1955 and was a bustling, rowdy business in those days, but closed after the mines shut down, and the lodge fell into decay.
Lodge history after the mining bust is a bit sketchy, but we know it was restored by new owners and open in 2001 from an article titled "The Motel at the End of the Universe" at globeSouthwest Aviator. Restored again in 2005 by new owners, it was open mid-March through October. It was not terribly expensive ($100-125 including dinner and breakfast). The Lodge generated its own utilities, with a satellite phone for emergencies - public utilities including cellular are not available in the area. It sounds like the perfect place to get away from everything.
The Lodge was closed on our trip in September, 2012 (date of this photo), looking as if it had been closed for some time. I do not know if the Lodge was open when I passed by it in 2008 (date of most of the Scenic Byway U95 photos). It must have been open in 2008 - I remember thinking about making a reservation at the Lodge, but did not, electing to spend the night in Blanding before heading west on U95. I do not understand why I must have been in such a hurry when I drove by that I did not notice - I have always been interested in that outpost in the middle of nowhere (perhaps even more remote, now that Upper Lake Powell has dried up and Hite Marina is closed).
Nearby Hite Marina has been open only one season (2012) in the last decade as a result of the continuing drought - 19 years and counting. Perhaps that is a reason the Lodge closed, perhaps the USGS water purifying process of the uranium mine tailings failed? Whatever the cause, a unique and intriguing historical enterprise is out of business. Select Large Photo for a dark, cloudy-day photo of the Fry Canyon Lodge.

Right on, Roy – not many Only climbing shirts out there.

The OC campaign was a short-lived but tasty Access Fund campaign that was spawned by interim director Sam Davidson and myself. A sweet series of ads, but only one made it onto a shirt.

The test print run of the shirt was a disaster. Someone had tried to touch up the rope, and completely F’ed it up. The revised art, as on your shirt, looked good, but purists will never forgive me for flopping El Cap. Which I understand. The print ads were right-page placements, and it looked super awkward with the climber's head in the gutter. So that’s why I flopped it. The route is WEML, climbed mostly* solo around ’98 in 13 days, shot with a 28mm f2.8 Nikon FM2, partly cloudy and windy, making it a skeet-shooting affair. *Thanks to that dood walking the base who flipped my errant haul line for me so I could speed haul a bag. Way more trivia than one shirt should be allowed…



Surprised to not see Phoenix Bouldering Contest shirts. Greg, how many years did they have shirts? All 14? Rick the dick probably knows. I have the one with the gorilla tucked away somewhere, I think '89.

To your final sentiment: I wholeheartedly disagree! Back story is part and parcel to provenance, and frequently interesting to collectors. I'd imagine most of the artwork being shared here is not in the hands of the original designers, or we would probably have more!

I received two of those Only Climbing shirts from CMAC, along with some guidebooks, IIRC as a contribution to my medical bills benefit back in 2009. Either that, or in thanks for some of the Dean Fidelman Yabo/Planet X posters I donated to the ASCA. I always wondered what was up with those shirts, so thanks for piping in, Mike!


You want more trivia than should be allowed? Ha ha. Those arms have been ridden hard and put up wet, as the old horse traders of yore used to say about a mount that was abused. And the bottle, with that bright red wax sealing stamp for a label is from a 1997 vintage Terrabianca Campaccio Riserva, a renowned Tuscan IGT. And the custom bottle cork will actually hold and preserve the spritz from an open bottle of Italian Prosecco!



BTW: there has been one Phoenix Contest T-shirt posted up thread:

Surprised to not see Phoenix Bouldering Contest shirts. Greg, how many years did they have shirts? All 14? Rick the dick probably knows. I have the one with the gorilla tucked away somewhere, I think '89.

I have one from #9 in my spraydown above. I have a couple or three others I can post up.

There were shirts for most of the PBCs, I believe.
I think Marty has a fairly full contingent hanging around somewhere IIRC.

Another one, gah...cool!


PCB, who's holding? Dickbob? Leo and Matt? Jbro? Donnely? I went to one at the Bolus, Camelback Mountain and one at South Mountain. I was a shitty competitor but had fun. Kauk and Griffith won those handily IIR.

Many years later I snuck into the Bolus; there was a house right above the Iron Cross problem and construction remnants strewn about the base of the traverse. It made me wish I hadn't gone in there. Super weird and ghostly.

At the South Mountain one my gf and I walked behind a boulder to burn a J and ended up in a love knot, it was richter, I couldn't pull sh#t then either.

Several of Sheridan Anderson's cartoons made it to the backs of T-shirts. I don't have the actual shirts, but here are two:

the 2014 Oakdale Climbers' Festival - A Woman's Reach" had 2 shirts for sale that Steve Grossman had gotten permission to print on shirts. One of them had this image:


I gave the ones that I bought there away to deserving friends, but Steve or others may have the actual garments.

On Google, I found this one as well, not unexpected since Yvon was/is an avid fly fisherman, and Sheridan wrote The Book on fly-fishing.

How many of you collectors, thinking of SLC Brian & Steel Monkey for starters, have displays of your hard goods à la Marty Karabin et al?

I know this is just a T-shirt thread, but I'd really be interested to see some photographs. Is there another thread covering this topic?

I've been enjoying your posts for years in this regard and it just occurred to me you guys must have some awesome collections. Thinking hard goods, soft goods, books, what else is there? It's all very interesting to me.

I have a bunch of random odds and ends laying around here and there, I'm really a book collector, but these are the only "displays" I ever put together, and mainly because for this particular stuff, I didn't want the items to end up buried in a box or a bag somewhere. And it seemed like kind of a cool wall hanging.

Parba Big H set - the little blurb in the box is from Stephane's site and the only real information I ever saw about these. Used to be I could "hold" it over Stephane, as he didn't have a set of these, but I believe he has corrected that lapse. :-)


Random Old Gear - Coonyard curved nuts, Heibeler "death clamps", Lowe cam, Forrest Arrowhead, Moac, etc.


And the Shockley's poster to balance out the wall...

Hey thanks, Steel Monkey, for sharing those photographs of your nicely presented curiosities.

The Parba Big H nut is something I had never heard of, nor seen until now!
They're very elegant.

All these years later, the Heibeler clamps, Forrest Arrowhead, and Moac nut are looking pretty sweet under glass.

The Forrest Arrowhead & Moac nut are of particular interest to me visually. The proportions of their native rectangles along with the tapers are pleasing to the eye. If you are familiar with a proportional schema called the golden mean that artists sometimes appeal to in their compositions: I wonder if those two items come close to following it?

Simon,

Just for kicks (not exactly sure what kind of kicks) I just read the entire thread from 2010 about your Yabo Says Relax T-shirt.
Damn, that was a rough ride for all concerned!

I passed on that thread when it came out, because, well, you know.
I will say you acquitted yourself grace and wit, but you knew that I'm sure. I'd bet the Yabo shirts all sold through just fine!

I liked Frankie Goes to Hollywood quite a lot! Just happen to have Welcome to the Pleasure Dome here as a single on 12 inch 45 RPM vinyl, w/ Relax on side B.

If I were to design a Yabo T-shirt for myself, it would probably say: Dimp for a Chimp. Not sure what the best pairing of Yablonski related artwork would be.
Probably fairly arcane for most people to get, but Dimp for a Chimp was a boulder problem or TR in JT, and IIRC, it was named after him, or should have been at any rate.

Happy trails,
Roy

And you are spot on with your last post. The T-shirts trace the evolution of our sub culture.

Here's one from Lynne Leichtfuss, dead on topic, featuring Bruce Pottenger sporting his silkscreened magic of the well loved Ray Olson Weenie Roast design, and Randy Vogel in another T-shirt which has made this thread, on the right:

Leaving that point aside for the moment, which is probably just me making it more complicated than it needs to be:

John,

I'd guess most of the deletions in this thread have to do with whole photo account deletions. Examples: I asked RJ to strip out all of my photographs which were hosted on their server, to save myself the work of going through them. Walling asked for the same. We know the moderators stripped mouse's photo account clean. That's three contributors to your nice thread, just off the top of my head. I doubt RJ went through this thread and made any particular deletions.
