To you as well, mike m. You posted a lot of great content here. I hope you might forgive me for calling you names. Cheers.

I hope so too! I really like both of you guys. mike m was my first (and only) ice climbing partner.

mike m, thanks for deleting that other thread (at least I think that's what happened).

And thanks too for being one of the people who kept this place going over the years.

Sounds like he trusts you, D. Maybe you can convince him that I'm only 50% as$hole. TIA.

No more tacos for you! :)

Happy routes everyone. May your holds be solid, your shoes sticky and your stories tall. It was a privilege hanging with you.

Signing off...

Those wishing to thank Chris, RJ, and their minions might do so by contributing to the American Safe(r) Climbing Association. A favourite cause of Chris', at least, and a token of appreciation.

Thanks to our hosts, and to all those who contributed positively to this monkey show, and all those I met and (mostly) interacted with. We'll meet again. Vera Lynn is now 102 years old, and still insists that we will.

One door closes, and another one probably opens. What, where, and when? We'll see.

Thanks Chris for supporting this over the years. I always thought this site is an important archive of climbing history. Glad to see the text will be preserved.

As someone who hasn't climbed much in years and can count on one hand the number of people from this site that I've met in person, the forum will be missed. This has been a excellent resource and repository of knowledge from climbers of all types, with the obvious bias towards the Valley. It has always been fascinating to hear from elder statesmen and women of the tribe, those who were present at some of the significant events that have made climbing what it is today.

No less interesting has been the "off topic" threads wherein members have given us all a glimpse into their lives "off the rock", be it about their families, their pets, what they're building, even their conspiracy theories du jour.

Berg Heil, Supertopo!

I have so followed all the posts.

I've love the irreverant interactions, especially those that assured me I was not the only person that called out jerk-ery

I've read amazing route reports, and laughed so much at the stupidity of just doing it.

Truly truly sad at the loss of the taco forum

And the music and the musing

It's great to find something so free and crazy and unfiltered, and yet respectful for damm hard stuff

I miss you guys, every freakin one of you

I have to ask. . . why did you steal my name?



Who in their right mind would do that?

Seems like you thought you had something to gain.

I can't imagine what it might be!

Tell all, if you would be so kind.

Tradman Climbs! Per your post!

I turn 57 tomorrow... Its a strange feeling losing the taco. Farwell friends. Be safe and have fun.

Best wishes for a very happy post ST birthday. It was great to meet & get to know you folks last spring. Don't be strangers.

I find no desire to thank those who are killing this fine online community, but happily, many of us have established links to our ST friend's lives.

mtnyoung says, "will be giving you lots of penalty slack next time I have a chance."

Looking forward to it! I should get out more. Lots of slack? Might as well, as they say nothing holds in those mud 'n crud. :)

I can't imagine this site without more active contributions will stay around for long. Visiting traffic will plummet. A lapse in the renewal of domain registration or the web hosting could make this entire website go away over night.

While there will be no more threads predicting the opening date of Tioga Pass, maybe people can make their guesses about last day (year) of . My prediction is 2020.

Thanks Chris and RJ!

I sure will miss lurking around this place..... Over the years I've been a dedicated lurker (lol) on quite a few climbing forums, and a few non-climbing forums. This place will go down as one of the best. Sad to see it go.

Thanks again!
