The title says it all. His first post was to the "First Ascent of the Needle's Eye" thread. He also has an excellent website, with a great deal about the history of bouldering, at www.johngill.net.

Glad that he's visited us here in SuperTopia, and hope that he visits often.

Anders

ps Please let me know if you'd like this removed - it's something of a ST tradition to say hello to new people.

John Gill,

Most excellent!
We're not worthy, but then who is...
Grab a chair & tell us a story!

Cheers,

Does he know about the Boogaloo?

He could answer some questions.
Like;
Did that route on VD boulder, seen in M 'o' rock, go, bitd?
What about the original ground leval on the "Gill boulder"? - is standing on a trash can at the start cheating, in current conditions?
why as a kinda smart guy, am I so bad @ math?

I have a jeopardy-full, of questions.

Big welcome, in any case. From a peon, like myself.

as an over 50 guy, I am working on regaining, from advice on his site, my one arm pull up.

without John Gill (and his biographer Pat Ament)I think a lot of us in San Diego would have never known that "bouldering" was something real...thanks guys!

Werner, John's nom de plume is "jgill". It may have been his first ST post, the 47th on the Needles thread.

I like the idea of welcoming new folks, although understanding that some may prefer peace and quiet.

Yes thanks Anders

But earlier I searched the whole thread several times and did not see it.

I'm so sorry I'm blind as bat.
