I just saw that, too. Terrible, terrible and sad news. Hope it's not true.

WhoooHooooo!

Still a few good climbs left.

Whoever started this rumor, thanks (but no thanks) for the morning dose of adrenaline...

And it explains why I got a "Phone disconnected" response when I called Jim.

It's wildly irresponsible and just plain wrong to wank the crowd with false information like this. It send me reeling till Mike Graham and I sorted things out.

The Bird lives!

Clearly someone was trying to short Bridwell stock.

There ought to be regulations against such things.

Glad to hear this wasn't true.

Chuck Norris aspires to be Jim Bridwell.
The man who does not need water and smokes unfilter Marboros cannot be killed.
Sadly, after global warming and nuclear war and we are all long gone, the only climbing partners Jim will have left will be the cockroaches. Chuck Norris will long gone.
Glad the rumor was false.

I agree Largo and Mal... not too funny! My heart just sank until I read further, not cool playing on people's emotions like that.

Rock on Bridwell!

The Bird lives. Keep kickin'ass!!!!!!

I too wish I could meet a bad-ass like that. Seems like a nice guy...in a climbing sort of bad-ass kinda way.

Rock on!

Just got off the phone with him. After about forty minutes we were laughing about this whole thing. A stark contrast from my mood when I first heard this.

These kinds of rumors can be very devastating!

Anyway the Bird is indestructible.
