Mark emailed me today to tell me all about it. He said that the highlight was finally getting to meet Steve Schneider face to face. I'm glad everyone got a chance to make their peace. Looking forward to the movie!

Nice pic, Kait. You gonna be on the wall this spring?

Pete, it would be great to be able to be on the wall this spring. But I doubt that will happen. I have been working 60 hour weeks out at the mine. Hopefully this summer if I'm lucky.

Looks like the only dorks in this drama

R Grossmen and Mimi.

Hopefully they can get some couples counseling.

Really it was only a few bullies BITD who came down so hard on these guys.

Good to see Ammon and Kate being cool, their the real deal!

The film is still in the works, although I think the focus is changing a bit... I'm not sure, I'm not that much of a film guy.

Anyway, it was awesome to have met Mark and Richard and tell them first hand of what I thought about WOS.

The bottom line is: Don't go up there if you're not ready to take a ton of falls.

Cheers!

Wow, super cool stuff, great ending to a lot of drama.
Much respect to you guys for getting up there and getting some facts straightened out and clearing up some mis-conceptions.

This is a world class story.
Absolutly remarkable.
And a warning to all concerning how unfair the human race can be and how deep the truth can get buried in sh#t.
And what kind of man, and strength of character it takes, to uncover the truth!

With no hyperbole the original book is one of the best accountings of adventure I have ever read. Funny, witty, honest and gripping. If you havent read it - please do.

Yep, most of the empires have no cloths.

Deuce...I’ve always had respect for you and your ethics. But for years I let unclimbed routes go because I couldn’t see a way to connect the “natural” features without drilling. Then I came across drilled holes on your routes. Some in Zion have fixed beaks in them, I guess the idea being that removing the beaks would destroy the holes. All this is respectable. But unless you are Rienhold Messner and have never drilled a bolt, it’s being a hypocrite and playing rock good to speak of “natural”, “non-enhanced” and ethics.

Much, much respect and kudos to Pass the Pitons Peter. I‘ve been out of climbing for a while and just now discovering your achievements. Kudos for being fun, not having an ego that keeps you from seeking the truth, and for speaking the truth when you find it.

Did I miss a thread (I still have not read them all) where the other anonymous people that treated or spoke poorly of the WOS FA team apologize, or at the very least grow some balls (or virginas) and acknowledge their deeds (besides Steve). For something you are (or were) so passionate about protesting for so long you are a bunch of pussies when it comes to telling who you are.

Steve, I can see something positive in all this. In coming forth and being truthful, you set an example for the newer generation of climbers. I’m sure they will do stupid things when they are young too. But hopefully they won’t let too many years go by before they go, hey you know what, I’m going to do something cool, do like Steve did and make it good.

Bump to give Ammon and Kait congrats on the "Honorable Mention" in the Climbing Mag "Golden Piton Awards" for this year.

They'll be queuing up now...

Sorry to bum everybody out by putting a WOS thread back at the top of the forum but:

Did anybody ever get their movie they ordered? Still looking for mine but maybe the postman tossed it in the trash to save time on his delivery route. It happens (you know who you are).

Anyways, for those who got what they ordered: Was the movie good?

But, Mighty, is it a wall climb or a slab climb?

I think you're getting your facts mixed up, haa haa!

Sorry to bum everybody out by putting a WOS thread back at the top of the forum but:

Really? Why would anyone get bummed out? It's been said a THOUSAND times, if you're not interested... don't click! At least this is a climbing thread, ha ha.

I don't think the film is out yet. Jeff is still doing interviews from what I understand.
