Crazy Horse- WTF??

Did you read ANY of the info on this thread?

Better take your meds pal. Come back when they're working again.

"(i am aware that this will definatly [sic] start something)"

Sounds like you weren't really aware at all, were you, crazy horse? Rather than coming in and trolling, you might want to put some of the info you have down somewhere in an attempt to be productive rather than getting your panties in a wad when people inject some info/truth about the area.

I have climbed there for more than 2 decades, from one side of the Plateau to the other, one end of Shuteye to the other.

I told you what I thought about it.

I also told you what I think about chipping f*#ktards from SoCal.

You gotta problem with that, look me up brother, we'll settle it over a mug of your favorite beer.

and you will be glad for all the info when Herr Hasselhoff exits Pico Rivera and shows up in the North Cascades and Squamish in the Knight Rider, with his chisel, standard beardnet, Vogue photogs and Taco Bell squishpackets.

Then you will understand.

Yo Mental Horse,

Hmmmmm seems like I told you what I thought as well as many others. And I have been around there too (the talon, sqaw, grey eagle, the toad, the balls, other stuff by the toad, 557 wall, and some other places).

Don't go dissin the taco. PLENTY of real climbers here.

What did you do in the last week? I've spent 4 of the last 7 days climbing...On rock not plastic.

I too have climbed and beardnetted fish in this area for over nine decades, plus or minus a few. I've yet to finish a route or land a trout! The salsa at El Sids is nowhere as good as it used to be. The local chicks claimed it made them horny. The local law inforcement made them water it down after the Brunosafari incidents.

Dingus-

We are on the same page. There is a guy around here who is a chipping madman, I like the f***tard coment. I could not belive my eyes when I was looking at some boulders even that the guy chipped his way up. I thought the whole chipping debate was solved years ago. Pretty sad and REALLY lame.
Does anyone think it is appropriate to name the chipper? (besides aface or d*head)

Crazy:

Mark Hayman accomplished a rollerskate ascent of Courtright around '74. He said nothing about "ball bearing rock."

Does that help?

This doesn't have any thing to do with beard nets but still may interest some. OK, one day my wife and I drove up to the notch where you park for Shangri-La dome. Not two minutes after we step out of the car we hear an enormous crash. A old fir had fallen across the road right at the rock trials. I had to give my wife the "What do we do now Mrs. Big Shot Outdoorswomen look?" It took her forever to cut it up with our collapsible camp shovel. I finally gave in and helped only because it was getting cold and dark, two things which I happen to be cautious of. Sometimes I ponder leaving her at home! Her great grandmother wore a beard net.

Sorry to contradict my old pal Mtnmun, but that is Voyager Rock in the backround of my "portrait". I have spent many a season camped near Squaw Dome though. I hesitate to claim any "first ascents' as who knows who may have crossed my path previously. I have several "secret squirrel" spots I have been using for the last 25 years or so in SOYO. Blaine Neely used to summer up at the Madera County Youth Work Camp near Jackass Rock and is a good resident source of info.

Dunno about the salsa at El Cid's - still OK, by me. But there is a smokin' hot blonde working there lately that is enough of a reason for visits by me.

Oh yeah, by all means - I think it's perfectly acceptable to out folks who are chipping holds. I have an idea, of who it is. I'd be curious to see if I am right...

edit: Believe his name is Mark Haymond, Bruno.

Whoa.......Mark Haymond....I don't believe that! He's the original guidebook author of the Tollhouse guidebook. I know Mark and I hope this ain't true.

Thanks Nefarious for the proper spelling. It's been over thirty years since seeing Mark when our paths literally crossed on the Free-Blast. Or is it "Freeblast?"

(freeblast has nothing to do with the blonde, no matter what Phantom says.)

Post up Mark, if your out there. I still remember the slideshow of the roller derby.



EDIT: Radish-- Mark Haymond is the skater, not the chipper. Phantom's wife is the woodchipper, not the rock chipper. Chip is the brother of Dale, they're "two little happy souls."

I read that post wrong, Mark Haymond probably did roller skate up the Tollhouse Traverse. Not the same person who is a chipper!
