Fukkin' AAAA Vitaliy, I'm trying to fight the good fight.

Like many silverbacks on here, most of the people that started climbing at the same time I did are long gone from the game.

I can't climb like BITD, but I still pull down reasonably hard and still have ambitions for large/semi-large stuff.

Yes, I have FA's, but no big wall FA's in Yosemite. I've done some early repeats of big things, but I'm not a rock star.

Does this 'silverback' term carry a positive or a negative meaning? If I use the 's' word around here will I be trolled by other 'silverbacks?' Or do I need to get to know one well first, and than it would be ok for me to use it?

Depends on if you're pitching or catching of course.

U guys should catch up with the internetz and get facebewks, so instead of using the forum, we could actually use the 'chat' option. Not sure if FB will upload those black and white photos many of you post around here, but another reason to buy a digital camera! : )

Paul Gagner:

16.Aug 1987 South Face, Mt. Watkins 22h:20mins
first one day solo ascent

That was during the R&D phase of the Silent Partner. Loved the GAGgot's stories when it was all said and done. Get this. . . he did it on 1 bag of Skittles and a quart of water.

Gotta LOVE that GAGgot!

:-)
