I just read "Peter Terbrush"'s name on the first page of this thread.

He was a friend. Like so many, a great energy that the world will miss.

Another friend...Jonny Copp really stretched my perception of climbing.

I remember reading Twight's "extreme Alpinism" in my early 20's and feeling comfort learning this tribe existed within climbing.

So many inspirations.

Nothing to it, but to do it!

Some nice images in that short on Bonatti.
He was looking really good too.

I can only look to the names that inspired me to become a climber: Buhl, Comici, Cassin, Wiessner, Harrer, and as a partner (sometimes), Kor. Lest we forget: Rebuffat, and Terray. For Americans, how about R.L.M. Underhill?

Wiessner maybe. Hard rock to alpine adventure. Maybe the greatest feat in climbing history would have been K2 if he had made it. Way ahead of his time.

Weissner - rock, alpine, mountainnering......touched many states and countries

Hill - no need to use first female to qualify many of her accomplishments, the only climber I ever saw at the cliff which caused everyone to stop and watch
