Hey, wanna go climbing?

Brutus wouldn't want me going on about the date in particular, but getting some climbing done, now that's Brutus style.


i think there is a cam that needs to be recovered, or possibly some 'spring' skiing. hrm weather is looking good.

'In Your Eyes' - Peter Gabriel

love.... I get so lost, sometimes
days pass and this emptiness fills my heart
when I want to run away
I drive off in my car
but whichever way I go
I come back to the place you are

all my instincts, they return
and the grand facade, so soon will burn
without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

in your eyes
the light the heat
in your eyes
I am complete
in your eyes
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
in your eyes
the resolution of all the fruitless searches
in your eyes
I see the light and the heat
in your eyes
oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light
the heat I see in your eyes

love, I don't like to see so much pain
so much wasted and this moment keeps slipping away
I get so tired of working so hard for our survival
I look to the time with you to keep me awake and alive

and all my instincts, they return
and the grand facade, so soon will burn
without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

in your eyes
the light the heat
in your eyes
I am complete
in your eyes
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
in your eyes
the resolution of all the fruitless searches
in your eyes
I see the light and the heat
in your eyes
oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light,
the heat I see in your eyes
in your eyes in your eyes
in your eyes in your eyes
in your eyes in your eyes

Heading out to the Winds in a few weeks to do some climbing, including the Northeast Face of Pingora, and of course came across one of those classic Brutus of Wyde route topos for the route (from naclassics.com). Thanks, Bruce. Your spirit lives on.

naclassics.com is a cobweb domain.

http://lamountaineers.org/NAC/browserf/other/misc/index.htm is what you want.

Thanks for the inspiration, Bruce.

I have been thinking of Brutus lately. It's about that time.

Every climbing weekend is a gift.

Thanks Brutus.


Btw, Brutus, I think I found another Spire to climb. The thing will probably teeter over and I'll surf it down to the river. Should be fun!

Thats me sitting beside Brutus in the Facelift pic above - was glad to meet him. He had a great presence, and left a lasting impression. I never got to climb with him - but he still sticks in my memory.

Fishy.

I never had the pleasure of meeting the man, but from what I have learned about Em, Brutus must have been one amazing guy.

I think it's wonderful that all of you that knew him keep his memory alive and well here, and out on the stone.

His legacy lives on....
