Wow, just ran across that journal entry by Brutus. Incredibly beautiful. He continues to amaze. That's a saver, for sure.

Thanks for sharing it Em; I really enjoyed meeting you on that icy, icy night in Bishop last November!

Love the recent photos too.

How can you feel like you knew (in at least a small way) someone you never met? Brutus sure had the ability to project himself in that way.

Peace,

I was looking for a picture of my kids and happened across some road trip pictures from the year we gave Allen Steck a 75th birthday party at Red Rocks. This shot is of Bruce, Allen and Inez in our room at Bonnie Springs.

Thanks for posting those pictures Mr. Dog. That was a fun week, but somehow we missed the night of the slides. Our loss.

Just the day before had been looking at Brutus pics, and noticed this one in particular.

Note the swarshbucklin broad sword in his belt!

Yarrrrr, matey!

He brought a half gallon of Jack and that kept him busy. For one night. I have a picture of him with the big jug of whiskey in one hand and a beer in the other. It was the closest he could come to a Karate Kid kind of balance.

After reading this, which saddens me greatly, I'm pretty sure that I knew Bruce, but very briefly, many years ago. I have often wanted to meet him again, but now know that will never happen until I cross over. I think it was back in the 70's or 80's that I was traveling out west and picked up a hitchhiker who was on his way to California. I remember dropping him near Redding. He had just done some climbing up in Washington state, I believe. We hit it off immediately, and he was a great traveling companion for the short time we had together. I know he was younger than I, and it is so sad to hear that he is gone. Even though I did not really know him, I do miss greatly the idea that he has gone on to the next plateau or peak. RIP Bruce. We loved you.

Hi, welcome to the Taco...

I only know Bruce through his climbs, bummer for me.

I was climbing at Alabama Hills last weekend and it was cold, we went and climbed BRUTUS SUNNY CLIMBS they were all nice and warm - and interesting climbs to boot.

The MAN lives on through his deeds.

peace

No worry Munginator, plenty of time but every minute counts.

Sent some of Brutus's ashes off top of the Sentinel last week. I think I heard the wind say "Let's go climbing!"

Missed this great video tribute, Mosers. Leaving a beer! (The Irishman in me is blown away by that.) Go climbing, Em.

Crazy you guys bumped this thread today. This weekend a friend and I were in Shangri La - a place I read about in DMT's writing. As soon as I read about it, I wanted to get out there, but its location was a mystery to me for a long time. Had to be sort of a Sherlock Holmes for a few years before I got there. Yesterday Et tu, Brute (1,000ft 5.9+ A2) turned into Brutus of Wyde Memorial Route (1,000 5.11a). With incredible two pitch variation that features a few roofs and an overhanging splitter crack. Even though I have not met him, his writing and new routes he put up were and continue to be a big inspiration to me.

Brutus thought it would go free at 5.11, and would be stoked know it got done -- Kudos, Vitaly!

PS Great sleuthing. "Keep it safe, keep it secret..."

Had no idea, but I guess some energy out there pushed me to get out there. Drove in and slept at the trailhead on Friday. Hiked in and finished another route I started on the right side of the formation (Parasitic Nematode 550ft 5.10++ PG13) and climbed Et tu Brute yesterday/hiked out/home/went to work after 2 hours of napping. Was not happy about cramming so much in two days, but it was worth it. I wanted to try that route for a LONG time and tgubgs just worked out. Last year when I went there, I found the face to be too intimidating. Glad I waited. Again, sorry the community lost such a valuable person. His positive influence is obvious and is missed.

Parasitic Nematode takes the right leaning crack/corner system in the middle of the photo. Some interesting climbing.
