I did not know Brutus but EM that was some powerful and beautiful writing you posted.

Bump for the gone but not forgotten as I said before you know when you read things like what's written here you have missed meeting a person we all should have met and learned something from.

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.

And here's another as Brutus talked about climbing Waddington with Em during his slide show that had folks dropping their jaws repeatedly.

Awesome slide show.

Yo Mad Dog! Nice pix, and great memories. How's the family, and all the blow-up doll harem?

Here's a link to Brutus's TR of the Waddington climb. It truly was a jaw-dropping trip.

Hi Em!

Our family is fighting it out in the trenches. Nolan is a freshman at CU, Logan a junior at Monarch High. Karen is hanging in there, keeping us sort of in line. Here's another from that party night...

And one more. That's Nolan that Bruce is talking to. Bruce was patient with our kids and treated them so good. That meant the world to us. Eric Coomer is loading up the projector and that tall guy in the back is Bob "Trango" Ternes. Logan is the little guy partially blocked. He's a bit over 6' and about 175 these days, pulling down harder than me.

How are you, Em? Hanging tough I hope!

Careful with the slides, there's Magic in them shots!

I still think of Brutus masterpieces like "The 11 grades of 5.11" (if memory serves, the easiest is 11a and the hardest is .10 OW)

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,

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
