I see a head in the bottom right.

John might be thinking to himself, "I can't hear a word he's sayin'."

I'm walkin' here! I'm walkin' here!"
--Ratso Rizzo

What a Great Memorial Day tribute for the Ladder Lad!

Bump, squish.

Joe and I were deep into understanding the realities of Stoner's Highway When John traversed by on the base level ride.
"Is that Stoner's"? he asked. Uh, yeah we replied not knowing what to say. He smiled and kept going, giving us the quiet respect to new guys on a great climb.

Thanks John !

Whatever happened to John's son? Did JB have an estate to take care of him should John ever have the accident that he did eventually have?

We still miss you, John.

Bump in memoriam.


P.S. I know John's son is in good hands with his mother. John's Father is taking care of the rest. Plus they have Paola backing them up and she is one heck of a woman.

It will never replace a father but it's solid for what it is.

I was climbing today at the Dike Wall for the first time since John passed. I spend some moments in prayer for John, Tyrus and all you who knew and loved him. I climbed better than I had any right to - no doubt John's inspiration.

I am sharing a book with Blitzo that John originally shared with me Love, Medicine, and Miracles. I hope he can gain strength from the remembrance of John as I always have. BTW, The tat is rad

Nice shot, Chris! I am almost certain that shot is from Grant's Wedding in the Summer of 94, Cragar.
