Good to see his legend still lives, one of the all time greats.

Rockies.... thanks for posting that.

When John quit school, he moved to Josh. Unlike the rest of us slackers, John started to train HARD. Running, Pullups, miles of free soloing everyday and hard bouldering.... after one winter- the change in his climbing was easy to see.

"Work out" was his motto and if you wanted "IT", all one had to do was start working out everyday.

And you know- He was right.

John, thanks for showing us the way.
Yes, the one thing that his purity really instilled was the full value of putting the time in at the basics, movement strength of body and mind ?

Three cheers for. . ..
For your and my great hero who left us too soon!

Phil Bard's print, #1/25, of MyLittleBachStar soloing On The Lamb hangs in the basket room between my sunroom and the kitchen. I must walk by it no fewer than 50 times a day. . . every single time I do, I say, "Hi YouLittleBachStar!"
