First time I read that interview. Really nice. I liked the directness of the interviewer, not leaving me questioning what questions he asked.

When I did You Asked For It I tried to do the least amount of damage to the rock in order to get myself up it. Itís only 5.10c, but if you fall off of it at several different points, youíll probably die.
To climb that route and do the least amount of damage I used all the skills I have learned, trained for, and thought about over many years. It can be viewed as an art, the art of admiring the mountain with the skillful use of bolts, of respecting the rock by using as few as possible.
When I was on You Asked For It I wasnít thinking about other people. I was so gripped. I just wanted to get up the rock. I pulled out all my tricks and made it. It was an experience in time, a great adventure. Itís not something I own. Its name and number really donít mean anything.

I mean c'mon. How bad ass was that guy. ^^^
