Yeah, and how about some photos from back in the day... always wondered what happened to folks like M. Zotto, Bill, Stan, P. Cowan, Fish, M. Jaffe and many more whose names are no longer in my memory banks... geez I wish I'd taken some pictures. Too much fun to argue out there!

Back around 89 - 90 Jaffe had a kid & his wife would not let him out anymore.

Bob Yoho's behavior at a party of climbers when the kid was about 6 weeks old might have something to do with Jaffe not being let out around any of us ever again. The look of shock on that woman's face. They left shortly there after & I haven't seen Jaffe since.

That's the way I tend to party. Someday I'll have to go back to Stoney and complete my RCS card.

Yabo once said to me that he had more respect for a person that worked & raised a family & could climb 10a, than for some hot shot that climbed hard & could not be polite.
frumy yabo was right! quality vs quanity.

i'd rather read a small print-out guide which is accurate vs some page after page of boched up information guide book!

also: if i was a guide book author toward stoney i'd put Boodawg on the front cover!

Here is my advice, don't use my guide, Throw it away, Use the Katz guide and the other Stoney guide. They are way better for you locals.

Pyro, the current published stoney guide has its fair share of mistakes. Wouldn't you rather spend your time giving that guy sh#t since all the gym rats at The Point carry that around and spray wrong info...

Or better yet, get to top roping those creekside choss piles per usual. YOU ARE RUINING YOUR ONLY GOOD (a personal favorite) THREAD DAMNIT!

this is the owen guide right?
it does have a few mistakes but at least he's been in contact via email and has met up with locals to adjust then perfect the stoney guide. chris owen gives credit to the F.A because he adjusted the ken boche death route which is coming out in the next edition.

the hellwig guide was pretty good also!

P.S i would wright a guide but I feel the right people's need to write the guide of all guide books about Stoney's culture and historical value.

i nominate WAUGH!

Write, no wright... Wright is a name.

Pyro, You are a good man but... Just like spelling, writing a guide isn't as easy as it sounds. Don't criticize others for something YOU haven't accomplished yourself. Lots of people can judge, make noise, but few can actually pull it off, show others how to do it. If you can't do it yourself, don't criticize others for trying. By doing that, no one is going to ever accomplish anything worth keeping since the world is against them.

Now as a climber, you can rock it. Please stick to that. Shove it in their face that they can't follow you, that you can go higher, faster, smoother than most. Just please leave the anger behind. It isn't worth it.

Writing a guidebook is so much work. It's really hard not to make a mistake. Especially about sandstone that is ever changing.
