Comments: Nice pic Sketchy. Real purty body jewelry. But if you were looking for some shiny bling wouldn't it have been cheeper to frequent the gumball machine with the shinny plastic rings at Wally World? Best of wishes for you. Hey can you get them to switch your IV with a margarita drip?

Holler if you need anything.

Comments: I think this is an appalling development. I can't believe that real climbers either through ignorance or arrogance would endeavor to diminish the proud tradition of fierce ascents in Escalante. Chuck would eat them for breakfast were he to encounter them. They need to take a good hard look in the mirror and become educated as to the history of the area. There are plenty of obscure choss piles that the weak of head and heart can drag down to there level.
I say hands off the historical areas like ... more >>

Comments: According to the Adventure Film folks the search has only been suspended for bad weather. At least the American lads will go back up to continue. Slim hopes for a happy outcome but they mean to bring our brothers home. Jonny learned to walk in Tibet. It is powerfully poignant that Jonnys last steps were in the same country that his first were.

Comments: Yikes Moss! Reading that chilled me to the bone. Perhaps only an old GunnyBun can realize just how epically brutal that would have been. Glad you are still here.

The fact that Bob leaving wasn't your first clue is a wee bit baffling I must admit.

Comments: Fairly sure I led this nice climb in the later '70s. No idea if it was a FA or not but the conditions I saw were exactly as MossMan described, cobwebs and grapple.

I am sure you were all "Aware of Alcohol" like the posters says.

Comments: In that case you should know that when I grow up I am going to look just like Brad Pitt.

Actually I amazingly remember that day. There were several cameras that day so there should be other shots out there. I also think I recognize myself in the tree climbing shot. But I know I recognize you in it.
