Comments: Is this new bolt true or is it a troll? Did Chuck Burr go against the opinion of the whole climbing community? What is this guy thinking? Say it ain't so!

Comments: Tom Pulaski and I did the 2nd free ascent of the DW the weekend following Ed & Bryan's ascent. Tom had looked at that line for years. We thought we had a first ascent until I ran across a few chalked holds. The rock was so bad it was hard to imagine anyone being there ahead of us. Every pitch shed rock like fleas from an old cur dog. While we were ascending there was some campers pitched directly below the route. There was nothing we could do, and, even from 1500' up, we could still hear their v... more >>

In the spirit of not further inflaming the situation, I will state my position on a few of the matters thus far discussed, and then I will bow out of the discussion.

No one is trying to trash Potter's reputation, he did that himself!
The vast majority are simply expressing their displeasure with his bad choice of action. When you look at all the climbers including prominent names who are opposed to what Dean did it is somewhat funny that you still so tightly cling to your minority opinion. It is like you are trying to ride a dead horse. Giddy up horsie. True to your M.O. you go on the offensive when people disagree with you. To differ in opinion is perfe... more >>

Thank you for your comments I do take them seriously. However...
Your concern that the following statement was me putting words in Deans' mouth are unfounded.

I also take issue with this quote:
Dean's Statement that NO ONE reveres rock as much as he does are his own words according to Patagonias' press release.

My own opinions on this issue are abundantly clear, so I will refrain from further incitement. Thanx again

Comments: Well I stand by all my previous statements! Nothing I have said compares to the damage done by Deans public ascent. Dean broke the rules and regulations of the NPS and flaunted it publicly. Remember use of WHITE chalk was and is specifically banned. Professional photo shoots require NPS permitting. AND there was NO ALLOWED climbing on named features. I had my father in law read through all of this for his opinion. He is an attorney of some renown. He has defeated the IRS and the DOD and several ... more >>

P.S. to Phil Broscavak. I have enjoyed all the contributions you have made to this website over the last few years (especially the Black Canyon stuff), but you are really going over the top in these threads. You should look back at some of your posts--the vitriol is beyond belief and borders on libelous at times. You are certainly entitled to your opinion as is anyone else, but your diatribes and the constant invective are what really elevate this to an on-line lynch mob m... more >>

Your arguments reek of the same double speak that the republicans use to justify their illegal activities. Take your own advice and chill out. If you think people have to have an impressive resume to have a right to be critical of Dean go ahead and ask about me.
No one is trying to send Dean down in flames. They are just very unhappy with the potential ramifications of his (ILLEGAL) indiscretion. T H A N K S D E A N ! ! !

Comments: Bob you are very correct. I know that this arch was ascended in absolutely pure style, ie; no ropes, no chalk, no press, in the mid seventies. The perpetrator, my best friend, later died in an avalanche in Canada. Dean's Statement that NO ONE reveres rock as much as he does is utterly arrogant self serving BS!

Comments: Here is my response to the bulk email Patagonia sent me regarding DP on DR.

With all due respect you are totally WRONG! Dean scrambled through a loop hole in the NPS legalese. The NPS will be sure to clarify the language in the future. How does NO CLIMBING sound? Clear, concise, to the point and unmistakable. What about the use of white chalk? Is there any vagary in their wording on that issue? AND what about the use of a rope for descent? doesn't the use of a rope put this selfish act into the... more >>

Tommy Caldwell, Topher Donahue and Erik Roed free-climbed the 4000 foot route Linea di Eleganza on Fitz Roy at 5.12+, onsighting the second ascent of the Patagonian route in a single, team-free push.

Starting up at 11 a.m. and climbing through the night, they reached the summit of Fitz Roy at 3 p.m. the following day. See climbing magazine's hot flashes for details.

Comments: Here is a scenario. A herd of tuoronasaurus photographicus are milling around the base of delicate arch on a typical Arches scorcher. From the crowd emerges a wild haired youth. He is on summer vacation with his parents. He is wearing his Dean Potter chinos and Dean Potter polo shirt. He sports an empty but oh so fashionable Dean Potter chalk bag. The chalk bag is empty as new Park Service regulations require leaving all nail clippers, climbing paraphenallia and "chalk" at check point Potter be... more >>

Comments: Brian,
That is absurd! Ed Abbey would be appalled as this act will only mean more draconian rules and regulations for all of us! The whole Hayduke M.O. was to NOT be seen or caught. They weren't flying a big banner with their names on it off of the house boats. And they weren't filming a promotional video of their exploits in monkey wrenching. I don't have a problem with an independent will, free spirit, or bandito approach. And I don't have a real problem with a delicate ascent. I can assure yo... more >>

But compared to Damn Pooters' high ball of the Delicate Farce where do you think the press coverage will fall?
Hats off to Tommy, Topher and Eric for reminding the crash pad crazed proletariat what inspired ascent is really about.

Comments: I always wanted to climb the Washington Monument and the White House. Do you think they will mind? After all I am an American and can climb where and when I want to, right? While I am at it I think I will whip up a bald eagle egg omelet. I can cook it on the JFK eternal flame.
A spiritual adventure my ass. This was a photo-op and a shameless act of self agrandizment! Dean, you are a great climber why do you have to blow your load for 45 feet of bullshit? Would you still have done it if NO ONE wa... more >>

Comments: When driving towards the 2nd buttress your eye will be drawn to the huge roof and prominent leftward leaning corner system. Directly below these features is the Sugar Cube an obvious and well named boulder on the crag side of the road. Parking will be apparent. The leftward leaning corner is Angles Away. Directly through the huge roof is the incipient cracks of Roofer Madness. This is an old Rosholt aid climbing test piece. Beginning from the right side of the Angles Away start and S curving a... more >>

Comments: Tourist Attraction is a fun little route with a little bit of everything. A veritable smorgasboard of techniques. This route is a great beginners climb. Either as an easy to set up top rope or an early, perhaps even 1st, trad lead. Good stances between harder sections gives the climber time to contemplate the future. Excellent pro can be found all over this little gem. After the short right facing corner near the top follow the easy cracks that trend back right and up to the sundeck. While you a... more >>

The first day of the climb ended with us rapping to Sherwood Forest and collecting cactus stalks for a New Years Eve fire side bivouac. In the morning after ascending our fixed lines the first substantial pitch of climbing was a delicate face traverse left and up into a grav... more >>

Comments: Hello Gigette,
I would agree that both pitch 4 and pitch 5 involve significant movement to the right. Of the two, pitch 4 traverses the furthest right. If you were to drop plumb bobs from the start and end points of pitch 4 it would easily be 25 feet or more. I have led that pitch twice and have found sufficient good gear to feel fairly at ease. It is an up and over route and gear finding adventure. Yes there are spans of no pro but by tying together discontinuous cracks with tricams, wired stop... more >>
