I remember having a picture book (hard cover) with several pics of a barefoot Skip leading up some hard routes in Colorado(?) Haven't heard his name for a long time!

He must be doing some serious yoga to be able to dip his toes in his chalk bag.

Skip, might have been the most talented rock climber in the world at one point.I think that there are others out there that would agree with me!

I'll pretty much agree. He was a fantastic climber and maybe the best "onsight" climber I've ever seen. He was as good off the sofa as some of the world class daily grinders of the day.

Wow! There used to be vegetation under that boulder! Looks way different today!

I remember when the barefoot craze swept through climbing for a brief period. It was painful as hell, until you built up some callouses. Skip was definitely at the tip of the pyramid in his day.
