Does anybody know why Bloom hates Johnny Varco so much?

In the Bloom guide he says that this climb was made famous by "male model" Johnny Varco "posing" on it. I do believe that Johnny Varco was a legit badass and offwidth crusher with lots of hard hard climbs under his belt, particularly in Zion. Anybody know why the slight from Bloom?

I was curious about that as well. What a terrible description for an excellent route!

I think it's more good-natured ribbing than malicious. The hard-charging off width climbing community can come off as a bunch of pricks if you don't realize they're taking the piss. And some are also just assholes. But it's really hard to tell which at first glance.
