I write to tell to you that I read Rock & Ice article about Sven Lavransen. It say he not real, but I was his roommate in Boulder and make many good flash with Sven of hard route 5.12+ and more in Indian Creek, Colorado, Boulder area too, in early 2000s.

Sven could no climb after rotator cuff tear and surgery in 2004. He get very sad and move from Boulder. Could no stand to be around many who climb. I do no know where he live, but I hear he now just smoke the green herb and play video game in Australia. This is very sad to me. Sven was my good friend and sport climb partner.

If you want know more about his 4-plan for make hard and hard flash on more route, I tell you good. 4-plan was very good train for make flash hard route. Sven train this way before he tear shoulder. I think Rock & Ice article pretty good to explain this overall, but 4-plan work so well only after Sven try so hard, much more effort than normal person.

Finnegan, I can no tell the beta to you for hands of destiny. On this day Sven make very enjoyable flash for himself, I no climb this day. The reason there is for this I try too hard with make the preparation for my 4-plan, and I strain my finger, needing much rest over the week comings.

On this day I do belay Sven on Hands of Destiny. I see him climb effortlessly like graceful angel, as if no exerting the force on any holds.

I also tell to you please to tell me, if anyone know how to reach Sven Lavransen. I very much like to speak with my old friend and partner for the sport climb. I also like to know whether he start the climbing again after his shoulder injury and if he make any hard flash in Australia.

Sven tell to me once, "It's not the routes in your 4-plan, it's the effort and determination in your 4-plan for excellent making of the next flash"

Since I am no doing the climbing sport with Sven a no more, I go for climbings yesterday in honor Sven.

I make very enjoyable hard flash of 13D route My Significant Other in Clear Creek Canyon. Much fighting through difficult crux along steep arete with many hold type on the climbing rocks. I almost come off but then remember how hard Sven must would of try if he climb this, and my forearms becomes refreshed.

Aleks, please regale us with your epic tales of bold and daring flashes! I also miss Sven and his stories of making pumping flashes with the 4-point plan.

Sven was the cousin to Ren Hoek! He looked out of shape back when he appeared on that TV show with his cat Stimpy. ;)

I wish Aleks luck, but I think the orignal Sven is going to be a hard act to follow.
