So, is that "stupid and dangerous?" Or is that "owning it?"

I've heard he has already been signed up by BD and Sportiva to replace Joe Kinder.

Apparently to climb like that, you must have an unnatural attraction to cat food.

Weird but I was downtown yesterday and people were gathered like there was a jumper or something, turns out it was Rocky Raccoon.

But how did he get the rope up there?

He was a true gerber baby with a bright future in big building soloing

Goats are great solo climbers, but they are not quite at the level of this raccoon.   Best I've seen a goat do is a 5.13c.  Rocky seems to have mastered a 5.17.

Is this somewhere in the black mining hills of Dakota?

It's in St. Paul, MN

Apologies to Brad Gobright for comparing the Raccoon to Alex and not him.  We all know Gobright sends pant-less just like this little guy.  :) 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
