Oh cool, there's a dude with the same first and last name as me that lives in Tansania and who uses Instagram to post pictures of himself skinning goats! WE LIVE IN THE FUTURE!

Definitely the homeless guy I heard on Joe Rogan. Hobo George, I think. Been climbing a while, like 4 years or so.

When you've got a dirtbag brand to sell you've got to pedal hard.

Just about everyone I know that climbs has had a good chuckle about this.

I remember it now. He posted a picture of himself soloing some cliff wearing a harness and a full rack of draws. When asked why he was soloing with gear, he said “looks good for pictures.” Obviously a lot of ribbing ensued. 

For posterity

Let’s not forget a few more of the classics. Always nice to stroll down mp memory lane.

Super stoked by the removing of anything helpful or decent from someone like Tony Robbins, taking out anything authentic or honest from social media posts / influencers and then seeing what you’re left with.

I strive for the live and let live approach, but this was all particularly cringe inducing.

I suppose if it was just jet skiing, zip lining, or adventure rappelling I would happily pass along a Shaka brah.

It’s just the crass and effortless co-opting of something that bugs me. I appear to be an old curmudgeon overly protective of what I think climbing represents, even though still solidly rocking Gumby status.

I will say, If Important issues like access come up, I really don’t want to see or hear from someone like this, or have this type or imagery be representative to anyone of what climbing is.

Whether they’re laughing with me or at me, I’m happy.

Well shucks, thanks man. Means a lot, I put everything of me into those images. I’m a way better photographer than climber anyhow!

I unfortunately climbed with that dude once. It was a terrible experience watching him  have photo shoots as he TRd on my line. Luckily, I no longer climb with the person who knew him-- who apparently didn't like him either...so now that I think about it...idk how he got the invite lol.
