Comments: HANK! Wow, been a long time. I don't know if you knew Russell Hopper from OKC, but I just found out he died of cancer. It's sad to lose another one of the old crew.

Anyway, glad to see you are still with the sport. I'm just kinda getting back into it after a 15 year hiatus. Not sure why, but it's sucking me back in. I'll be teaching Sharma a thing or two here shortly, kidding. Guys and gals are really tearing it up these days. Amazing.

Comments: Back in the day, if you were going to give Desdichado a go, you only brought draws up with you, doing C'est La Vie the fun way--runout! lol!

A tip for the start of Desdichado--clip the second pin (may be gone now) in the dihedral and layback the pocket/edge hold on Desdichado with the right hand to clip the bolt, and then pull back into the dihedral and downclimb back to the ledge for a shake out.

Comments: This route was bolted by a couple old friends of mine--Curt Fry and Steve.... Can't remember his name exactly. We called him Babar (we all had nicknames for each other, and he had large ears). Anyway, I actually accidentally stole the FA from Steve when he wanted me to check it out and hang the draws for him as I did--unfortunately, I couldn't help but be in onsight mode, and I found myself looking at the anchors. I asked him if I should pop off, and he told me to go ahead and finish it. Origina... more >>

Comments: Wow! Tony Karzen!!!! Man has it been a long time. A little story... Tony and I were roommates for a bit back in HS. After HS, we ran into each other while he was going to CU and I was living in Boulder. At any rate, we did a little climbing together, and I thought the obvious line would be a nice gift for a first FA for Tony. Originally my intent was to put it up on lead, but hooking the first knob and drill smacking 2" Rawls in kinda turned out to be above my thrill factor. So, Tony and I took ... more >>
