Kris - 'Isaac, I know this is going to suck, but can you wrap your leg around the rope real quick for this shot? Isaac, quit crying out to God and do it! I am about to make you a star! Make sure you yell 'OH FU*@' instead of Cheese. Why does everyone around here say cheese for pictures anyway?' Isaac - 'OH FU*@'and then whips... Kris - 'NICE Isaac! Got it!' and then checks to see how the shot turned out. Kris - 'Isaac.. That was awesome! Uhhh... Isaac? You OK?'
I categorically deny this false interpretation of the incident, as Kryz well knows my vengeful spirit would rise up from the grave to smite him. Sadly I can only attribute this to my own stupidity, stubbornness, and lack of control at a crucial moment. Only a fool makes the same mistake twice, and I hope to never make this one again.
The funny thing is, I think we have all seen Kris go to great lengths so that we can all be in awe over his cool picture taking skills. Though, these usually happen to be cool landscapes... Now he has moved on to hair raising action photos! Isaac, I still commend you on your attempt. I remember a good 15 years back, taking some good whippers on a climb that people would say I was "not up to" or they would say that "I had a lack of good judgment". Kris was always cool though. Never anything but encouragemnet with a splash of good sarcasm. and if I recall, Kris never sugar coats a climb. His beta always made me scared to even get on a climb!

I rated this "Great" because of the conversation. Sorry about the fall, but thanks for the laugh!
Bored at work today but man this photo certainly perked me up again - holy shit that looks scary. Isaac I tip my hat to you - if it were me I'd probably never want to be reminded of this moment again but you seem to have a great attitude about it all and it all makes for quite an amusing story...
