Which way again?
I don't have all day to re-tell Scott's enormous list of helpful things he's been involved in, I have to polish up my magic thesaurus and work on my choreography to my interpretive dance performance to "Lucky Star". However:

This guy deals with government horsepuckey with patience where many of us couldn't.

He replaces anchors on routes and rarely sees beer for it.

The man literally cleans up after grown adults who have the same relative poop maintenance/management skills of a 14-month old.

He's spearheading the graffiti removal we're all so tweaked about.

I have to mention offwidth boulder problems. Rad.

So you lazy lurkers, come out of the shadows and post up some Scott Massey love!

PS Scott you'll notice I left off all the embarrassing stuff. Now we're even for the Archi's incident.

Growing a winter coat in Red Rock Canyon- December...
Scott Massey has a very good, and strong work ethic; The kind of work ethic you would have seen in pioneers of the Old West, and in folks who helped build this country. It's refreshing to see, as there's so many lazy, non-productive, and self-centered people around these days. Dirty Gri Gri, or is it GiGi?

I've lived here in Vegas for two years and always hear his name as one of the movers and shakers. Thanks. Hope to meet you some day, if I haven't already and didn't know it. thedogfather

Agreed, Scott is a solid dude and is deserving of some mad props. He's even offered me the last 1/4 of his PBR after a day of climbing once, which I accepted joyfully. Matt Kuehl

Aw, ya'll are making me blush. K, I told you not to start this thread... dogfather, I met you at the 11 Feb trail day - i was the one with my arm in a sling taking pictures. RE: that 1/4 PBR - I drink quickly, so I wasn't just offering MK the backwash. Really. Gigi, thanks but I think it's just an obsession. I'm really a lazy person at heart. Everyone else, thanks for the props. Hope to see ya'll out climbing once I'm healed up. smassey

Face it, you deserve positive attention just as much as I do the negative attention. I'm surprised we're not on page ten already. If this was the Why Killis Is A Dick thread, we'd be there, sipping Haterade at the finish line.

BUMP!

Who else got some Scotty love? This man is an icon! A male model! A person who has interesting facial hair! Post up...

Coming out of lurk-dom to express my thanks to Scott. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. Red Rock is one of my favorite places. I appreciate your hard work and would be happy to buy you a beer or 3 the next time I'm in the area. Cheers to you, dude. Marcy

Having Scott here in Las Vegas has been a real asset for us climbers. I'm glad that I now have a proper venue to express my appreciation!

Thanks for all you have done for Red Rock, Scott. Every time I "go to the bathroom" in the desert backcountry, I'll be thinking of you!

And folk call Killis a hater. . . . I wouldn't know Killis from Scott Massey, but I'm pretty sure I like them both.

Thanks for all the efforts.

He's shorter than I am, and has short hair. He pisses people off, I try to be nice. etc. etc. Thanks for the love, everyone.

Pissing people off is better than pissing ON people, amigo. I'm Captain Manners, compared to R.Kelly. Be interested to hear about the future plans, hope we get to do that splitter before you jet. SO wide. SO nasty. You're gonna love it. Cunning Linguist
