Last time I saw Rich,he had led Heather. That one is 12b,and listed as well protected,he seemed pretty psyched about it. I don't think anyone would argue that either Rich or John don't have many fine,bold ascents to their credit,I know I wouldn't.I also doubt very much Rich walked up and sent any of Strand's bolder climbs. You have the comprehension problem dood,they are not topropes.

Bolting is prohibited at the Gunks, and no one takes a kit to the Winds.

After Tom Callahan and John Stand toproped the route in July, 1988, John Strand led the route in November 1988.


sorry no comprehension problem.  keep thinking so if it makes you feel better because you have nothing else to come back with.

We all know who John Strand is. Does anyone know "rightcross" or does he always hide behind a pseudonym? BTW, I've known and respected Rich Romano for over 30 years. His ascents of hard scary sh*t in the Gunks (often in adidas or the like), especially at Millbrook, have left me in awe, as have many of his ascents across the breadth of North America. That doesn't remove the fact that in the case of his accident, several lamentable errors of judgement were made, leaving him and Miriam with great emotional and physical trauma. Name calling and blame passing won't change either of those situations. I apologize to the previously damaged horse, but the personal attacks and vitriol expressed anonymously sicken me.   Jeff Lea

People – get your act together.

I would assume that Myriam knew that publishing her inner monologue would cause some waves and I think it is good so b/c she touched ppl one way or the other.

However, what’s going on now on this forum is at best described as ridiculous (yup, I know, I am putting a target on my chest).  I think the only two ppl who are entitled to having this particular fight are Myriam and Strand.  I hope that Myriam knows better than caring about all the crap that is said on an online forum. 

I wish Myriam and Rich all the best and hope we could all learn from this accident and put the horse to rest.
