I too have climbed with Lucky Jacques, and he is indeed a skilled dood and good partner. My first time out with him he dug deep and managed Duet Direct onsight without a fall. He's actually pretty good and a decent guy.

BRING SOME SMALL CAMS!

Yeah Nick, I was talking about climbing with Jacques, he doesn't have many small cams. Most old school guy I know.

That's so funny Brochu, good reminder why I don't log in here much....

I was trying to remember when Luck Luke actually made disparaging remarks directed to a specific individual on a personal level and I don't remember any. I do remember him helping a climber in distress at Cathedral one day. He does bring up controversial topics and opinions that do stimulate conversation. I'm not sure but maybe there is a lesson in there about playing nice in the sandbox if we care to look closely at it from which we can learn something.

97 is a good run, but as Captain Kirk told Scotty: "I WANT that third option!"

Rob pumped out, fell, and then was too tired to send it, so you can like him even if he is a young bastard at 40....we did manage 11 pitches although short including a bunch of 11's and one 12a. Fortunately I had the home court advantage so age and treachery overcame youth and strength.

Went bouldering with Stevie J today at the Sun Cave, new crazy highball finish to the Hueco Simulator that we worked on a toprope.   Easier, maybe only V5 but like 35 feet off the ground with the sloper crux at the top.  Gonna need about three feet of snow and helium up my ass to boulder that one. 

You gotta come down this fall.  I've seen you climb so i know you can do it.

Age, wisdom, and treachery always trump youth and strength, Ward!

I'm thinking ol' Walter was working on a lot more than just "three options..."

Photo of Wally, last fall  at age 96...  I didn't get any of the details, but he did tell me, he "didn't need me to give him a ride home..."

Seems a whole lot more impressive than any over-the-head heel hook, any day, any way....

ps.I just heard that Rich Gerbert (sp?), Don Nelligen's co-owner of Eagle Bluff also passed away, all so sad.
