Great insights... especially about how it isn't over after you get your onsight... Lucky Luke may disagree.

LL, you are more stupid than I thought!!! I know Steph and have seen her onsight 5.12 trad. What is your hardest onsight you dope? I also had the privilege of following her on incredible handcrack and I can only dream about being as good and as smooth as her on anything, sport or trad.

LMFAO. Hes calling Steph a sport climber and this forum will still entertain his rants.

LL, you never answered my question about the head injury. Seriously, only thing that redeems you IMO (if the rumor is true).

It is  semantics. Luke just has a very narrow minded definition of what "trad" is. He is of course welcome to it and enjoying what he likes. The moral superiority he seems to attach to his view is what is so annoying, along with his obsessiveness.

DMan, your line of questioning is very rude, IMO, no matter how annoying Luke can be. I think the veil of the internet may be getting the better of you.

You're right. I'll ask him in person next time I see him.

Probably.  At least smart enough to avoid the quagmire around here.  Most of the time.
