On the subject of dry tooling:

Was reading an interview with Yvon Chouinard in which he was asked what he thinks of modern day dry-tooling and mixed climbing

The response was something along the lines of "Dry tooling was something we did when we didn't have a girlfriend"

you described me as a "wussy sport-climbing foo-foo of a girly-man". I am comfortable with that description ... I couldn't agree more.

- Ashy

we get to climb because people put up new routes. We all depend on it. In return, we normally respect other people's efforts, even if we don't agree with their methods.

" Don't bring a Camera, if you fall and die we want no evidence you were with US. "

"Climbing is one of the safest sports known to man, There has NEVER been a climber killed!! ... Once you fall you are technically abseiling."

off topic similar vain.. "There has NEVER been a sea kayaker taken by a shark.. if you come out of the boat you are a swimmer"


What I tell friends or clients before taking them out.

"Bunky" (as in Bunky Bumblef---)

From a letter to Alpinist magazine refering to climbers that have been climbing for 20 years but have only one year of experience 20 times.

edit: my memory is fixed now.

"I'm not designed to hang out on jugs". - CD after getting pumped senseless while trying to onsight warmup on PB, araps.

"I've done my time" - CD referring to a few trad routes he did ground up onsight many years ago to justify why he doesnt like placing gear on routes and shouldn't have to.

"No way man, it'll never go. I'm off this shit" CD moments before sending every project.

*note CD is abbreviation for a chockstone user. Adelaide based.

"Did you bring two camera bodies?"
"Yeah"
"Wanker"

Ken, my climbing partner to be, half an hour after meeting me at 'base camp' in Norway. We got along well
