I still get a giggle out of this one:

"Let's face it, if you told climbers that sticking their hands up their own arses would mean that skin would regrow faster, tendons would hurt less or grip strength would be improved, we'd all be reaching for the bottle of Crisco."

"Well yes, not having your photo in a magazine does make your opinion less valid. The rules are that for every photo published, then your opinion is worth the equivalent of two chockstone users. And if you have written a guidebook, then it is worth 20 chockstone users. Now because I have co-written the guides with Glenn, I need to halve that amount, but because we have produced two books then my opinion is still worth 20 times more. Now when it comes to photos published, well you also get bonus points for full page shots, posters, coffee table books and covers. Now I am not quite sure what all that adds up to but I am sure my opinion is at least 50 times more valid than yours."

Another gem from Klem Loskot. "What makes it hard to link the moves is not that you get so pumped, but rather it is like being clubbed with a baseball bat".

"When I first started out it was about aggresion, superiority and my own furious competitiveness... I've mellowed with age... I've gone deeper into climbing. It's become about movement, about seeking moments of total control concentration on the rock..."
