|On a lighter (more esoteric?) note; ....
*Only fall as fast as your guardian angel can fly!
*"Dad, when I grow up I want to climb routes like you do."
~"Son/daughter, you can't do both!"
*The weakest safety component of most climbs is the climber !
*Poor pro on a bold climb is not a fault, it's a feature, and every second on the route is a chance to turn it all around !
*Re free-soloing; Any climber can take off their rope. The question is; How much fun did you have doing it?
*It's not what you climb - It's how you climb it.
*On self preservation; Life is a good thing. It's a better thing when you use your rack.
Ö or conversely ... A lack of self preservation is worth about a rack of nuts.
*The hell with the elegant way up, take the hard way !
*It isn't the conditions itís the decisions, so if you're gonna be dumb, you better be tough.
*SCARS are Tattoos with Better Stories!
*"If you can't be a good example -- then you'll just have to be a horrible warning."
*For as we get older, it is not the things we did that we often regret, but the things we didn't do ....... GET OUT THERE AND DO IT!
*Live to climb and climb to Live.
*Adventure Has No Destination
