The greatest climbing scam of all time...

I tripped over the photo below (again) tonight while looking for something else on a thread;

This got me to wondering about climbing scams, and I reckon this one would have to be right up there if it isn't the greatest.

Anyone know of any better?

to fill in for afjclark; how is this a "scam"?
Simey used his real name, they climbed a route and got down safe.

I would've called it the greatest wind up or pisstake or something. Wasn't there a longer version of the story on super topo or something?

Unless there's more to the story than Simey's telling us?
