[I talked to a guy at my gym that said Colorado has wicked easy routes. Maybe you are just climbing those, and got confused about the grade. Anyhow, I think I'm pretty close to getting to talk to a company about sponsoring me. So you obviously have no idea what you are talking about.isn't that like I almost got laid but...

I am also currently invisible.

When you say onsight, you mean you led it first time, clean, without ever having read a book about it or having been told it existed?!

Mad.... ok... still waiting on the bolt gun info... where to buy. OH, did you use it on Heckmaier in 1999 then lost it somehow? maybe you should Base Solo it like Dean Potter did. Then, and only then will you get some street cred

Gabe Walker laughs at your insolence, and then folds his own laughter into an origami swan.

Thats OK, you dont have to belive me. Just because your not pulling hard yet does not mean that others are not. Granted she was on top rope but she never weighted the rope beofer topping out. Keep working though, You can get sponsered.
