Climbing Magazine has done an amazing interview with Pat Ament. It is published in part in the actual magazine, this issue, but they were so impressed with what he said they have published the full interview at their online site (www.climbing.com). The guy is so amazingly literate and insightful, believe me it's worth the read.

We may never know how far-reaching his influence has been, but I am hopeful that this forum on rockclimbing.com and this recent interview, will provide an immediate window to this unique individual. I know my life is better for having known Pat for approaching three decades. His teachings, insight, philosophies, and humor stay with me and have helped me on my own ascent through life.

After reading the interview, what touches you the most about Pat Ament?

What do you think about his life, his achievements and his 40+years of influence on the climbing community?

I'll check that out thanks. That dude's influence spans the generations no doubt. From Robbins prodigee to Graybeard, from controversy to "Little Debbie's Snack Cakes" (I never DID figure out what that meant and I even asked Ament, he didn't either), the dude seems to have kept his finger on the pulse of a good part of this sport.

His Wizards of Rock is THE single most valuable climbing book I own.

Cheers
