It's unlikely that anybody that fat is a famous climber.

Edit: I climbed with camhead once.

I climbed with camhead too!
I climbed with that jerk too.

I eventually pawned him off on my husband and climbed with clausti instead until we needed him to retrieve our draws off of a climb we couldn't finish.

ZING!

You're probably going to win this competition. Legends, one and all.

Yea, I almost had to climb with that poser clamhed at teh Red. Luckly I saw him, before he saw me and I ducked back into my rig and drove out of teh parking lot, before I had to waste my entire day listening to him spray me down about how bitchin he is.

EDIT: I ALMOST got to climb with Tripper Jim! Definitely would have been the most famous climber I've ever been near.

Caughtinside? The guy who wrote that article on the front page?!

I climbed with J_ung once at his local roadcut.

That's the guy, yeah! Although once he's dead he should be a hell of a lot more famous!

Tell us though, how deep does Jay's shaft really go?

In 1978, I tried Clever Lever in Eldorado Canyon, while Pat Ament watched me (while drinking beer and shouting beta).
In 1980, I climbed with Wolfgang Gullich for two weeks in Eldorado Canyon. He was on a mission to climb all of the 5.12s.
In 1982, I had a cool bouldering sesh with Wolfgang and John Bachar on the Camp 4 boulders.
In 1984 or so I climbed with John Sherman in Yosemite (Crack a Go-go and Separate Reality).
In 1992, I shared a belay on the Nose with Hans Florine and Peter Croft while they achieved their landmark ascent in 4:22.
In 1995, I shared a bivy up on Half Dome with Todd Skinner.
In 2006, Henry Barber came to our Quartz Mountain Gathering and although I didn't share a rope with him, I climbed nearby and yakked with him for a couple of days.

I have climbed with teh kamhed at both the gunks and mt. woodson. Judging by (a) this thred and (b) everything he says about himself, he is quite famous and possibly the best climber on the planet.

That's one of way becoming an aids climber without ever stepping foot in étriers.

Is true! Just ask Jrathfon.

Hung out with Daniel Woods and his GF at Rumney one day this summer, then I gave them a ride to the gas station where their car was towed to. Both really nice kids.

Ran into Fred in August in the bugs. at 80 some years old he made the hike up to the hut look easy.

didn't climb with him (probably one of the few from what I hear) but he sure as hell impressed me on the hike in. I don't think he ever broke a sweat.

I'm hope I'm doing that good when I'm that age. Hell, I hope I just live that long.
