I'll play

Famous Climbers I have met.
Alex Honnold, Will Gadd and Barry Blanchard.

Haven't climb with anyone who is more than locally famous.

I belayed Dean on the day of his redpoint and then we went out again with Jimmy Chin to get these shots. No posing though, he climbed the whole thing again in style. I on the other hand had to jug all the pitches.

You're wrong. Getting to share a rope with a famous climber is cool, not because they are famous or sponsored, but because they are good climbers.

My recent climbing with these guys in Iran

Jim Donini, Mark Wilford, Chris Weidner, Branndon Bargo, Mary Ann Dornfeld, Jennifer Fleming, Greg Crouch, and Stephen Alvarez

Jim is strong climber and Mark, ohh boy, he has some balls and Chris is awesome guy.

Wait for National Geographic in Feb 2012 to read about it.

we worked our asses off on that project but it went very well. Having 15+ Americans in Iran wasn't a easy job.

I met Fred Beckey in Washington via a guy that had climbed with him and got his autograph for the record (not sure I still have it now mind).

For me the most famous, as far as famous goes, was my trad lead guide who I completed my one day course with at Squamish.. he must be some what famous he's in the Squamish guide book for some of the first ascents on the Chief

It wasn't my problem, but it was called Doggie Jump.

Wishbone is the steep line at the Bone Town wall at Homestead I bolted, you may have climbed it when you visited, I can't remember much more than you sending everything you tried on Slate Nation.
