This is my first post on this forum and I came here to hopefully find some stories or memories about my uncle. I'm hoping someone here has at least heard of him. His name was Eric guokas and he was a climber in the 80's. If you have heard of him or knew him I'd just like to hear about him and how he influenced rock climbing. Thanks

Not a lot of information, but I found an old thread for you.

Not sure if you're a climber and know about some of the other sites that may have information? But here is a short piece from Alpinist:

I never met him. I worked with a guy in Boulder named Eric Doub who was one of his partners. He spoke often of your uncle and I was sorry not to have known him. In one of the very early Rock and Ice Magazines, probably an issue number less than 20, and it has a great article with some stories about your uncle in it, about coming of age in Colorado as a climber. Another guy who would remember your uncle was Christian Griffith, also still around Boulder I think.
