I don't know Eric Hörst from anyone, but he makes at least three references to how hard he pulls in a four minute video. If this was a drinking game and the video was twice as long, you'd need to go get your stomach pumped.
Well over on the Nicros site there;s a pic of him on the FA of a 13a/b in the New, he's a La Sportiva Climbing Ambassador for 18 years, and he wrote that How to Climb 5.12 book, so he seems reasonably accomplished. Agreed that 3 references in 4 minutes is quite a bit of spray, but not the worst we've seen by a long shot. Google for the rest of his bio.

There are a lot of reasonably accomplished people out there.

Hahaha...I didn't realize that was two different marc's posting. Thought it was MarcC talking to himself for some unknown reason.

I meant I'm vaguely familiar with him as a climbing figure, but don't have knowledge or strong opinion about him as a person. I'm mostly poking fun without being greatly bothered. I appreciate that self-promotion is part of the game.

Regarding having an argument with myself, it's entirely possible. I wouldn't bother with two accounts to do so. That would be a hassle.

Now you've really gone and confused things!
Yes, I've been known to talk to myself.
MarcC is the name I posted under when I used to post on gunks.com - does that site even still exist? Haven't been there in years ever since Evan went moderation idiotic in that Mohonk thread and I got fed up.
This markc fellow from Pennsylvania is someone that is not me.
Like him, I was only vaguely aware of (nor particularly cared about) Eric Horst - I only did a quick google for this thread.

Truthfully this is rather asinine; Roni's issues with Horst won't be solved or addressed by his posting here.

At most it's just a bit of attention seeking online drama that will provide us with some entertainment.

Hmmm, on second thought Roni's post was brilliant! Way to go Roni!

Too many people don't think about what they are doing. Much like avoiding buying products from China I also avoid buiying guidebooks from Falcon. They are generally quickly made to get the book on the market, and while some area might need that superior guidebooks are generally created by locals.

Maybe now that more people are aware they might spend their money differently.

Who published the most recent Smith Rock guide book by Alan Watts?

Well, that's funny, because all this time on rc.com, I assumed posts made by marcc was you(from Gunks.com).... I knew gunks marc listed Utahas location, and assumed the rc.com marc had an updated location

But there is only one post on rc.com, in 2008, from marcc, who is Marc Chauvin. So....
marcc = my user name on gunks.com (inactive)
marc_c = my user name on firsttracksonline.com (too active)
marc801 = my user name here on rc.com (radioactive, according to some)
markc = some other guy on here

Edit: missed changing their to there after modifying original sentence before posting

whaa?

Click on that guy's name above and there are 2K+ posts, and he lists his name as something other than what you say.


Don't make me fear I have gone prematurely senile. It's coming soon enough as it is, and I'm confident it will not be pleasant.

What was that you said about early onset senility?

(Don't worry - i'll be there before you. This year is one of those big birthdays that end in a zero for me.)

I stay away for a day, and I see you've cleared up all confusion regarding our identities. Happy upcoming birthday, regardless of the number that precedes the 0.

If it helps, there's rumor that a guide book is in the works for Lost City(long accepted as a "guidebook free" crag). That should create brouhaha.


Apparently - it was to be a bouldering guide, and when I asked "someone who would know," it was confirmed. When I asked about roped routes, the reply was more evasive.

I cannot say any more, because I have only heard stuff second hand. But those who I spoke to were reliable sources. It seems to me this will have a lot of potential for butthurt and internet blow-ups.
