PTPP be da man. I fully endorse him as the Perfect Wall Climber, especially as a partner. He has too much patience for his own good, and will put up with all manner of Gumbyesque behavior. Plus, he has his systems down. The idea of dedicated lockers for each and every thing works very well. Now then, if I can just clean as fast as he leads A3+, we'll be OK.

I have some PTPP cams that were slightly damaged in the Cratered Pig Incident. RARE! Two #9 Valley Giant Old School given to PTPP after Excalibur. These cams were given to PTPP for his "guiding services", and later had the trigger wires bent to schnitt when the Amazing Flying Whale fell 800 feet off Scorched Earth. They have been fixed by the original manufacturer, and are certified as being Near New. Buy now, before they get posted to eBay.

Those 9" cams are NOT for sale, as they were earned by putting up with a BWG. [He may be a BWG, but at leasdt he didn't drop the frickin' pig, now did he? Sheesh.]

Anne did not merely touch my butt, she gave it a rather nice fondle as I recall.

In fact, she liked my butt so much she ... well, ya just had to be there, I guess.





The Doc will of couse be offering his *free* Dr. Piton Mini-Big Wall Tutorials in Yosemite this May and June, though people who attended these tutorials last May and June or these tutorials last August and September are probably well aware that little in life is truly *free*.

However, the Doc works cheaply and some of those who have thus far made the investment to schlep a pig or offer a beer have found their investment returned many-fold, especially if they were looking to learn a few rigging tricks or how to solve a big wall problem.

However I have learned recently I have left at least one person a bit disappointed, and I appreciated him letting me know. It was unintentional. Sometimes I spread myself a bit too thinly, and that was evidently one of those times.

Although I will be making a formal announcement later, you can mark your calendars for Saturday May 24 in Camp 5, Curry Village.





Caveat:

On those rare occasions when Dr. Piton chooses to w*rk [sorry, not part of my vocabulary] he is known to sell investments in the stock market. Investment performances may fluctuate, and it is safe to say that a few of my clients are more than a little disappointed and have complained. Fortunately I build redundancy into every system, and have only sold Segregated Funds which guarantee the capital.

As far as Mini-Big Wall Tutorials are concerned, most "clients" have told me they benefited, so I figure that's pretty good, considering the monumental favours I am known to ask.

"Greater love hath none than this - that he pick up a pig for his friend."

Carpe swinem!

With thanks,

Pete

Yeah, Pete is good people. I never took the opportunity to touch his butt, however did enjoy touching the butt of one of his consenting female wall partners. A little more Baileys and she would have offered to touch a little more as well.

Unfortunately I won't be there to schlep in May due to the fact that I don't hold residence in the Valley and won't be permitted to hold said residence until mid-August. But in October, it's on.

TRADitionally yours,

If you dont have anything nice to say ...........! There is enough negative enegry around so why add to it? I think it strange that a person who quotes Nietzsche also talks about their astrological sign (seems selective eh). I dont think anyone here claimed Pete was a sacred painting or religious master etc. We are just giving him credit for all the work he does. HEY PETE THANKS FOR ALL THE HARD WORK. I LOVE YOUR POSTS. By the way Nietzsche was against pollitically correct phrases like "false icon". For Nietzsche Truth is subjective, " Truth is the Greatest Error."

Arrr-dee-arrr, may-tee!

Just you wait, Catra, til I publish the photos of the Infamous Big Sur Ledge Keg Party of May, 2001!

Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!!!

And Michelle, I am far from being a "heavenly host." Rather, I aspire to be diabolical.......

Well, dang - look at this. "Cat"s and "Lynx"s in the very same post.

Miaow....

Like thanks, eh?

I'll know where to look for you, mate - you'll be the one with the cartoon cloud of smoke pouring out of your ass as you go flying up the wall setting new speed records on the Big Stone!

Be sure to stop by some morning for coffee if you're in the neighbourhood, eh? Me and Tom'll be on Bermuda Dunes near the end of May, and plan a slacker day on El Cap Spire [HINT]

As for me, I aspire to continue setting new speed records, like this one on Hans' speedclimbing website.

Stop by Camp 5 for a beer, eh?

Cheers, mate!

That's funny. I heard that with the right enticement, the good doctor might be persuaded to give a few private lessons?? Anybody else hear about that?? Something about ..........

Note: I climb solo because I can. However, were a shagadelic hottie with a heart of passion, a lust for adventure, and the courage to stand behind her convictions approach me with a reasonable offer, I just might be convinced to share my ledge.... Generally speaking, though, this is next to impossible, as I am extremely selective with my partners. The "plain vanilla" need not apply.

Pete,

What is up with your obsession with this ONE LINER:

"ya barnacle-bitten scurvy-dog"

Where did it come from? Why do you think it applies to me? AND when will it GO AWAY?

It was in reference to our frequent bouts of "pirate talk" on the big wall. It's gone. Sorry, mate.

Uh-oh, someone's been doing her homework......

You salty dogs! I make a living on the big blue but My hats off to the Good Dr. Pitons. He has made me realize I solo not because I have no friends but because
1. I can and
2. I am bitchin!
(said as I look in to the mirror and force a fake smile)

I have read over 100 pages of this guys work, Yes Thanks Brother!
Thank You Much,
Bill
