Ordered some rope bags from Yates directly last week ($#@$@ online gear stores didn't have the ones I wanted), and when they arrived they had thrown in some of the catalogs. (good rope bags BTW)

Lo and behold, but what did I see on the front page of the 2003 glossy catalog but.. A younger Zabrok on Iron Hawk! Couldn't believe me eyes ;)

For all those skeptical folks out there, here is a huge honkin' img for ya. ;)

Congrats on being famouser pete!

By the way that looks like the same location as he was filmed in the Don Reid video - any truth to that rumour Pete?

Thanks for the heads up, Jesse.

I honestly had no idea about the Yates catalogue! Sheesh. [But a pleasant surprise]

I signed another release for Chris Falkenstein this year, but I thought it was for another aid climbing video. We shall see...

What!?? You didn't know that YOU were on the cover of the Yates catalog? I can't believe it. No way. There were copies in the mountain shop this summer. Haven't you been paying attention, or are you more concerned with announcing slide shows by the Hubers?


Dude, you ARE rad!!! Way cool. We should celebrate!!!!

YOU can't believe it?! *I* frickin' couldn't believe it! But I sh*t you not.

The funniest part was, after the Hubers' slide show, I was talking to John Yates. He was showing me the product improvements to his adjustable daisies [I made notes, need to write the post] and he even gave me one of his Yates Rockers to use on Never Never Land, in exchange for writing up a report on it.

Anyway, he didn't have the product bulletin for the Rocker, so I went into the Mountain Shop the next day, and asked them if they had a Yates catalogue, which they told me they didn't have.

And not one person mentioned I was on the cover!

[When did that thing come out, anyway?]

So truely [sic] my jaw hit the floor when lazide wrote about it here, as it was the first I'd heard of it. h

Too funny!

[Celebrate? Sheesh. Have another beer. I am.....]

Actually, it depends where you come from. The initiated and the English say "Catalogue." Average Joes say "Catalog."

And that's why every climbing CATALOG that you've ever seen is spelled CATALOG, right? Ooops! I guess I'm just referring to America. That is where I'm posting from, ya know. Those other "catalogue" companies spell however they please. Am I going to have to teach you how to drink Budweiser and shoot a 12-gauge?

I don't care how you spell theater... it's all for homos anyways. Boring as hell. Bunch of foof balls, they are. Get out and do something. Being a spectator sucks.

Yeah, colorful as a rainbow...

Who the hell is the Queen? And who invented the English language in the first place? That Shakespeare guy? Spock would disapprove; way too illogical. Whatís up with this Special K schist, anyways? Itís nife, and Iíll stab you with it, unless you are a gnite in shining armor, rather than the gnome that I presume you to be.

My blood is mostly English but the only Queen I know is on the face of the card that was just flipped (at this very moment) to some dumbass (who never learned statistics), downtown at any one of the casinos that pay my state income tax. Go fish.



And besides, I thought you Canadians were either a slab of bacon on the griddle or a lily-sittin' fly-zappin' amphibian... Oh, well, at least you are good at saying "rivet!"

Yes, in a typing drag race, you would smoke me. On a guitar neck, things might be different. A question: When was the first guitar neck invented and when was the first (typing) keyboard invented?

Coffee tastes about as good as the black tar that oozes from the exhaust of my 2-stroke dirt bike.

Frets are for weinies. Real musicians tune by ear - be it fretless bass, or trombone slide. Pull in the third, drop the fifth.

Dude, it is long after "changeover time" - hours since I had any coffee.

I'm on "Blue Fin" 2002 California chardonnay - from Trader Joe's, natch. You? Along with swiss cheese fondle-due and caraway rye. [If you can't make it in the microwave, it ain't food. Do I need a woman in my life, or what? Sheesh.]

Yes, I would have to agree, you wEEnie. I have played a fretless bass and it was cool. The guitar is one of the few stringed instruments with frets. I don't think I've seen one without. But, on the other hand, how many notes can you play at one time without tweaking weird harmonics out of a trombone? Itís pretty obvious that no one in a symphony has frets (unless they lose their sheet music). I always thought that free creativity and improv is the coolest. Just jam out. I will say that there is no question that anything without hardcore distortion (guitar, mind you) has no balls. It doesnít take a Joe Satriani, George Lynch, Steve Vai, Paul Gilbert, Alex Petrucci, Eddie Van Halen wannabe to figure that outÖ

Yeah, the 'bone is pretty much a one-note wonder. However if you sing through the thing as you play [much easier said than done] you can get some very cool harmonics.

My favourite trick is just to stand in front of someone, and sing an "ah" vowel right at each other - him on the root, me on the fifth, and try to pop the overtone two octaves above the root. You need to get it perfect - pitch, balance and vowel - to make it happen. But when it does, it knocks your socks off.

As every barbershopper knows...

Can, eh? Have you got one of those p*ssy-wimp girly-man keep-the-beer-cold wrap-around thingies? Or a frosted mug?

[Note: Dr. Piton rather likes those p*ssy-wimp girly-man keep-the-beer-cold wrap-around thingies. So there.]

Yes, I do have a custom A5 booze muffler... two in fact. And I am quite proficient at swilling from them. You must be referring to a "cozy." Of course, every good redneck has a cozy, or two. It gets hot out here in the desert, you gnoe. Do you bring bottles on a wall?

Absolutely! I bring wine bottles on the wall. Sometimes I even mail bottles air express. I know my package has been well wrapped when the bottles don't break.

I've never brought beer bottles on the wall? You?

Oh! I forgot! Does the Julius Kessler 750 ml "traveler" plastic bottle count?

[were I speakin' the Queen's English, which they emphatically do not do in Kain-tucky, ah would'a said "traveller"...]

I prefer to transfer the tequila from a glass bottle to a plastic bottle.

Klaus seems to like the fatty plastic jug of vodka- perfect for swilling at any time of day/night/whenever.
















Hey, were you on the cover of the Yates CATALOG?

Like, I'm not sure - nobody ever freaking SENT ME ONE!

It's probably just big wall theory.

Does Klaus drink vodka before the sun's over the yardarm?
