Climbing SPRAY / Re: Climbing pics in general~~

No one ever said Mike wasn't a good climber, or not a bold climber.  And he soloed lots of stuff of the more accessible grades with an audience. 

That Pirate "solo" was always a funny one because if you're going out there with the photog... maybe he could photograph the actual crux? 

I don't know though... it's like if there's one hinkey story that doesn't add up, its like whatever, you get the benefit of the doubt.  But there are at least a dozen of those stories about that guy.  Davy Jones, Pirate, Equinox, Romantic Warrior... and he lied to a friend of mine about how old he was, and then later said he had to, because Hollywood only hires young people.

Pirate has a livable fall... Romantic Warrior?  Zero chance that happened.

What do you think Kris - Did Reardon solo that thing?  ::)

A lot of folks questioned whether he did Equinox because there was no video, only stills. But there were a few people there and someone would have spilled the beans for sure.

The Pirate? There are also stills, meaning at least a photographer was there, I would expect a few more. Faking the photo's I've seen would be a pretty tough secret to conceal. It would have taken some real effort. I'll take him at his word.

I was sitting on top of Importance of Being Ernest (Hemingway Buttress, Josh) while Michael soloed up Scary Poodles. The .11c crux of that rig has some flexy holds. He climbed through the crux without using the normal holds. I was watching, from straight across, no more than 20 feet away. To say I was impressed is an understatement. Lord only knows what that stunt would be graded.

Speaking of featherweight guys' crimp Fest, how's about that Games Without Frontiers? That was another head-shaker. I climbed a few times with a guy named Derek I forget what his last name was, said he climbed with you before Mr. Solem. It seemed hard to figure because he was a shaky legged, foot slappin' run out artist that I didn't really like climbing with. He seemed like a disaster waiting to happen. Just our Six Degrees of Separation you have definitely climbed some hard shit hats off
