Climbing Partners

Greg is my regular partner these days. In fact, he is so very regular that it makes me envious.
Famous for his cushioned camping style, not to mention his preference for fine victuals,
you will never see him putting one single ramen noodle in his mouth.

We started climbing together in 1997, back when he was selling climbing gear here in
Cheyenne. He had taken out an add in the local newspaper, inviting anyone who was interested
to join in a climbing club. When we spoke on the telephone, it turned out that he is married to
one of my fellow Central High graduates! And so the world became a little bit smaller.

The start of this route has a slabby character...

Greg excels in face climbing, although when the need arises, he will certainly clamber his way
up any crack. He has a sick determination sometimes, sick enough to run a route out with no
protection whatsoever when it is absolutely necessary... like when the sun is going down!
