Big Wall Forum / Re: Speak up people!

My name is Brandt and I'm a bigwalls.comoholic.

I live in Joshua Tree and mostly climb gritty 5.8 cracks and slabs.

My one successful wall was the Prow, done with the late great Bruce Bindner during three hot days in June 1984. I have only a few fuzzy memories:
     - Sleeping on Anchorage Ledge and Tapir Terrace.
     - Throwing up after one lead and apologizing to Bruce for wasting water.
     - Slithering across the "belly crawl" pitch through the wet muck; man that felt good!
     - Getting back down to the Valley floor, looking back up at the route and feeling like a god.
     - Drinking and drinking for days afterwards and barely peeing.
It was the greatest climbing experience I've ever had.

I fantasize about doing an El Cap route, but at 58 I'm not sure I have the umph to do it.

For me BW.com is a great source of information, entertainment, and inspiration.
