>>>Anyway...

ibid :

'...Carrigan is one of a number of climbers, such as Jerry Moffatt and Wolfgang Gullich, who spends much of his time traveling to other countries to try the hardest routes there. He feels that travel is important for a climber. “For me, it’s a chance to meet people who have similar interests and philosophies about life. I enjoy making new friends by traveling. If you travel, you get to see what’s happening everywhere in the world. You don’t get this sort of narrow, parochial view of what climbing’s about...'

>>> narrow, parochial view of what climbing’s about...

I reckon he's alluding to the under-belly of the Pines in the early 1980s ...

Yes indeed ... Sick Nutter in fact climbed the line first conceptualised AND attempted by Kim .....but it was good that Glowazc plugged the gap between 30 and 32 ...and it was good that Kim was able to climb 99 % of his own creation ...

Climbing # 93 @December 1985

'...I had the good luck to meet Kim Carrigan in Yosemite Valley during his latest visit to the United States last spring. Geoff Weigand, another visiting Australian climber, told me that Kim was climbing the Nose of El Capitan, so I had to wait. I wanted to ask him a question: exactly what is a “universal, sports, and free climber”? (From a Mammut rope ad).

“A terrible translation, I’m afraid,” he told me a few days later in Camp Four, shaking his head. But it was I shaking my head in amazement a few days later, after Carrigan had made an ascent of the Valley’s hardest testpiece, Cosmic Debris (5.12 + ), on only his fourth try! So I’m sure that, whatever a universal, sports, and free climber is, Kim Carrigan is among the best...'

That's some serious stipend stuff you have happening there isyl bro.

Who needs KC to write it out when all he needs do is bind up your posts and sign off on it.
If you make enough commish, and want to limit your tax liability, then you could always consider donating to the save simey's stipend fund campaign, as he too would be a likely bookworty contender cause.
I hear ya better be quick though as he has gotten feeble these days to point of not being able to drag back his mat to Golden Streak, after kman inconvenienced him of it from there.

'...LEE COSSEY

Lee Cossey is one of the most well known Australian climbers, both internationally and at home in Australia, and really needs no introduction - but here is a cool recent feature https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bBd0nISdXJ0

While Lee is probably best known for developing a healthy share of Australia's hardest sports climbs, particularly in the Grampians (Sneaky Snake, Trouser Snake etc.) and on his home turf in the Bluies as a major contributor to Diamond Falls and in more recent years to Elphinstone (where the ‘warm-up project’ is said to weigh in at 30...) he has also chalked up some noteworthy assents overseas, including free ascents of three major El Cap routes (up to 5.13c). Remarkably these each done in a single push, ground up without the use of any fixed ropes, a style that was unheard of at the time and is still rarely undertaken...'

'...He profoundly influenced a potent nucleus of his contemporaries who would become the world's most significant trend-setting rock climbing icons during a crucial era of emergence during which the modern sport of rock climbing was defining itself in France. These agents of the modern era included the likes of such highly regarded legends as Patrick Berhault, Jibe Tribout, Antoine LeMenestral, Didier Raboutou, Alain Ghersen, Jean-Marc Troussier, Alain Robert, Catherine Destivelle, Jacky Godoffe, Lynn Hill, Ron Kauk, Wolfgang Gullich,......

Never mind the spitefull

>>>crap

>>>shit

The reality is that KIM CARRIGAN is regarded by his peers as a GLOBAL LEGEND amongst GLOBAL LEGENDS ......

The vast majority of Aus climbers are ' legends' in their own chalk bag...

From 1975 to 1985 , KIM CARRIGAN was , is , will always be , the most significant Australian Rock Climber active in Australia and around the world..................FACT ............almost ' end of story ' ...

FKN BOLLOCKS !!!!!


Climbing Magazine, #93, December 1985 :

'...Many of you have no doubt seen the advertisements touting Carrigan as one of the world’s best climbers. Well, believe them! Kim proved it on his latest visit to Yosemite, making a number of good style ascents of the hardest routes, including Cosmic Debris, The Phoenix (5.12), The Alien (5.12c, on-sight), and The Rostrum (V, 5.12c), from bottom to top, connecting all of the hardest variations, including the final 5.12 pitch, on-sight and without falls, the first time that has been accomplished. At Smith Rock, Oregon, he repeated a number of the desperate new face climbs, managing the first 5.12+ pitch of Monkey Face, East Face on his third try. And, as a finale to his West Coast tour, he made the fifth ascent of Grand Illusion [ 2nd ascent was Wolfgang Gullich in 1982 ] , previously thought the hardest climb in America at 5.13c, on the morning of his second day, in only seven attempts overall, for the fastest ascent the route has seen!... It is easy to see why Carrigan is the foremost climber in Australia...'
