Even though Dow's work is way beyond my abilities - and I am unlikely to ever do trad - I always enjoy reading his submissions. Outstanding reports and photographs.
Marmaduke, you need to tear yourself away from the keyboard and actually DO something outside, per Vitaly (who has come on in massive leaps and bounds since embarking on his outdoor adventures), before you argue the toss with folk whose carabiners you are unworthy to lick.
And Chapter 11 - congrats on your Seven Summits, a wonderful achievement by any stretch. However, I think what got people's goat here is your "retiring from mountaineering" remarks. To the real outdoorsmen here like Dow, Vitaly, Moapa, Chief, getting out in the mountains is almost a spiritual quest, a lifelong passion - like the passion of a surfer for the wave. To simply tick the boxes and then jettison the hallowed calling seems tantamount to sacrilege!

Hell no! I run a puppy mill and collect antique lawn tractors.
Are you seriously trying to have a rational conversation with another anonymous user or are you trying to "win" the internets Moapa?
I never try to win "the internets," but thank you for narrowing down who you are, by the choice of phrase.

You want to keep the classifieds dull too?
