Good news, Joe Simpson just released his long-form birth certificate!

Not sure how or why I have missed this post. Perhaps, I forget having previously replied? I'm not sure as I only have read the last page of this post. Joe Simpson is and was a glorified Aron Ralston. Sounds harsh, but arrogance will bring less sympathy. I would expect nothing less myself.

I know this might sound strange to you but I need to share this with someone.
I do not believe Joe Simpson. I think what happened on Siula Grande was exagerated / falsified.
I know this is not very respectful from my side but that story is full of holes... I feel a bit ashamed to say so, but I think he invented a lot of things.

What is your view ?

Silvo, only just read the opening thread, and I totally agree; something is odd. I have no idea for sure why I feel this way, but I do smell a rat!

Even though I'm a fan of both, I gotta agree with you on that one. :P 8)

I agree with you, Joe's story is an falsified one but you are a real and true lier
Silvio1973 wrote:Sun Mar 06, 2011 6:39 pm Again, I think you should read my post before getting in such comments. I did not say the story is false and indeed this is not what I think.
Why you do not assume your words ? Falsified and false have the same meaning, isn't it ?

You mean crevases ?

I totally agree your quote because when you are nothing clever to say the best is to lie.
As Romanian, let me tell you that you took the crease quickly major flaw of this people, from whom you seem to live every day: critique to say nothing and denigrate to pass the time. Is an attitude that hides some frustrations.

Well frankly Mr Troll, who cares? I guess from the safety of your sofa it would be hard to imagine what would push a man to such extremes.
It is the will to survive and not die alone. I can certainly believe this even though nobody who isn't in his shoes could grasp what it would have been like and what would have been going through this guys mind.
I for one totally admire Joe Simpson. I also admire Simon Yates. He totally did the right thing under the circumstances.
They have both gone on and done wonderful things in both their lives and I wish them both the very best.
I also wish you would do something a fraction of the good they have done...that way you may feel a little better about yourself so you wouldn't feel the need to be so critical.

i don't know if i am more curious about what drives one to comment on a six year old thread, or that they did enough digging to find it in the place,
