SICK!! If you've ever been to headstone rock you know how the climbs feel airy due to the fact the boulder is resting high up on a pile with the desert floor all around you. Props to the soloist but not my cup of tea. Give me that rope!

Great shot, but you gotta admit it's full on posing. All in fun! :)

Re: Nice

Yeah... like, his left foot really needed to be there. Still, pretty bold and a good pic!

Re: Is Paul

Yes, he is very much alive. In fact, he's my housemate in Joshua Tree. And he's one of the nicest people you could ever meet.

Does Paul do

any training than climbing to be able to do what he does so well.

Re: Does Paul do

No, he doesn't train at all actually. He has been climbing for a very long time, but then so have a lot of people. I think it's just a matter of some people being gifted at certain things. And climbing is his thing.
