SICK!!

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!

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.

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.
