The Mitch Warren of the Wasatch

after returning to Australia for a brief period I spent a few days climbing in the blue mountains. It was great to be back in Australia, and I was just thinking to myself how friendly everyone was when I bumped into Mitch Warren at Bardens Lookout. I gave him a friendly G'Day!

Mitchells typically prickly personality was not as happy to see me and beratted me for posting something about some climb detail on some forum somewhere in time and space that was inaccurate. (i'm still not sure what crime I had committed, so if anyone can work out what I have posted innacurately, please let me know, and I'll update the information.)

I left bardens, so that Mitchell could continue parading around the crag with tiara still afixed.

This encounter realy got me thinking, about how every climbing region in the world, probably has their own Gollum of sorts...After returning to Washington I finally found a Warren incarnation!!

has anyone been on a climbing trip and encountered the regions own Warren Gollum Goblin??

Actually that photo does remind me of a fellow I met backcountry skiing near Vail. He only travelled with his cross country skis. When he reached wherever he was skiing, he'd cut down a tree branch and trim it to use as a single ski pole. He was an extraordinary skiier. I later saw some pics of his extreme skiing in a ski mag.

A lot of climbers do take the whole thing way too seriously though. They seem to have forgotten what having fun means.

Rod, you sound as though you'd appreciate Biggle's (James Bigglesworth) philosphy:
(just substitute climbing for flying)

When you are flying, everything is all right or it is not all right.

If it is all right there is no need to worry. If it is not all right one of two things will happen. Either you will crash or you will not crash.

If you do not crash there is no need to worry. If you do crash one of two things is certain. Either you will be injured or you will not be injured.

If you are not injured there is no need to worry. If you are injured one of two things is certain. Either you will recover or you will not recover.

If you recover there is no need to worry. If you don't recover you can't worry.

From Spitfire Parade, by Capt. W.E. Johns, Oxford University Press, 1941
