    I found it hard to but Reinhold's "all 14 8000m peaks" down. Some intense stories in there. Jam packed action crammed into one book. Rock moves bare handed above 25000 ft with fingers sticking to rock, solo climbing out of crevasses after falling , on and on. Quick read

    What we have here is an intelligence failure. You may be familiar with staring directly at that when shaving. .

    Potter. I've met a few of these gods/goddesses, but he's the only one I actually called a friend. Still think about him quite often. RIP Dean.

    Ondra is greatness in real time.

    Fritz, for so many reasons, but he would have been the first person to get up K2 if he wasn't a team player. His rock line is still unclimbed to this day, I think.

    Fred Beckey is at least the patron saint of dirtbags.
    Maybe not the biggest, boldest, strongest, or most gracious, but definitely the most persistent.

    Which brings me to Todd Skinner, who also plays prominently in that book. After reading it, I'd put him in the hall.
