I remember reading about Moose's Tooth climb, sleeping in plastic garbage bags for the bivy instead of tent and sleeping bag and eating only power bars or some such. In Alaska!

Hand over handing down a Gondola cable to rescue skiers at Squaw Valley.

Roskelly (Mr black and white) kicking him off the team in Pakistan for being too driven.

Gnarly to the max dude.
