So much thanks to this dude. Thank you for being the first person to solidly believe that I was any good, way before I actually knew what I was doing. For inviting me out to exciting, new, and different climbs. For keeping me alive and showing me how not to die. For teaching me about the human psyche even when I constantly interrupt you. And for sitting on ledges in the wind for hours as I gumby-ed my way through one of my first fixed lines.
