I just took a cyanide pill so that I don't have to live in this world anymore...
Rich Purnell: YOU ARE A FUCKING MORON! Probably got a two-page spread in "Climbing" after his remarkable, cutting-edge climb. Nothing like the smell of BURNING ROPE at the crag, not to mention melted rope residue, heat-altered bolts, smoke-stained rock...and the list goes on.
Rich Purnell: Why not drench yourself in gas and FREE SOLO to the top, then light yourself on fire and JUMP. You'll be doing the world a great big favor, as well as creating a truly asthetic climb that contrasts the two mediums of life and death while bringing back some excitement to climbing and creating an appreciation for gear.
And what are the "two contrasting mediums"?? "Ice" and "Fire"?? "Colorado mixed crag shithole posuer fest cock rub festival" and "burning rope"? More like "Nature" and "Modern man's ubiquitous sub-human desire to selfishly defile everything he touches because he is BORED"
Rich Purnell: If you are SO FUCKING BORED, drop me a line and you can repeat your remarkable ascent, ropeless, while I blast you with a flamethrower, you STUPID FUCK.
I'm going alpine climbing. EXCITEMENT!!
