      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Potter Climbs Delicate Arch

Recommended Posts

Yeah I agree with you, but this is not about what he did with the rock or the damage he did. It is more about what happens as a result. Now, no installation of permanent anchors is allowed in the park. The more this happens in this park and others the easier it is for more restrictions to be created that will restrict climbing even farther. Yes not as important as the destruction of the planet, but climbing is something that I value and would love to continue doing outside instead of in some gym.

He is a Sack! I met him a couple of times in the Valley and he should never be mentioned in the same breath as Beckey, Robbins, Croft or a boatload of other non-poser climbers. I am glad Chouinard dropped him like a lead weight. I always wondered why Patagucci wanted anything to do with that SACK!

I also have met Dean. I found him humble and not full of himself. He truly climbs for himself. At least that was my impression.

Patagonia dropped Dean and Steph from the ambassador program.

 

They claim it isn't delicate arch fall-out.

Ask a group of folks that know him well, yosar, and most of em will confirm that, yep, he's a sack alright. He can climb though.

Why would I ask Yosar? Even I they do great things like rescue's and saving people. I have found that a lot of kids on Yosar are cocky in there own right.

I met Dean a couple of times before he made a name for him self. I didn't really get to know him but I got the impression he was a nice guy, quiet and humble. That was a while ago and people do change. That being said I would guess the truth is somewhere in the middle.

As for cocky kids on Yosar, there aren't any more ego's on Yosar than there are hanging out in the valley in general or out at smith or here on this board.

No end to amusement how some of you groupies drop these pseudo-celebrity first names.

This is a climbing site. In other venues people would think you're an idjit if you didn't know who this fellow was

 

Space dude

 

Of course I don't think Beth and Tommy live up to Buzz's level, but I do know the names.

 

If for no other reason know the names of the people you hate. ;)

Dang straight, they don't! They went climbing. Buzz went on one of the scariest, riskiest adventures in human history.

 

I met him once. Dang intense, and the only one of the original Apollo 11 dudes making a real effort to promote space exploration.

Ain't no one in climbing who even compares.

But I do know who AlpineK is.

Like I said you can do a better job of slamming folks if you know their name and stuff about them.

 

I know who Raindawg is.

Good point. It's possible that knowing who Stepf and Dean are is just as important as knowing who Big Lou is.

So far, no one has cited a creditable source for this information. I didn't see any mention on Patagonia about it, and Mr. Potter and Mrs. Davis-Potter are still listed as Ambassadors.

 

Perhaps this thread belongs in Spray.

It hasn't been announced to the public yet... it was only communicated last week internally so unless you are affiliated with Patagonia to some degree you wouldn't know.

 

I can understand with the nature of this board how this might be perceived as a troll. I would say look at my post history on cc and decide for yourself I spend my time trolling or writing TRs.
