In climbing I do things that I enjoy and want to do not the ones that are currently in fashion.

I’ve always thought that the most insecure climbs are the most attractive. If I know I can do something, it’s not so interesting.

1994

Octopusy M8, 20m,  Vail Area

With its pre-placed protection, redpointing tactics, and exotic moves, Octopussy signaled a radical departure in mixed climbing. Technically it was by far the hardest mixed climb yet made.

Raphael Slawinski, "AAJ", 2002

When I saw those photographs of Jeff on Octopussy a whole new world opened up for me.

Will Gadd, “Climbing”, 2002

Wind, Sand and Stars V 5.12c, 11 pitches,  Zion, first free ascent,  with Steve Petro and Lisa Gnade, the route was done a year earlier by Lowe and Catherine Destivelle, one of the very finest long climbs in North America

The route is really the best free climb that I’ve ever been involved in.
