Since this board has been a little dead lately, I thought Id stir the pot...

I love the Gunks and its history but unfortunately missed the times when the FA's were going up. So I was wondering if any of you out there had any fun stories, anecdotes, or the like from climbing with or knowing any of the greats: Stannard, McCarthy, Williams, Barber,...

Maybe its an FA story, maybe its something you learned from them, maybe its something that impressed you, whatever.

If you have none of the above, maybe just share a story of your own.

Cheers,
Ross
