A thought about this thread's title:
I could be wrong, yet I think this is the first thread of its type (and it doesn't belong in General Climbing but I'll let that go for now.) DJP is given, so to speak, his Warholian moment. (Recall that Mr. Warhol advocated everyone be given his quarter hour of fame.) Each of you readers, can you imagine your such thread?
I agree 100%
