A profound quote from Randy: “You can't drink beer _and_ climb at the same time...or can you…hmmm…this give me an idea.”
More than just a narcoleptic, Randy Ho is quite an active person. He’s the only climber I know that will run a full marathon on Saturday and be out at the crag either later that day or the next.
He’s a time optimist, which sometimes leaves him napping at the crag to recover from the previous night’s “clubbing marathon.” When I lived in
climbers that would be out with me till the late hours in the night promising to rendezvous in the morning for some hard cranking…and actually show.
But, credit is due. One prod and he stirs out of sleep to step into his harness and jump right onto his latest project. And, as these photos prove, he may need that rest to push through the extreme emotional states he experiences in sending a route. He’ll go from happy, to serious, to ANGRY in seconds.
One reason why you don’t disturb him from his sleep.
