Timmy O’Neill is totally awesome!!! Besides being an accomplished climber and an amazing slackliner, he is amazing at turning climbing videos into a super fun adventure! Every video he is in he gets the audience laughing. I love the segment he did in Canada with Lynn Hill bouldering, where Timmy was cleaning the rock with a brush on a stick going in one direction, and Lynn was climbing in the other direction. He continued brushing Lynn as she passed by like she was a piece of the stone. Lynn played along with the video segment and it truly became a work of art!!!! Or the segment at Indian Creek with Jim Donini, "The tape is the condom of the hand." Some day Timmy will probably be a game show host or something. Timmy, thanks for all you do in the climbing world! You are the best!!!

At the 2011 Summer Outdoor Retailers Show came the time for the rodeo clip contest. How many times can you get a rodeo clip in 30 seconds. Timmy was late to start the event so I grabbed the microphone and started the announcements where Timmy soon after came and whisked the microphone from my hand. The competition was fierce and overall I thought I got the win with 5 clips achieved. But then the last competitor at the last second tied the 5 clips. So it came down to a rock, paper, scissors showdown to decide the winner. The first round we tied, and then the second round I lost going with paper and the winner went with scissors. Timmy still gave me a bunch of Petzl schwag for the fun!
