The Crew

Mad Max aka Maximus aka Mario aka The General
Special Moves: “Maxing Out” at the top of tall climbs. Also: the Popeye and a lot of unnecessary yelling.


Ardbeg Arthurgator

Special Moves: The Compulsory Campus. His essentials for every bouldering trip: the camera and a Nalgene flask of scotch (and not just any scotch). He even has a problem named after him.

He has retired from is back to wrestling pebbles.


FRS-ten

Special Moves: FRS, then activation! Also the Popeye.


Jackie Fingers aka J-Stacks aka J-Bone, etc.

Special Moves: The Micro Crimp or “Jackie hold.” She’s never met a crimptastic climb she didn’t like.  But don’t expect her to remember the beta.


Dr. Claw

Special Moves: Beta with disclaimer. Comes up with great new beta that works for him, but tends not to help anyone else who tries it. Beer expert, and a beast on the boulders.


The W aka Wario aka Shark Max
Just like the hotel, he has a pretty good view from up there.


Static Seth
Special moves: The Squirrel Tail.  A little too obsessed with highballs for his own good.


Cheech (aka Chef Kevin)
Special moves: The inverse-finger mono.  They say never trust a skinny chef.  But, we think this one is okay.


Papa Beta, formerly known as Uncle Beta
If you need beta, he’s got it.


The Sometimes Boulderer
We still haven’t quite convinced her that bouldering is the best form of climbing.

Showtime
Don’t get in his way if a problem is on “the list.”


Super P.A.C. (Punk Ass Chris)
9 out of 10 doctors agree: this kid is a punk.


Mitch “The Face” aka Sweet Potato
Well, you just have to see “the face” to know what he thinks about that problem.

E-rock-a
Special move: Keeping super calm on scary highballs.

Tiger Ten
Special move: Somehow always being on some sort of adventure or another.


Pepper

Although she’s FRS-ten’s dog, she also has a “special” relationship with the Arthurgator.


AWOL

Will we ever see him again?  Who knows.

Kupcake
Not everyone is special enough to earn a cupcake (and a new nickname) from the bartender at Clyde’s.


The Ex-Pats

Unfortunately, these members of The Crew have packed up and left the DC area.



Lily
Special moves: Out-beasting the boys.  We will also dearly miss her awesome rabbit chalkbag.


Ashley Juggs
Special moves: Placing gear in bouldering problems.  Another fan of the super highball.


Yuki
Special moves: Knocking over Jackie.


The Blowfish
Special move: Super secret blowfish sending power.


Marie-Bo
Special Move: Crazy awkward drop knees.  Don’t try to beta spew her medical advice.  She can take care of herself.

      On BMCM I remember AB and Govinda came to US for a concert post BMCM, I went to their show in Chicago, there was a visible cold war between them. they did not come on the stage at the same time, they did not perform on any song of BMCM. I think the root of the problem was that Govinda thought he was the bigger draw post BMCM, but the reality was different as the public was going crazy over Amitabh.This was the same Govinda who used to think Amitabh was GOd at the time of HUM.How Times Change !!!!!!!

    Where did the nickname Arthurscopic come from?

    Agree’d, this is the best bouldering page ever! Perhaps a team song is in order, or maybe a chant. Not to mention a pledge page, you know filled with the obsessed groupies that follow us around all the time.
