..Unfortunately Shawn, there is a rash of hearsay going around about a number of your ascents. Think of me as just a random climber in the area... I don't know you, and in regards to these things... I don't know who to believe. But you should know that there are a number of rumors going around questioning the validity of your claims. Most notably: Luminance. I've even heard people saying that Kevin Jorgensen is the rightful first ascensionist.
Since we now live in the youtube generation ... In the case of such a futuristic FA ... Sadly, a few pics and your word just aren't enough anymore.
The same thing happened to the Late Michael Reardon (RIP). Without footage, his solo of Romatic Warrior, because it was SO bold, will always be in question. Your FA claim of Luminance, spotters, photographer, or not... was so futuristic, regardless of its grade, it obviously requires an other-worldly head space.
If I were you, and this advice goes out to anyone who wants to silence the critics... Go do the line again, and get it on video. I know it sucks to have to re-prove yourself, but that FA was one of the boldest ever... and having footage would probably go a long way towards solidifying your credibility.
Just a thought man, either way keep crankin!
