Anybody read this article on Ozzy's kid in Outside Mag?
http://outside.away.com/outside/toc/200601.html
The article isn't available online yet...

When they started "HAULING THE PIG", they were talking about his sorry ass!!!

There is nothing like using daddy's money to pay guides to get your ass up El Cap!!!
What a little bitch...
Jack is SOOO hardcore now!!!

There is also an article on the Climbing site. I bumped into it through the Climbing Magazine wants your secret crags thread. They say a picture is worth a thousand words:

http://climbing.com/...rne-summit-elcap.jpg

I can't say the word 'pig' is applicable. I hope I'm not too harshly judged by my misspent youth in the end. Thank god no one was following me with a video camera.

If you actually read the article, he sounds like he really enjoys climbing. I dont see a problem in what he does.

I read it. Good for him. No really, good for him.

I think my immediate bilious taste in the mouth and nausea/disgust is actually just jealousy. It sure would be nice to never have to work a day in your life and have the finances and connections to be able to drop everything and go to Yosemite whenever you wanted. I guess he was born lucky, and by this turnaround, might actually live past 40.

Good for him. Just keep telling yourself that.

Article says he led 6 pitches on the Salathe, not bad for a fledgling 5.9 climber. Where does he pretend to be hard core? If you read the climbing article, he sounds like any other climber who just wants to climb more and get better.

What do you care what and why he climbs anyway?

this implies that climbing has something to do with proving to others that you're tough...I couldn't disagree more.

I think it's great. He has enough money to do anything he wants and he is driven by climbing.

I like hearing about new climbers getting hooked on climbing, working to get into shape, speak the language, push to get better and better - I don't care that he's a celebrity.

Who cares if he had a guide, or two, or three - he did it. Got to give him that. It was up to him and he did it.

I hope he sticks with it.

There was a lot of hub-bub about this when he was actually on the route. One thing no one ever really was able to report is what role he played in the ascent. I don't give a damn if he lead every pitch or was a full-time jug-monkey, but I'd be interested to hear about more about the climb. It seems like he would be an unlikely character to succeed at bigwall climbing, but stranger things have happened. If he truely enjoys the experience and completed the climb by fair means then I'm thrilled for the guy. I'd be a bit bummed if this was just a media grabbing attention stunt (which is what most people feared when they heard he was going to do the climb), but by most accounts it was fairly low-key. The got in, got up, and got out. Sure, some cameras were involved but he wasn't out there in the Meadow doing nightly updates with MTV, either.

Dude climbed it, and that's more than I can say about me. Hats off to you, Jack. I hope the experience was everything you dreamed it would be.

He dropped 150 lbs and got off drugs...That's more impressive than climbing el cap, in my opinion.

most climbers, including myself, feel that if someone who's famous, which 99% of the time has alot of $$$$$$$$$$$$$$, will just buy their way to climb, while everybody else, earns it....those first few years of learning and obsessing is our right of passage and we feel violated when some yuppie buys their way through

Congratulations to him!!

To me, climbing is one sport where a person's "place" in life is not very significant. In this sport, I've seen the homeless and "down and out" hang with fortune 500 execs and totally relate to each other.

Also, unless you've climbed El Cap, you really can't understand how big an achievement it is.

Jack has found a really good place in his life through climbing, it is in this way he is just like all of us, and I would shake his hand for what he has overcome. For all of you making fun of him in Camp 4, on this site and else where I don't think he realy gives a flying f*ck about your opinions. Sounds to me like he's just happy to have turned his life around. I'd rather see some one with tons of "$$$$$$$$" spend it on going and learning how to climb rather than on drugs, alcohol, etc. Do you honestly believe he could have done it without paying all that money, not because his abilities were sub-par, but because who would take him under their wing and mentor him. I know if the old Jack Osbourne approached me asking to climb I probably would have laughed. Not only did he have a hard time physically, he must still be having a hard time being accepted into the community. I for one think he should be given a break, and be accepted readily for what he has overcome. Jack you can climb with me anytime.
