Jack Fieldhouse Bio

Name: Jack FieldhouseHome: Squamish  (aka  Squamton), BC Age: 33 years young Zodiac Sign: Capricorn Years in the game: 17 years.

Who has impressed you the most this last year? Climber or Non-climber... A: That would have to be Mark Fraser of Flashed.  Doughboy to Whoa-boy! in 6 months!  No hungry bum pix for you, big guy!

Describe a time when someone helped your climbing? A: I instantly felt better about my climbing when I dragged fellow team member, Josh Haynes, up a multi-pitch on the Stawamus Chief in Squamish last summer.  Don't get me wrong, the guy can  pull the horns off a bull and bust open a can of Whoop-Ass on low stone but get him up high and you'd better bring a diaper because it scares the shizz out of him!

As a Flashed Athlete, how have you adapted to your new life with the paparazzi? A: I've got to admit it's been hard.  You never know when someone might jump out and take a compromising photo of you.  It might even be someone you call your friend! Recently, I've had to go into hiding or use disguises.  Currently, I'm employing a fat-suit and a thinning hair-line  wig, in hopes of evading the ever present cameras.

Where do you see your climbing going? Right down the toilette, honestly!  That said, I'm still having lots of fun and I love it as much as I ever did.

Seriously, though I'm looking forward to lots of trips with the family and trying to keep up to my kids.
