The Burn, Mileski, and the early days of North Texas Climbing

13 03 2009

So I was perusing the web the other day, when I stumbled across this piece from the mostly-defunct toprope.com about Cleburne and a certain Jack Mileski .  I had heard about Jack from various folks and have seen him mentioned in everything from online climbing sites to newspaper articles, but had never the privilege of meeting him, and was hoping to learn more.

What follows is a great bit about Jack and the early days of The Burn.
