This is so much fun, lets add a new dimension.
Someone will list attributes of a famous or somewhat famous climber...could be first ascents he or she did, significant repeats, home crag, books/articles authored, etc, and we guess who it is. These attributes aren't necessarily what they are most known for.
For example, if I was quizzing you on Yvon Chouinard, I could say:
"I made the 1st ascent of the NA Wall on El Cap, founded Patagonia and the company that became Black Diamond, and advocated clean climbing."
Of course, that would be too easy, so instead, I might list some lesser known attributes:
"I've done 1st ascents in the Bugaboos, the Canadian Rockies and Yosemite Valley, but I may be more famous for my non-climbing exploits."
The person who supplies the correct answer gets to submit the next question. I'll start:
"I made the 1st ascent of the highest peak in Provincial Canada, among other great climbs and a significant near-miss, yet I was shunned by the American Alpine Club for most of my life. Who am I?"
I didn't find the right solution from the internet. References:
