Given RG's clues and the view of Skytop, I'm guessing that the face the climber (RG himself?) is on is Sleepwalk.

The slide may have faded colors, but it looks like it started out showing a steely sky, snow on the distant hills, and a wool cap sur la tete de l'alpinist. What month was that?

Frank has the climber right, but not the climb, which is further down still. I think the month was February---neither the snow nor the "steely sky" is an artifact of the fading process, and la tete de l'alpinist is indeed shod in wool---but we're talkin' 40 years ago again, so I could easily be wrong about the month, if not the season.

Whatever it is, I hope it's cleaned up a little since then. It looks dirty.

I've decided that climbers are actually doing the rock a favor. No one wants to be covered in lichen and dead leaves and ugly millipede things.

Are you climbing without a paddle in that B/W pic?

(this will make sense only if I'm correct).

Mike could be right, because the actual route in question crosses the one where paddling might help.

Well I can't hope to compete with RG for historic shots. But here's one that was taken only hours ago. Might be a bit tricky to ID.



GO
