'Course I might be wrong on both counts. Props for the old tapers and hexes. Got a box of them in the basement tht haven't seen light in 20 years.


Ditto for chips reply except maybe Mike Sawicki on High E and if they're not the Royal Robbins shoes, they're Vasque Ascenders? And, I too have a milk crate full of "ancients" in my garage.

Not Sawicky, Mike might have still been bearded in '75 and had much darker hair, was taller, etc. etc. Besides, why would I have a photo of Mike as my avatar?

Climb is not High E. Shoes are not Ascenders, not RR's, they were bright blue in color.

Hawkin's GTH or Gawkin Hawkins to those few who wore them.

The climb remains to be identified.

Can't name the climber in Rickster's photo, but could the climb be Bonnie's Roof pitch two?

You guys are killing me. cFrac already got the climber ID as the photo is my avatar.

The climb however, remains to be named.

Restores my faith in mankind. Yes, Le Teton, at that comfy spot before one must hustle up and then left out around the nose.
