I came across these photos and thought I'd post them. They're from the early seventies. If I find more, I'll post them later.
Cheers!

Thanks! Didn't really know any of your group, but I remember some of the faces.

Wow - a bookshelf in campo quatro. Those were different times indeed.

Yeah, Camp 4 was actually livable in those days. It is now one of the truly grim climber hangs.

In the first photo at the table there's Nita right behind Jeff Mathis (2nd from left) ....

Mouse had a missing thumb from an accident at the Merced cannery.

There's a great shot of Mouse on (in?) Moby Dick in the Vertical World of Yosemite.

I remember David Yohhalum (but I don't know how to spell his name!) I remember one pundit quipping: "I you bring him you-haul-him". All these pics were taken before the giant leap backward called the "Swing to the Right" around 1980. Different times indeed!

Ruth! Thats her name. Heres a photo of her after we did the Nutcracker together. Dig the blue shoes. I can't tell you how nostalgic this is for me.

Great pictures from the way-back machine!

This is why I love this place - these out-of-the-blue remembrances.

That looks like two different women to me: top and bottom Ruths. Not the same build.

I think you're right now that I look closer. It's been a long time.

I lived in C4 that year. Jeff made babycakes and homemade syrup most mornings. Read a quote from the Bible and then rolled one with said page...

David Yohallum died of TB of all things, his lungs just bled out.

Nice pic of Ellsworth....

Those were good days...

Climbed Sentinel with Randy Hamm, the Chouinard Herbert, my first wall, Memorial Day weekend 1972, epic, with two liters of water between us. Randy died on the Cross on Mount Davidson, on an Easter Sunday a few years later, trying to climb it.

Donini, I remember your bus, the upscale life...

For those of you who don't know, Bill Bonebrake died from some sort of toxic shock, with his wife Gail, a nurse, driving him to the emergency room. This was sometime in the 80s I think.

I remember the faces and the names. Cool shots (all shots were butt shots until Meyers started staging them.)

Is the Chris with the swami and EBs, Vandiver? I cannot see his face but the build and hair a plausible.

I thought that also, but I don't think that is Vandiveer. (BTW, EB's means 1972.) And it is not Chris Anderson!

I miss Bonebrake, he was a sweet human being...

That Linda Halverson (limber Linda) Jeff g-friend at the time. And....I think that is Drone Stevens sitting on the hard Rt.

Question: True about David Yohalem? He was a professor in Europe and just moved to the U of NH a couple of years ago. CF has had comm with him.

Bill Bonebreak might have died of Hanta Virus as he was tearing out the stud walls of his home doing remodeling = tons of mouse sh#t.

Great flash from the past!

Any more?

Biotch,

no, I think Randy died around 1979 or 80. His girlfriend Gypsy from Santa Cruz would have known....
