Some damned fine portraits and a real gust from the past for antipodeans. Impressed? You should be...

I'm not letting this one go yet. How about if I said there are photos of North American climbers as well? Go on, have a look for Mike Graham and Russ Clune - anyone interested now? Not that that matters of course, it's primarily a catalogue of genuine badasses from south of the line (stralia and new zillund). Kim Carrigan, Mike Law, Roland Foster, the Shepherd siblings, Dave Fearnley, Chris Baxter, on and on the list goes.

Come on punters, have a look!

No worries mate

Also look for Joe Brown and Eric Jones and Reinhold Messner and Andy Pollitt and...

Right that's it, no more bumps for this outstanding topic. I'll let the unstoppable forces of Sarah Palin, healthcare reform and advanced paranoia push it off the front page in due course.

Fantastic photos! Brings back some memories.

Great to see a photo of Jeff Lamb; he was famous in the Lake district as a "jackal." When other, lesser mortals climbed their routes with slight indiscretions, rests, points of aid, he'd grab the leftovers: the coveted first free ascent. Over and over. Super nice guy.

It looks raw.

Not to rain on your parade too much, but I'm prettysure these were topic-ed here already. A refresher course never hurts tho.

Well, the thread did start thirteen months ago. Perhaps that is where you remember it from.

Incredible! I want to go back to the Pines! Forever.

The quality of photos and the people who took the time to take them, all on fantastic film sure beats 10,000 crappy shots from today's digitals. Beautiful history.

Folks, take the time in your life to visit Australia and climb at Arapiles. Camp at the Pines for no less than a month and you'll change your life forever.

Glenn, how about a few photos of Greg Child? You must have a some.

Thanks,
Arne

That's quite the history there. It would be nice to gather some representative images from the landmark earlier decade when clean climbing with nut protection was introduced to Australia. Then the New South Welshmen Bryden Allen and John Ewbank were making historic achievements in style and difficulty in the Warrumbungles, Blue Mountains and Mt. Piddington and Queenslander Rick White put Australia on the map with Yosemite-style crack climbing at Frog Buttress. Cheers, Ted Cais
