Fitschen's Walk with Terray thread made me go and dig this gem out of the archives. Lionel's best effort in North America from The Mountain World 1964/65 published by The Swiss Foundation for Alpine Research.

Oui..I know that LT died in a climbing accident in Vercors but was he with a client at the time? I heard that it was a rather freak accident of some sort..

Good Bump MS...

Hey Steve, anything in "The Mountain World", or your archives, for that matter, about the 1976 "Independence Ridge" ascent on Foraker, AKA the French Ridge?

I will take a look for you.

The Mountain World has some really outstanding write ups of important climbs.

I was really stoked to find this article.

I have Mountain World 1962/1963 and 1964/1965 for sale if anyone is interested in buying them. They do not have dust jackets but are in pretty good shape otherwise.

I have to concur with Steve. Probably one of the best mountain publications of its time. PM me if your interested.
