I just did a double take on a post from Debbie and Loyd Price, asking Layton to say hello to Jim Bridwell.

Loyd first posted in December 2015.

So this is not new, but it deserves to be more widely know.

For those of you not around in the late 60s and early 70s, Loyd was a first rate climber who among other things climbed some of the first 5.11, ran the Mountaineering School, and worked on big YOSAR rescues. I worked for Loyd at the Mountaineering School after Wayne Merry left to find peace and freedom in the cold north. Debbie was a manager for the Curry Company.

From what I can tell of the pictures they have posted, big fish is the new climbing.

Welcome to ST land.

Loyd is a great guy, fun to ski with and a good boss. Debbie and Loyd opened there house up for parties, took care of the guides. They served up some fine meals. I still remember the salmon. Cheers to two fine people.

I remember him from Tuolumne in the late 60's. A really nice, friendly guy. He should have done a Marlboro cigarette commercial with that photo. It is better than anything I saw on TV.

Welcome to the Man Who Climbed Yosemite in a Day...and his lovely wife! Tell us a tale of the Vendetta with Roger Gordon (who was the first guy to take me out climbing as a kid in 1970) or guiding for the YMS or rescues with Wayne Merry BITD.
