Guy Andrews, lost on Aconcongua 1980. I don't think he ever got old enough to drink in a bar!


Galen Kirkwood, lost but alive in the moldy Northwest.
On Suicide Rock with Grizzly Adams...

Paul Schweitzer (sp?) on Medlicott

Off White, foraging for toejamb at base of El Cap. Jeramiah Johnson racking up in the foreground.

Brad those are priceless - thanks so much for taking the time to scan/post.

gotta agree w/ off white about influential climbers:
eppi saw the thing in a way which has become the "modern view" of climbing - he - and Heinz Zak - influenced our lives in major ways.

thanks again Brad - funny, when Guy Andrews died, after that...I saw JB at Woodson and he said some people thought that it was me, had us confused.
I never met him - man it's sad what happened, so young.

Bruce and I were good long time friends...don't know what he's doing these days. Last seen him quite some time ago, at Clean Dan's Old Stage Road pad, here in Boulder - was it 92/3?

wow...

neebee, thanks, these are all 25-30 yr old photos. So Cal folks from that era will know these guys indeed.

John Mac, 'Epson Perfection 4490 Photo'. Wife bought it, don't know the price range. 4 slides at a time=8 minutes. Does negatives, the few I've tried came out kinda green, but they're 30 yrs old so we'll see... Prints (& t-shirts & chalkbags!) are very fast.

Ray, my P.O.S. Vista PC hasn't read a CD or DVD in months. Many,many,many hours with HP support failed to fix. Training with medicine ball, almost ready to hurl the m-f'er through the f'ing wall. Sorry, where was I, oh yeah, had to grab driver off the Web, so don't have bells & whistles.

Oh, what a sweet slice of familiar history, thanks Bee Hay.

I think that virtually useless old Climb Axe was Guy's. Galen and I borrowed it for an ice climbing trip to Lee Vining and lost it for him by leaving it planted in the 2x4 and visqueen camper shell on my old pickup, it didn't survive the drive home.

It was another 20 years before my rotting crud collecting big toenail grew out and got normal. Huffing toenail cheese is a gateway drug to harder stuff, I hope Salad dodged that bullet.

Kelly Vaught. OK, not a San Diegan, but we always let him climb with us anyway.

Dragged him to Canyon Tajo once-


I have always been inspired by his positive outlook-
