I saw the classic photo of Bridwell ,Long and Westbay, after the NIAD ,in the Shield headwall thread..

There are not many climbing photo's as iconic as that.

What other climbing photos would make your top 10,, or top 100 list of the best ,,, ever.

'Separate Reality'?

Bacher, free solo .

Perhaps that one of Robinson , Leonard, and Eichorn on the top of Higher Cathedral Spire.


Maybe Chicken Skinner can pull out a few old gems..




And Largo,, who took that classic shot? ,,, or was it on a self timer setup?

That would be a good story just by it's self.

I think I've seen this one on ST before. Just scanned from "The Dolt - A Eulogy" in CLIMBING July - August 1976

Oops, not really a climbing photo, but I'll leave it up and look for something else. Give me a few days.

As much as I disagree with what he stood for:

Also, my dial-up can't find it, but the one of Lynn Hill freeing the nose in '94 is pretty iconic to me.

I LOVE the shot of Barry Blanchard in Alpinist, where he stares vacantly into the camera from his shack.

Not that I've ever aspired to climb Himalayan peaks but the National Geographic article in which this photo appeared is one of the ones that inspired me to take up climbing.

Can't find the photo but there's one of John Stanard (jstan) on Foops that is definitely iconic.

This series of Chappy working the Owl by Ed Boyles in the 1973 Ascent always did it for me. This last (top) pic with Mark looking around the corner just sort of calls out, "Look where we are and where we can take climbing."

I didn't crop out the list of thin cracks cuz I thought some might find it amusing if they had never seen the article. It accompanied Bridwell's piece entitled, "The Innocent, The Ignorant And The Insecure: the rise or fall of the Yosemite Decimal System."

Since I *don't* disagree with what he stood for...

I own a copy of this too, btw. =)

While looking for a copy of it, I came across this! Very Cool!!!
