Didn't Kamps write the first guidebook for the Black Hills Needles?

Bonnie sent me a scan of the cover of this super-rare guidebook first put out by Bob in 1971. A labor of love containing several maps to the complex landscape.

I was pondering Bob's love of the Needles this morning over my coffee. Amazing that so many California climbers spent time at an area so far away.

I was pondering Bob's love of the Needles

He loved the face climbing, the tiny holds, the tiny summits and the ambience of the Needles. Boy, was he good !

As a face climber myself I have always appreciated Bob's particular passion for just the right stone! Turning fantasy into reality...

Happy July 4th all!

Never had the pleasure of watching Bob climb...I would love to see some movie footage, if anyone happened to take the time.

Watching John Gill move over stone was enthralling!

Iíll have to get that one.

Back when they were trying to get permission to do the climb, the NPS was apparently reluctant. Bob or Dave (canít recall which) contacted me and asked if I could recommend them to the NPS staff. I was a new ranger in Yosemite then, but stuck my neck out and wrote to the Superintendent telling him that these were extremely competent climbers and should be allowed to climb. I imagine it's in the files somewhere. Sort of stuck my neck out, not going through channels.

Anyway, one way or another they got to go. Felt good about that. Wouldnít have felt so good if they hadnít made it, or had an accident.
