I well remember a conversation with Bryan Burdo on our way in to Triumph. I was complaining about some unlikely scene in a movie, such as the floor-full of snakes in Lost Ark, and he said, "Andy, the movies are for fantasy, for fun, you know?"

We did the standard/classic I-forget-which ridge (West?), but halfway up we heard a tink-tink and saw Bob Crawford IN A RED SHIRT placing a pin coming around the North Ridge as he and Pete Doorish made the first ascent. Would have been a good time to have a camera.


edit:

That was the FA of the North Face/ Central Rib in August 1981

Funny stuff Bruce & Andy!

Thanks for confirming that "the wall" in question is in fact famous Bruce.

No Jack Lewis on Triumph mentioned by Beckey. Pete Doorish and Alex Cudkowicz doing the east face in '85. Turns out it was the Northeast Ridge we did. Good position but not much rock-climbing, which I was still learning was not the be-all end-all in getting up mountains. In fact, the most fun we had was seeing Bob and Pete, then meeting them on top, then a couple lucky guesses on the descent (or Bryan's sixth sense route finding).

Meanwhile, back at the ranch

Bruce,

The young man who ran up against bad luck on Triumph Peak was Tom Thomas.

His passing did cause a shock wave through the Canadian tribe regardless of the level of risk assumed by various participants and where they liked to partake in the deep end fun of climbing.

It was sad news...

Wow, i missed those last shots. Thanks Andy!

Looking forward to seeing people at Perry's tonight! He called me today, and said things should be ramping up around 7:00-7:30.

See y'all there!!

MH2, you know you are just being a tease about that roof crack, right?
(in edit: not that I could make two moves on it)

Not meant to tease. Just a TEST. As to location.

I failed the test Andy. Can I have the answer so I know for next time?

The test is more a routine diagnostic of the Oplopanax database. All 3 photos are within 5-10 minutes of each other.

As pic 2 shows, the bugs have not learned to fear diggers, yet.

Excellent bonfire with Perry and Nadine last night. But, dang, I didn't take any photos. Does anyone have some they could post?

Ok this one sucks, but you can see more of the crowd.


Thanks a lot Perry for a great time, and a beautiful bonfire which kept us nice and warm.
That deer stew was awesome too!
