That's Bill Price with Daryl. That would have been taken summer of '79 I think. It was when Bill scooped the second ascent of Sentry Box. Bill was here with Mike "Big Wally" Boris. It was a trip that was very inspirational to Squamish climbers. Bill returned the following year with Larry Zulim in early July but it rained for nearly 2 weeks steady and their plans were liquidated.
So I'm not exactly sure if this pic was taken on Bill's first or second visit. It might be the second when hijinx like this replaced climbing and good god we were all bored.
You were probably only out on weekends then Frostback, being only *just* outta high school. Hahaha.

That was a great story from Mike Sawyer.
Can you imagine Daryl as a mountain guide? He might make the clients carry the beer

One of the great aspects of climbing is the entertaining personalities involved. We have all met a bunch of characters in our time

That was a great story by Mike. Freaking out uptight guides=good fun.

No question there....climbing attracts iconoclasts and people who have trouble adjusting to societies norms.
It's also true that many on this forum encourage destructive behaviors that they don't do themselves but think it's cute when they see it in others. Most notably, excessive drinking and drinking at crags. So, have fun and encourage behavior that you later lament when you're posting your RIP's.

Agree with you Jim and I respect your input regarding this matter.

We were all wind-up toys to some degree or other with risk-taking warnings - particularly from our parents - kept out of sight in our back pocket. And, for some, that risk-taking included more than the climbing .
