My choice would be the photo (by Phil Bard?) of Croft on the Rostrum.
It's one of Bachar's photos.

Yeah this thread is awesome. Synchronicity where is that?! What a powerful place!

I'd have to add that Edlinger shot of him hanging one arm in the Verdon as well to my favs. Now if we could only see that & the Bachar on OZ. anyone???

RyanD, that is Honnold soloing the Phoenix 5.13, if I'm not mistaken its probably the hardest single pitch solo that has been done in the valley (Werner can correct me). Still If I had to pick one iconic solo it would probably be Honnold's triple solo of El Cap, Half Dome and Mt. Watkins in a day. I don't think most of the world (outside of us climbers) can really grasp the magnitude of that accomplishment.

I remember one of Bachar at the crux of On The Lamb. The poster is somewhere in my basement.

Bullwinkle took a shot of Bachar pulling the lip of More Monkey Then Funky that IMO is one of his best.

Ounce



I prefer Oz. It rolls off the tongue way better and Dorothy's little trip through Oz has way better allusions to drug culture anyway. When I think of Ounces I always think of my 20 oz Estwing hammer that I've used for thirty years.

outrageous solo. I assume he soloed the crux face pitch below? Yikes!

Whenever I do the Gram traverse I always think of my Gramma.

Possibly because of her little side business she ran out of her backyard green house.

Yeah yeah I know OZ is about drugs, I wasn't referring to the Wizard of Oz, thanks for posting up. Sick shots, way to redeem James, not sure how the redpoint would have felt but I'm sure the word relieved comes to mind. I remember reading your story man, well written but yep ur a lucky guy, way to get back up.
