Here is some more.

The topo of the Flake pitch with pitons placements marked.




Leonard, Eichorn, and Robinson climbed the Spire on 8/25/34 on their third attempt. At the same time Herbert B. Blanks, Elliot Sawyer, and Boynton S. Kaiser did the 2nd ascent of Higher Spire and this is a photo that they took.

Amazing!

Why the inset picture of the Sikh in the San Francisco Chronicle article?

Anders,

It was part of the article. There are many articles inside the notebook. I guess they found it amusing and didn't cut it out.

Really cool stuff Ken thanks again for sharing.

I love the part where they prove that pitons can protect the leader, thats cool.
