I think that is a shot of Jim Adair on "A dare by the sea". The next season he tragically died on the approach to the Chouinard Herbert.

Yes Super Crack of the Gunks, '77.
The text is quite dramatic as well.




As an Off Topic note of interest:
Many of you may know that Vern was a prime contributor to the Tuolumne legacy of FA's during the 70's.
In a big way he spearheaded the modern standard of free climbs which many of us enjoy there.

Now, he's got kids, he's got brain tumor, he's going in for more radiation.

Could be a good time to support a comrad down, a major builder of our sport: while he's still alive and kickin' would be cool.
You can also purchase some of his stunning photography.

Here's his website:
http://www.vernclevenger.com

I'm told the Gallery address is correct, and that may be the best target for donations presently, as the home address and pay pal features may need to be updated.

Here's a July 8 '06 pic,

An easy one for me, but I don't own it. I think it might even be from '80 or '81.

"elcap-pics" (Tom E.) on Summit Magazine, high on El Cap, in aviator shades, no helmet, mane flowing, looking about as cazh as a weekday shopper, getting it done when the Nose was still a benchmark. (Okay, I think it still is a benchmark of sorts.)

It wasn't so much the aesthetic of the cover (though it was a great shot). It was what it did to us. A fellow bumbler (who would become and still is one of my closest friends and best partners) and I gawked and dreamed for months on end over that cover story. (Truth told, we probably didn't have the dough to buy another magazine; more likely we had spent our cabbage on "recreational" supplies.) We were blown away; we were inspired. We were scared shitless. Because we knew what that story had done to us, and that we'd have no part of backing down (for better or worse). We were fledgling crag rats looking for something more, and the story and photos by Tom and Co. illuminated the direct route toward what we sought.

I'm grateful to have met and climbed with the inspiring cover guy. And without his effort in documenting his adventure, my life would certainly be different than it is.

Cheers to Tom "bask in the glory" Evans:

I was always fond of the cover of Ascent 1971.
The Chouinard photo of Doug Tompkins getting pelted with spindrift in Scotland. Was made into a poster.
My source material is no longer available, but maybe
Steelmonkey or Ed H?

I'll have to look...I think I'm missing the first two issues of Ascent, but I believe they were pre 70's, so might be I have it. I'll check for it...
