Obviously, Russ has spent too much time waxing his snorkel.

Brokedown, those are great shots.

Roger leads the year differential category so far... we need Fred Beckey to chime in :-) Here's another pair to keep things rolling.

Dave-

I don't think there are any shots of Beckey at an early age, 'cause Kodachrome hadn't been invented yet... ;)

On the summit boulder of the North-East Ridge of Lone Pine Peak in August 2013. It took us two days this time. My wife Penelope took the picture.

Penelope wanted to do this long scramble for her 62nd Birthday so I ended up doing the route with her some 30 years after the first time.

I took my son, Joe, up Woodson this summer, and pointed out the rock where I took his mom (my wife to be) on our first date in 1979. I took her up "Squawks," a 5.7 on the rock Joe is point to. Not exactly faithful to this thread, but I figured it might sort of fit.

I left my wife to be (Liz) on top of the rock when my climbing partner, Dave Hersey, showed up and said that Ray Olson was around selling cheap climbing gear. I did come back for her, though, and she did marry me. It's all good.
