La Escuela, 1970. I'm the blob on top. Mike Caldwell (Tommy's father) beginning to clean. We used 150-foot ropes, and the Red Roper guide said the first part of the climb was 100 feet. Having complete faith in the guide, I discovered that I should have stopped at the ledge, hence the sling belay.

Enlarging pin scars on Serenity Crack. Me cleaning the second pitch (note rack and halibut hat), 1970. Less than two years later, we returned without hammers or pins, and discovered how scary the first 30 feet can be. Ironically, Dan found a CMI hammer on the way down.

My first new route. Circa 1978. Taffs Well, Near Cardiff, South Wales, UK. An old limestone quarry, situated next to a busy road and railway. On this attempt, I eventually stalled out. The gear was non-existent, rock poor. I untied one rope and my belayer ran round to the top (he likely had to rappel first to reach the bottom) and then threw one end of the rope down to me, just as my calf muscles were about to explode. Returned a week later with a more determined attitude. Rated this HVS (5.9). Clueless. Now it gets E3 (5.10R/X)

BITD pics to share getting thin.

Partner Dane Scott,
got him into climbing and taught him the ropes while attending Lassen College 76-78.We pioneered a new crag in the area. We called the place Cannibis Crag, today it's known as Toms Thumb and he was my 2nd for many FA's there.
He is still climbing hard and putting up routes at Mill Creek Montana.
Miss ya buddy!
