Chris,

Yeah, sure has the right haircut - could be Schmitz.

I think the guy with his back against the tailgate is Gerughty - again, the haircut.

Hard to tell if the standing lean-in is Kor.

"Apparently the only climbers in the 60's were in Yosemite"


(1) It's a California-based website.

(2) California climbers have the biggest rocks.

Come on, Reilly, that ;-) won't get through to all STers. They might think you're serious.

Correct on Schmitz in Pic 3.

Pic 1: Not the back of Gerughty's head. This truck was headed for L.A. one late Sunday afternoon. I don't know who it was, but I think it was another Scottish climber. Give away hint: The guy talking to Yvon is older than and has more FA's than Kor and is still alive.

Guido knows #7.

Becky is right, Don!

Hint: #7 grew up in the Valley and was daughter of the federal magistrate during the 60s and early 70s.
