OffWhite,
Bob "BVB", standing with a can in his hand, RIP.
Pete Nelson standing, mustache and hat, Sierra Club member.
Next to him, you are hiding (a bong?) behind the old man's shoulder.
A very young Alan Nelson, seated second row, hat and Rx glasses, RIP.

I don't recognize any San Diego RCS members or even peripheral RCS hangers-on from that time period. Surprise me. A couple weeks ago, I happened upon an RCS roster from the early 1970s while sorting old papers.
Thanks for posting!

Juan, left of Pete is Mike Weegee, he was an RCS guy. I think the couples on either end were too, but I don't remember the names, though BVB had a few down, but everyone except the wee children went climbing that Thanksgiving weekend 1973, my first real time out climbing, I think it was Alan's too. Pete's wife (Eileen?) in front, Alan's older sister Karen and younger sister Katie next to him. I think I was climbing in Lowa Scouts, goldline tied with a bowline on a coil. The Sierra Club Rock Climbing Section was a great intro, some good folks. I took a belay class with them that was quite challenging and confidence building, taught me to trust my hip belay.

Off White, I wonder if maybe some of those guys were in the Mountaineering Section rather than RCS? There was overlap between the sections, and also with the SD Mountain Rescue Team. I recall Mike W. had an untimely death, maybe just a year or two after this photo; heart attack, iirc. His wife Jolene(?) climbed some with the RCS. That might be her seated in braids. I recall her dark hair always braided like that.

So you caught the concrete block hurtling out of the pine tree at Guymon Lodge? A rite of passage!

I reckon all photos must be taken after 1970 and before 1980.

Love Powell's Kronhofers? Maybe not. Too early? Roper's look like Pivettas.

Even though top person resembles McLean, not really sure. Name these guys.

McLean just came by and verified that they are, indeed, McLean and Bugs

Guy, the top photo is Michael Jaffe and is after 76.

Don't know the boys in red but that looks early enough.
