I was on Lone Pine Peak with Rottingjonny when he got hit by lightning.
I think it was 1978 ?
I was leading, about 100 feet from the summit. He tried to run off the ledge but he was tied in...

Rottingjohny-
Most folks ( especially the cops ) didn't know how to react to the naked lady you had mounted to the grill of your scooby doo van.

I don't remember anything about a lime green cap? But, there are lots of things I don't remember from those daze.

I do remember watching you lead that harder pitch on Whitney where you were trapped in one spot FOREVER ! Later on I soloed that route and avoided that part by going to the corner that was 20' left of there. We thought it looked to hard back then because we sucked at jamming.
And-
I remember a very long night and being really really cold on a bivi on top of Lone Pine Peak, and waiting for the sun to hit us that morning. Sooo good!

Now we are a driftin.

Geoff Fullerton, haven't heard that name in a while. I used to climb up at Williamson with Geoff and Troy Mayr way back when.

It wasn't the lightening it was the lime green hat...
