Yeah Giovanni, Peggy really enjoyed her company. She mentioned Silvia and Layton have been childhood friends. Jim really talked very highly of you. He appreciated the relationship you two had!

I have the Bridwell hammer that was going around among the ST crowd awile back. I tried to contact Largo so I could send it to him figuring he would know what best to do with it but I don't seem to be able to get his attention.

Ironic, Peggy and Layton are trying to get some of Jimís personal items back. He was generous and trusting and gave a lot with hopes the sales would come back to him to help with his family. I am sure Peggy and Layton would Love to have that back.
Is there a way to contact you....and thank you for posting this up. Just spoke with Peggy last night about this very matter!

Ron - there's the 70's Climbers book we worked on gathering all the StoneMasters signatures...you know the one with probably the ONLY Richard Harrison autograph ever...

I told you I would save it for a day when it was needed to raise funds for one of the Stoners. If this is the time, send me an email and I'll get it to you to do with as you choose.

Ron,

The hammer was on loan so no need to do anything in return.

At the recent Mountain Film Festival in El Chalten, Patagonia, there was a brief slide show at intermission. Here are poor photos of two slides honoring Jim Bridwell. On both evenings of the festival the pictures of Jim moved the 600-strong audience to prolonged applause.

I remember meeting him in Joshua Tree when he was "fiddling" with his gear.
I think it was when he was apparently through actively climbing. This was about 1900 something. Our meeting was not climbing but mostly a "howdy!".
I will miss him but the memories will remain. And as they say R.I.P. CUL

Sorting gear. Note the briefcase behind his knee. Useful for storing pins etc. in the tent.


Nice shoes, Jim. A C4 fashion statement, c/w Terray down jacket, but definitely "pre-paisley".

Wow Hamie that's a find I've not seen that one. Yeah the shoes! Paisley and what goes with it looked a few experiences away yet.

Who are you?

Jim's hammer looks like it is a ball peen type.

I came across this news on a rare browse through the taco stand the other night, and have had a deep time making my way through your posts over the last couple of nights.

Did meet the legendary man once on a slide show tour, but the images and feelings you all have shared of your friend far eclipse those I have. Thank you so much for taking the time to share them, can't think of a greater tribute than such deep respect and love from your community.
