I think the RR route is called Varnishing Point. A definite and clever play on the title of a great flick.

Joe Herbst, 1976:

Upthread I mentioned Moses' classic '65 cuda, with which we had some adventures. Here's a glimpse of the car with Charlette in '73.

But, to get back on topic ... here's a poor photo of a 1973 aid rack, including:

 first-generation symmetrical Chouinard hexentrics
 Colorado Nut Company #6 hex
 homemade small copperheads
 bongs with tie-off loops permanently attached
 hand-tied 7/16" hero loops
 Leeper Z-pitons
 and the usual assortment of rock-damaging iron

Good God my man are you insane,
where's your helmet & nut tool,
why aren't you wearing a pack,
is that cotton your wearing,
did you actually have to drink water to get up that???

those cudas were sweet. I had a buddy who had one during the early 80's and loved it until the back window cracked -- you couldn't find that in any old junk yard.

Palisade Glacier still reached down to Sam Mack Lake in 1968 when this photo was taken.

Steve Wunsch on the Lizard, 1971.
For protection he placed slings over two mud flakes, leaving a piton on each sling to weight it down.

pic apology for interrupting the thread...

Hey, Munge, this thread was made for interrupting. I love all the not-ready-for-magazines photos on this site, and hope a few other folks might have new scans of old climbs. Tiding us over 'til we get loads of shiny-new digitals on new climbs with the coming of spring. Another snowstorm's going on out my window today.

Thanks for the encouragement, Steve. I'd hate to get boring with these things.



And I know what they'd say if I posted this on RC.com:

Two for Werner ... the Camaro served us well.

Thanks Chiloe

That's a real American car, and not like those phony impersonating Toyota's.

Edit: I forgot to say; Wunch was a master climber.
