I notice that Largo's excellent "old climb" photos feature honed Stonemasters climbing hard.

My old photos tend to have a much different character, for some reason.

And in that vein ... Dakers Gowans on the FA of Laid Back, 5.8, on Notchtop in RMNP (1974).
Looks like he's scouting around to figure out where the next pitch might go. I'm not sure
what our belay/anchor theory was at the moment.

Another shot of Dakers Gowans on FA of Laid Back, Notchtop (RMNP) in 1974.
I've never heard of anyone repeating this short but semi-fun route.

No tribbles were harmed on this route.

FA Ulf Bjornberg, yur humble scribe 1979
Don't think it has been repeated!

It isn't all choss and no fun in the Olympics!








One month after this Ulf died in a rappel accident on the Cookie.

Lots of variety this page, from Largo to TM with a good share of journeymen in between.
