Inspired by Tarbuster's Indian Peaks thread, I dusted off the no-longer-new scanner
and another bad old slide.

Dod's Jam (5.10b) at Beacon Rock in Washington, 1976. Ancient gear notes:
no cams (one set of hexes), white pants, leather-patched EBs. Swami belt, of course,
no harness.

A "El Nino" Winter in the Cascades. We hiked into Colchuck Lake without skis and climbed north-face of Colchuck.

The only two gut-checks were the ice-glazed log in photo-----and the early part of the North-face Couloir on Colchuck. I found a short vertical step, a long-way above my partners snow-belay. The whole face above was draining spin-drift on me. As I worked over the vertical, on imaginary holds, the spin-drift kept building up on me.

Unfortunately, I was thinking of the Chouinard/Doug Tomkins "Ice climbing"
poster. The danger of the situation was negated by my mind going: "this is soooo cool"------"it's just like the poster."

Doug & Yvon reached out from the poster-----and lifted me over the vertical.

So I show up somewhat unannounced in Stockholm.
I'm just in time for the fall 'Facelift'. The
powers-that-be declare "Right, mate. You gotta
climb with Kerstin today, got it?"

Damn! The buggers drove a hard bargain but I maintained
a stiff upper lip. It was brutal I tell you!




While the helmet cam is common today few know about its
development in Sweden in the 70's.
