I'm sure we were using swami belts by 1967.

and yes...we climbed in Swami belts and Robbins (blue with red laces) shoes back in the day... We did use belay seats to follow pitches while jumaring.

RRs and buttbags, all hip belay, on the Nose. I'd be thrown out of the gym, hell probably get thrown out of Yosemite. hehe

im up to 45 different routes. hoping to get to "50 by 60", as in fifty routes by sixty years old. im currently 58, and still lucky enough to be living the dream(OCCASIONALLY) up on the big stone.

Roy Kligfield, Donn Heller was a good friend of mine and I remember him telling me about going up on the Dihedral Wall. We did a lot of fun stuff together and I miss him dearly. Maybe in his next life he’ll KEEP HIS FUKKIN’ CRAMPONS ON when he tops out on a big winter ice climb...

Mastadon--how do I contact you? What's your email? It's interesting you posted a picture of Donn on Liberty Bell as the two of us went up on the East Face route on Liberty Bell (the original one) but were chased off by swarming bees about 3 pitches up! Roy
