A long time ago I saw a movie about climbing the Naked Edge.
So long ago that some direct aid was used, even though the
climbers were top-notch.
Can anybody remember the climbers' names?

Well-known Eldorado climbers, but I keep having memory problems.
Every time I almost remember, Duane Raliegh's name pops into my
head, and all is lost.

I saw one with Lynn Hill & Beth Bennet doing it around '79, but I'm sure you are referring to something earlier still.

Jeff Lowe and Mark Wilford climb it in Cloudwalker. I don't recall any aid.

Yes, Ron,
Duncan Ferguson and Jim Erickson. The muscle shots and all.
Thanks for the effort, folks. I assume those other movies are
also good ones.

Bob Godfrey made some footage also, of Roger Briggs staging a leader fall on the last pitch of the Edge. I shot the original footage of the first ascent of the Edge, in glorious Super-8, as Duncan Ferguson and Jim Erickson (not "Erikson") finished the last couple of pitches...

Pat, is your footage what I saw? It was at an AAC gathering at
Raffi Bedayan's in 1974.
Thanks for the spelling lesson. I was just about to "correct" my
spelling of "Erickson."
In my "mental block" I at least had the first two letters right
(Du for Duane Raleigh instead of Duncan Ferguson)

Bob Carmichael's movie (Roger Briggs and Duncan Ferguson? memory's dim) was the start of his filmmaking career. As I recall, it mixed footage of the Naked Edge with other routes such as Tagger, a little bit like Mike Hoover's "Solo."

As I recall the story, Bob's movie of the Naked Edge was instrumental in launching his career, starting with a job filming NFL games for a TV network soon afterwards. Buy him a beer and get the true scoop.

Bill Roos helped out making the Naked Edge movie too.

I love 'Solo'! I saw it as a kid sometime in the 70's or early 80's. It continues to inspire me, most recently on a boot-skiing run this spring. Great film.

I got to do this with Dave Breshears in 78.

Nuts, E.B.s, adrenaline and lots and lots of testosterone (and don't forget beer and pipeloads in the parking lot)!

You done that route?

'Cuple-three times yah.
Feels good on them jams!

First time up was neato.

Then, Lynnie was doing some sorta film shoot a bit back, early/mid 90's, and we lapped it 5 times for particular angles. First chance we'd had to rope up since the 70's, before she was famous 'n stuff.
