No chalk? No sequined chalk bag? No t-shirt sporting your sponsor's logo? Jello, you are simply amazing!



That is one heck of a GQ photo, too! (wink, wink)

Well, we were climbers once, and young. You guys sort of make me feel elated and embarassed at the same time. Thanks for that.

L, you especially make me feel young again...Stop it now!

Tough and fluffy......The tension is almost unbearable! And the Bear is certainly untensionable! LOL

Would this be the Tim Kudo photo in question earlier? Mr. Zen Macho himself on Gravity's Deception from Vertigo Games by Glenn Randall 1983.

Yup, that's Kudo, but not the shot which appeared in the mag.
Good work Steve, but we need the other shot still.
Oops, it's in post #10, by steelmonkey.
Better call it a night.

Sounds good. Don't let this thread die. Jeff, as I posted a couple days back, I'd sure like to hear any other tidbits you might have about Mt Gould. Not to hassle you; not looking for beta; no intention of climbing up that rotten wall but still fascinated.

Arne- that WoolyJello shot is uncredited in Vertigo Games and should be Glenn Randalls's by default. Unless Der JelloMeister says otherwise, Glenn should have the original.

Just ordered the book today. Don't put up many pictures on the wall but that one is perfect. So yes, next step will be seeking a purchase of it from Glenn or Jeff, I'd say about 11"X14". And you know thats a nice ANALOG film photo; remember those?

Yeah, Arne, that's Glenn's photo. Don't have any idea how to contact him, though.

As far as the climb on Mt Gould goes, I remember the first half being very loose. Weis and I soloed that. The upper part was really sound rock, though, and we had a great time overall. As we climbed we could see a lot of commotion on the trail beneath the face. When we got down, we discovered that a woman had been badly mauled by a grizzly.

Where exactly is the Central Pillar on Crestone Peak and what do you recall about that outing? I worked two COBS courses in the Sangre de Christos and did one of the more interesting finishes on the Ellingwood Arete with Wally Berg back in 1986. To call that rock featured is an understatement for sure.

FYI:
Glenn Randall recently gave a slideshow of his Colorado wilderness landscape photographs here at Neptunes.

I bet if you google him, he's got a pretty good web site with his photographs and recent book.

OK, thanks Jeff. No more pestering, you've been a great sport! You gave me a great history tidbit. Imagine, climbing that route, whilst a grizzly mauling is happening down below. I couldn't find any info on that one though, in 1973. All of the compiled, chronological lists of maulings in Glacier only cover fatalities. Anyway, I might wander up that way some day. It's still hard to believe there is really sound rock up there, but you would know.

Take care,
Arne

Jello wants to pay someone $10,000 to climb the routes and post photos.

We'd have to wait a lifetime for that.

How 'bout this. We all pool our money and pay Jello $10,000 for his photos.

Wheeler Peak? How often are you going get shots of that thing being climbed?

Most of us are california based, you list off peak that we know nothing about.

It would be worth it.

On a similar note, someday I want a look at the Galen Rowell archive. That guy climbed everything cool in the sierra that no one knows about, except a handful of folks.
