And ancient page from Mountain, which year, I guess the expert local climbers would know--though there are apparently it is not PC to be "local climbers" in National Parks and Monuments, according to many.

Clue:
"The Window--((A4) This is the hardest aid route at DT. It was pioneedred by RR in 1964 and was repeated for the first time last July."

Even Stanley Kubrick and Speilberg had to start someplace. Good views, but no summit.

Which route is this filmed on?

Bonhomme kludge variation, Mouse.

For an interesting time you won't forget, after you watch the above video, click 'done' and you see a selection of related videos before you. the one to the immediate right,"climbing Devils Tower with Frank Sanders" is a click into an introduction to one of the most unique of he many eccentric individual people in our paradigm of eccentricity.

Enter at our own peril; I first met him at the tower in '76, I've climbed five el cap routes with him, a bunch of other walls, and shared uncountable other life experiences with him as well. But you want to be on your game. Maybe at Xmas we'll actually climb the tower together....
