I don't have either, but I'm thinking of Royal Robbins lounging on El Cap Spire during the FA of the Salathe, and either Chuck Pratt or Frost leading the headwall...can't recall which...

someone needs to post Herman Buhl's photo from camp on Nanga Parbat.

of course, my all time fav is Karl and Max chopping wood the day before starting the Eiger (from Roth's book).

It would be great to get a story about the nose in a day story from John, maybe he'll explain why he's wearing that one black glove. I believe that photo was taken before Michael made the one glove famous, perhaps he saw the NIAD photo?

426 - Yes, that's Warren on The Harding Route, Keeler Needle. Of course, photo was by Galen Rowell.

Werner, do the rest of us wankers a favor and place some f*#king pro, dude! At least grimace a bit or something! Sheesh!

Seriously, when I see that shot of Werner on the Enduro Corner i"m in awe. Rad!
