Seeing Mimi's photo of Hugh Herr reminded me that I had these three photos. Here is Hugh on Hueco Crank, with his "extendo-Legs"... With these he was like 8 feet tall!!!

"Icon doit, Icon doit, Icon doit, Icon doit. Here goes nothing."

--The doltster's thought process as he moved on Traitor Horn.

Eddie:
A similar Dolt Mfg. Co. poster with a Traitor Horn shot featuring the Man Himself was posted in the Mtn. Shop in 1971, but it did not help in moving a lot of Dolt hardware, unfortunately. I believe Bill had on a ball cap of weird shape in the photo. Bill's ball cap bill was looong. Not extendo-leg long, but close. It put Da Brim in the shade!



Marlow: nice shot on the GGB. Not very good bridging technique. Shoulda got Hugh in on the action.
I got to the summit of the South Tower in the '70s, but via the elevator. It was a free ascent, though--no guiding fees.

LilaBiene showed me the print of this shot Mrs. K had sent to her.

This is one she liked especially well.
Thx, Hossjulia.

Is this a Glen Denny photo?

those pictures of Werner, especially of Astroman, are iconic; and as someone else said on another thread, but a damn piece in Werner.

"More iconic than iconic photos"

Iconic, iconicer, iconicest?

Iconincest, certainly.
