I had forgotten about this thread,, pretty fun.

lots of good stuff here.

It is interesting in the picture above Rube seems to be hanging from the middle biner with the rope around his waist. I guess this was how it was done back in the day...

he seems to be bypassing every other placment.

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?
