klaus - I've never climbed it... But somebody really needs to get up there with a Car Jack or 2.

That thing is about to come down anyway... What's d'ya say?

Can anyone say "Trundle"?

Great stuff! I am enjoying a virtual road trip to yesteryear here (channeling Huell Howser!). Love the Badger Pass postcard. Reminds me of climbing that roof with my then four year old daughter in a big snow year back in the early nineties.

Bump. Because I like the pretty historical photos, and Simon's photo contests are fun.

All are from Google Images.

I went out to the Antiques Mall here today and scrounged around the cards, but all I came up with was another couple from the Cathedral group and one showing a rappeler on what looks to be Selaginella, Upper Falls roaring in the backround. It's a 60s vintage, many of you have seen it. Wish me a scanner.

I have this as a poster on my wall, given to me by one of my climbing partners....

Doubles! They aren't very old. But they're older than some of you.
