You remember what street that tin shed was on in Burbank? A old family friend took a trip to Yosemite with Chouinard after running into him at that shed, they talked about falconry a d climbing at Stony. My dad grew up in Burbank and is the same age as Yvonne, my dad used to climb at Williamson Rock, Mt. Pacifico and Stony back in the 50's but never ran into Yvonne or any other climbers of the day.

Great Story, Don; sorry I wasn't on S.T. when you first posted it!

There's a picture of Don's, showing the snow depth at the time of their climb at

Don, Now that you found your WFLT slides, why not scan & post them here?

Hey Don, I remember the immense enjoyment I felt reading your article "Letters from Herbert" many years ago. Has that ever appeared on supertopo? I would love to read that again. For those supertopians who have not experienced it, I would say that their lives are not yet complete.
