definition of "authentic."

I like the "guess" shot showing the two stepper etriers left behind; quite an esoteric feeling, no?

Thank you, Don!

The arrows show some of the more prominent lightning scars on this photo.

When you climb the "Pole" the lightning scars are all over this thing. Some of the scars jump into the cracks and come back out elsewhere.

Where do you think those lightning bolts come out Werner?

Back out on the face.

Mike Hoover actually told me about them just before we went to climb it.

He saw them while filming Eastwood during the making of the "Eiger Sanction".

One of the greatest climbing adventures of my life, and a summit I desired more than almost any;...The Pole...( I was a happy boy...)

So it begs the question...is it possible to climb the Pole anymore? If you ask really nice, will they let you climb it?
