What a beauty this one is. Made me get off my butt and buy DR's book. Now seems like a good time for a brief resurgence.

From the book can you determine if CP was my geometry teacher
in Emmett Idaho around 09/1978 to around 02 or 03/1979?

Just read this for the first time-that line from "The View from Deadhorse Point" is haunting. Thanks for such a heartfelt memorial piece DR.

Amy Brennan always said she would put something together from Chuck's memorial in the Tetons. This is really good! Lots of photos of Chuck I had never seen, lots of remembrance.

This is the summer of 1962. Chuck and I were sitting at a table in Camp 4 reading a used newpaper from the Lodge. Chuck took out his pocket knife and neatly cut out an article of a sensational nature, but ridiculous in the way the headline read. I don't recall it, but I asked Chuck, "Why are you cutting that out?". He said that he had a collection of outlandish stories from newpapers to remind him what humanity was like.

I had a wonderful stroll with my dog up/over/around Sehome Hill in Bellingham today looking at the bouldering that a young CP might have played on. There are not many routes but there is plenty to keep someone busy. There did seem to be a third wandering with our party of two...

DR recently asked me to repost this onto this thread, so here it is.

Climbing Art magazine.

Excerpts from an interview Mort Hempel did in 1986, titled "Minstrel of Despairs." Pat Ament was the interviewer in this wonderful and insightful passage into the life of Mort.

Hard to believe that I've missed this thread till now. I've read nearly every word here, shed some tears over the eloquence and love express here, I'm humbled without words of my own to add. Thank you to all who have contributed to this thread and to sharing your views of Chuck's life. I do have a few photos to add:

Nice photos. Thanks for those. Incidentally, the interview of
Mort, called "Minstrel of Despairs," was mine, in the
Climbing Art....

Good to see this thread come up again, to remember our friend.

1969 was the last year I ever saw Pratt. It must have been right around the time these photos were taken as that is exactly how I remember him. Thank you for posting them and once again bringing back the memories.
