Swelley..

Good memory, but it's Jim Gorin with the one leg.

I found a Sierra Club historical persons site.

Jim had a comment that he could climb better with one leg cause he did not have the extra weight hanging on him. Ha Ha aha .....

Ray is his bro, both were long time climbers, Sierra Club members.

Right above there listings is one for "K. Goodykuntz" now that is a name I seem to remember from BITD.

I thought hard about posting these pictures, but decided it would be ok.

It was a sad but very special day when climbers and friends came to Stoney Point from all over the place to remember their friend, mentor, The Master, Bob Kamps.

Juan,

You got any pictures of Mommas Boy? I always like setting up shop doing laps on the Iguana on days that I cut high school classes.

Wow, that last photo is quite the role call. Lots of hard climbing stretched among them.

Is Beverly (Woolsey) where the 'Mama Woolsey' route name originated?

Yep, she would be That Momma, Woolsey.

Funny note about Papa Woolsey, Chris Wegoner was new to Josh and had started bolting that face when Powell showed up and booted him off as too inexperienced to deserve such a fine line.

Yes.

Good shots Kris. What I remember most about that day, was when a falcon keep swooping down close to the climbers. I have never seen a falcon before or since at Stoney.

I think it was a sign.

Yes, I remember that bird. Came through right at the end - a very beautiful flight.

I know we're all in the same boat: still can't go to Stoney Point without having fond memories of Bob Kamps. He was there when I made my first visit in January 1992 I think. He saw a new face and gave us the tour. I made the mistake of telling him I climbed in the Gunks, so he saved Hot Tuna for last.

Few things in climbing measure up to being artfully sandbagged by the best.

Guyman - The one legged climber was Gorin, first name either Ray or Roy. He was always a surprise to see when he attacked the rock. I didn't take the shots, I believe a friend named Dave Harvey did. I'm to the right between Yvon and Harry "Latex" Daley who also called himself "the Mace" because he was a Sierra Clubber. TM Herbert is on the left.

In looking at the air view of the area, the biggest change is that the old road was two lanes and was at the same level as Boulder #1

BBA, Thanks for the info.

Lot's of fun over the years at the point. I started climbing there in 1973 and guys like Yvon, TM,RR, Kamps were legendary figures.

We will add you to the list.

Got any more photos?

Post em up.
