I know this is another "butt shot" ... but I'm posting it for it's historic value.

I love your “historic” shots. They kind of make me think that I’m paging through my old copy of Climb!

You're welcome, I'm glad you like them. They bring back some nice memories for me, too. Wish I could still climb like I did in those days.
Peace, Jim

I gotta say, that's a damn good "butt shot"! The angle of being off to the side a little bit, and the thematic vertical lines (the cliffs, Layton's angular body, the rope) makes a great symmetry. I don't think I've seen a better one.

And...wow...you climbed with Layton Kor! :-D

Thanks, glad you like the picture. Layton was a great climbing partner, even if I did have a difficult time following him, sometimes.
Peace, Jim

Thanks ... I'm not sure the picture is that good, but your assessment of Layton is right on.
Peace, Jim
