Fall of 1970, Little Canyon Mountain, Oregon.
I think there is a road to the summit but my friend Jerry and I hiked up from my house in Canyon City. I recall it as a surpisingly hard bushwack, dirt scrabble climbing 2500' in about a 1.5 miles.

And that has to be my girl friend's chalkbag. I wouldn't be caught dead with something like that in my kit...

Climbing a roadcut in the Adirondacks, between Long Lake and Tupper Lake as I recall...

Wow! some of my first climbing was on roadcuts in the Adirondacks, particularly east of Gouverneur. The drill lines (for dynamite) are memorable.

I recall trying to downclimb a route, with a hairy intermediate section. A woman stopped to watch me, and began shouting, "He's going to fall! He's going to die! I just know it!"

When I got down, I indicated that I really didn't appreciate her comments.


How'd you indicate it? :wink:

Used to have the same problem with gawkers. Unfortunately one of my favorite areas to climb was right above a summer camp. I've heard "don't fall! Huh huh huh huh!" more times than Wilt Chamberlain's had sex.

p.s. Sorry, no scanned pictures of me as a climbing kid. Actually, that's probably a good thing. Apology rescinded.
