As I was in a hurry to return to camp before dark I wasn't able to return the register to the summit. The register, grandly labeled SIERRA CLUB REGISTER No 564, covers the period 1974-1978. It is in remarkably good condition. Since the register only covers a period of four years there aren't that many entries, but there are some notables signed in such as RJ Secor and Doug Mantle. Apparently, when I got home, I put the register in a box with some old climbing pictures and, after almost 30 years, I just re-discovered it. So, who is collecting and archiving old summit registers? I heard once the Bancroft Library at UC Berkeley was preserving them. Anybody know?
