The cover of the December...
The cover of the December 1974 issue of Summit Magazine-one of my favorites. Entitled a Peek at Lenin. A climber grasps the art of Socialist Realism at 7406m

"Summit" was one of the few domestic climbing magazines back then. I had a subscription till they stopped publishing around 1990. Once in a while I would be more self indulgent and get an issue of "Mountain" published in Britain by Ken Wilson. Their photos even of the second on a pitch made one's palms sweat. "Mountain" was the "Alpinist" of its day.

I used to subscribe to Summit Magazine as well. Those were the goodol days! I never saw this cover shot. It must have been before I subscribed.
Interesting shot though.

Was this photo attached to a recap of the "international climbing summit" held in the Caucasus that year?

John Roskelley and some Americans were there, as was Doug Scott I believe. I think this is also when a Russian womens team was killed.

I'm fascinated by this time period in World Mountaineering. Does Summit have a report?
