Inspired by Dow's Early photos from your beginning... thread, I've created this album to capture and organize our old-school photos from the early days of our climbing careers.

Many of the members of this community have been climbing for decades and have the photographic evidence to prove it! All climbing, mountaineering and mountain hiking / hill walking disciplines welcome!

We'll take everything from old glory shots with sentimental value to those images that make us all roll our eyes as you basked in what was then "high alpine style."

This album has seen it all:
- Mutton chop sideburns
- Mullets
- Pigtails
- Floppy old bell--bottoms
- Home-made climbing gear
- Those eye-glasses that automatically turn darker in bright sunlight
- Skinny young chicken legs

So, share with SP those images of your younger climbing years. We can't wait!

Re: Yup, Sarah ...


Please, go ahead and dredge up something ancient and perfectly incriminating. ;)

Re: Cool Album!

There's an old pic of me floating around somewhere. I'll have to see if I can find it and scan it in.
