Gendarme west face before it fell

This is the only picture that I have showing the Gendarme as it stood in spring 1978. A bandit attempted to blow it up around 1920 as the tale goes. It finally tipped over in fall 1987.

climb soon and climb fast!

"It finally tipped over in fall 1987. "

Many of UT's "skinniest" towers are discussed in the context "because it may not be there long" :)

Ah, yes...

I remember climbing to very near the Gendarme in '86 or so, and thinking I'd come back with gear and climb it sometime.

Not to be!
