.....of snow for August! And look at that old pack. Probably a "new" pack in 1965. Good shot!
Yeah, that is a great shot. Someday, I hope to survive long enough to be able climb mountains for almost 40 years! Pretty amazing.
40 years exactly - my first summit was the summer of 1963 :-)
Damn, the Grand was probably about a 1000 ft shorter then. Fred, you should see how much it's grown since then. :)
the title says it all...
what a place!
1965? That's an incredibly long time ago, Fred. I don't even remember being alive then, although I suppose it could be my memory might be shot. (Isn't that the first to go?) --Vernon
just looking at this picture puts my balls in my throat. yikes
Its not the height that puts my balls in my throught - its looking at that "anchor" and those ropes!
I agree. The subject of many a nightmare for me!
I wanted to climb Caslton Tower Moab after seeing it in a Natl. Geogr. mag,That is what got me motivated to start climbing . Did climb the Grand Teoton many times in the seventies and eighties
