I like the eerie light, and the wooden ice axe. Classic!
Oh yes, the wooden handle ice axe made by Chouinard Equipment. My favorite axe, although I have a couple of those fancier ones too.
Thank you much for checking out some of older, but not forgotten, photos, and many thanks for your votes.
looks serious! Great atmosphere in that shot, it could have come from an old Mountain magazine.
Actually, it wasn't that bad. The white-out didn't last very long. But, we knew bad weather was on the way and we had to finish the climb. We went down the other side of the mountain in a storm. If we had died, we could have been mentioned in the Mountain Mag.
Thanks for the visit, Charles,
