Good pictures - That pink/red/purple? suit stands out!

There must be more gems like this out there. Everybody just needs to dig a little deeper in their archives and share the fun and embarassment.

Fortmental - anybody who has climbed on Robson glacier in painter pants and an external frame pack must have some more. Gangolf even put up a picture of himself in white shorts and high socks. What else is out there?

Good pics Dingus - like the guy in the yellow hard hat and cowboy boots and the guy in the red and blue checked pj's.

Sounds a bit familiar. We would head to Garden of the Gods (in Colorado Springs) and climb with steel shanked mountaineering boots. The only thing we used a rope for was to haul the beer to the top.

A mid 80's ascent of Sexy Sadie, in Joshua Tree. That climb is committing and scary.

Note the green rubber 5.10 prototype shoes and Grammicci pants adorned with the Stonemaster trademark lightning bolts. Check the prototype "air voyager" load limiter on the 1/4" x 1" bolt.
