HAHA!

When was this shot taken? All these knickers, boots and woolen clothing looks like something from the 40's! Very cool.

I think to remember it was the early spring of 1975 ... some 30 years ago, not more :)

Goodness! That explains the webbing and harnesses. The other pics on this page are quite interesting as well, in a historical sort of way. Nice stuff!

Re: HAHA!

thanks :)
that's the way we used to climb when we were young, I can still remember my first "baudrier" (kind of climbing belt) it was a "Renè Desmaison" belt and its metal rings suddenly opened while I was climbing an aided roof ... (I was almost 20 yo)
