Wow!! Look at all that 1 inch webbing Randy has wrapped around his waist. He must have 20 feet wrapped in 10 coils. Oh yes! The pre-modern harness days... even before the famous Willans (sp?) Harness showed up on the scene. I used to do the same thing way back then and remember always finding it hard to breath with all that stuff coiled around my waist.... I think I got my first Willans in 1983.
Shoes look like mean Vasque 'Ascenders', all thick full grain leather, stiff as a rail and great for aid or trad edgeing. The 2" 'swami' belt was a true classic. I couldn't afford my first Whillens harness until about 78' and still have it in my climbing museum today.
