Oh, please, Douglas is as sharp as a tack. I should know. I'll bet you are, too. Doing any climbing? I avoid it as much as possible.
Okay, I came back and redid this screed; to my horror, I said Doug Scott broke his ankle on the Ogre.... Not at all, he broke both legs below the knee....
So, my Douglas says hello back, Scott. I had YD plates as well, for 16 years. How do you like that?

Not Doug. Other than his bug eyed mountaineering glasses he didn't wear normal glasses at the time. Plus the hair is way too short, Doug had seriously long hair at the time. Whoever it is borrowed my chalk bag, and I think even my green swami belt. Anyhow I'm now leaning towards Rosholt (who I think is still alive as well). He was around that year. In the end, it doesn't really matter, it was Charles who pulled it off.
Hi Back Jean!, living in Santa Monica with a bum shoulder. I go one-arm bouldering at Joshua Tree and Malibu Creek occasionally. Mostly play in the surf 4 blks from my apt., only a Gunny person gets my moniker :-)
Never did think it was Doug because of the glasses and hair. I still contend that this is a pic of Johnny Rotten. The only thing that doesn't fit is the shoes. Rosholt climbed in green shoenards most of the time not old school EBs.

I'm sure that who ever it is is wearing my swami belt and chalk bag. And those could be my shoes as well. John maybe just showed up gear less and used mine for a shot at the roof.
So, the consensus is that this is someone you all know well enough to lend gear to, but not well enough to recognize later. That sounds about right. Meanwhile, I would have been working and living at Harmel's Ranch Resort, in '81. You all were a tourist attraction, I hope you know.
