I like Beckey's taste in haberdashery. What style.

I've added a photo of the two first ascenitionists that is from the Museum of Moab. It was taken by Fran Barnes. The museum also has one of one of the two guys just about to summit. I'll try and get a copy of it from the records room. Its from afar and you can see the dust on the rock near the new bolts. I think we need to keep in mind that desert climbing required a different mindset then. There were no large cams to utilize when going up the crack, etc.
