How great it is this photo popping up as the photo of the moment while this epic Platte thread is happening. Drinking beer under Big Rock with Dave and Noel. Couldn't be better. May 20, 2010

Scott and Allan, I posted an image of the page in "Climb" with Dave Bell leading Tongo that both of you mentioned. I posted it on MP in my album labeled "My Stuff". I would have liked to have posted here, but I was unsuccessful.
Slim, Allan posted that great image of Dave by the river. I am glad that we all have access to it here on MP. Nov 13, 2008

That picture of Dave doing Tongo with Mark Jensen was taken right about the time that I met him. In fact the old toyota cruiser in the background of the photo belongs to Chuck Tolton, an old climbing partner of Daves and the person that started me climbing. I didn't know him too well, but I always thought that Dave was the epitome of a "really cool guy", friendly, unassuming, quick to smile and made you feel comfortable even if you couldn't match his climbing skills. He seemed to save all of his aggresive strength for the rock. Jul 2, 2007
