Richard Rossiter
May 5, 2007
Richard Rossiter starting the first pitch of the West Gully, 1977. Photo by Tim Hogan. The gear is novel: Galibier leather boots, hinged crampons, wool knickers, Dachstein mits, home-made sit harness and rucksack, oval carabiners on 1-inch webbing, Stubai solid ice screws, Forest Mjolner (ice hammer), Rooster Head axe (right hand), Ultimate climbing helmet, et cetera. This is not an actual climber of course, but a manikin in a glass case, at the Smithsonian.
