5.9 WI3 M4... in 1962. Think about that: no reverse curved picks with bamboo shafts at best, no goretex or other breathable water proof, wool instead of polypro, leather double boots vs. plastic... in 1962 this route would have been an extremely serious undertaking.

And what a beautiful pic to underline that 54 years later, it's still a serious undertaking. Awesome! Mar 20, 2016
