This is great, Bryan. Jay and I had a great half day on that thing on a nice sunny day in Dec. of '82. So sunny, rocks were dropping all over the road. Of course, we were in my VW convertible, but no problem, we just drove up and down the canyon with our helmets on. Later that evening at the Morrison Inn, we bumped into Layton Kor who had been bouldering up the hill getting back into shape after not climbing much for a few years. He doesn't remember our first meeting, but I sure do. Anyhow, this photo brings up a lot of memories, thanks posting it. We still need to grab a beer one of these days and catch up. Dec 17, 2011
Yo, Allen, sorry I missed this post until now - computer confusing. Great to hear you guys were there. Cool, isolated spot, huh? Students of mine have reported sensing that they were stalked by cougars on the approach. I thought the same thing, too, on occasion. I remember helmeting up for a drive down from St. Mary's Glacier in ice road conditions. Amazing for you to meet Kor, the Great One. Young climbers all to often have never heard of Kor and his contemporaries. What great and inspired climbing they did. Nov 8, 2012
