I just love this image of Dale! IMO: Dale is right up there with ANY of the true heros of the sport of rock climbing! Easly one of the best crack climbers that ever lived. Dale excelled on ice as well.Check out the image of Dale on pg.103 of Yvon Chouinard's "Climbing Ice"

Dale has always been a hero to me. He was such a badass in Yosemite back in the day.

If there is anything suspect going on, it's important to build a bombproof SERENE/ERNEST anchor!

The black and white, overly dark version of this photo from John Long's Climbing Anchors is not nearly as cool. Awesome.

Some corrections:
1. the belay was constructed by Dave Diegelman, not Bridwell
2. there was indeed a bolt as well, not a rumor.

Utterly classic. How many times did I gaze wistfully at this decades ago and dream of Yosemite.

It's frightening to set up any belay this dicey. Alas if it's all you got, well there you go. Suck it up and get it done!
