Then and Now!

I thought this was  kinda fun!




                                                      Cascade Falls
Top of Cascade 1973


Top of Cascade 2012


Snivellling Gully

3rd pitch, Snivelling Gully 1977


3rd pitch, Snivelling Gully 2012
and at almost exactly the same place, just a lot more relaxed


With no helmets you always had a good reason for a big hat and wanted to be leading!



Professor's Falls



Ist pitch of Professor's 1978




Ist Pitch of Professor's 2012


Within just a few feet of the same position in each picture on each climb.
Just 39, 35 and 34 years  and a gazillion miles between them.

Life is indeed very good!

And what's amazing is the tools you're holding on the first time you climbed those routes are probably worth more, to collectors, than the new ones you used the last time you were there!
