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!
