A friend, Troy Rhodes, recently reconnected with me (ah, the marvels of FB) and sent a scanned photo-album pages from a couple of my very first actual climbing expeditions (both failures, but great educations in suffering!). Fun to walk down memory lane. This first set of pages comes from a March 1994 trip to Longs Peak, CO where we set out to climb Keiner's route, the easiest way up the massive East Face. We only made it to Broadway, a massive ledge system that spans the entire face before retreating. I just love the old photos - i was only 18 but already had such impeccable style. Enjoy!
