Comments: This is my absolutely favorite picture of the Diamond! No other picture I can think of shows the spectacular surroundings and the amazing position of the Diamond in this jaw dropping setting. Great geology too! I poached this for my desktop backdrop.

Comments: What a great photo! Nigro on the left and Mr. Panek 2nd from right. What's the guys name on the far right? He almost made the US cycling team, talk was that it was just politics that kept him out. I remember hearing him "spin" for hours on his rollers, he would ride from Gunnison to Crested Butte and back TWICE in an afternoon! The other names have been lost in my oldtimers memory.

Comments: It is a very cool shot, but is that preplaced gear? It doesn't look like she is carrying a rack.

Comments: Does anyone climb on the slab that is N. of I-70 just E. of the turnoff for Berthoud Pass (if you are headed W.)? I did some climbs there in 73-74 when I was living in Georgetown, it might be on private property. It's pretty short and has kind a cave/chimney on the top right side.

Comments: I'm with Allen, this area has a great tradition of minimal rock defacement. Respect the area and the history.

Allen, what all did you "get on" your last trip there? Inquiring minds want to know :-)

Comments: Matt, that is the finest group of pictures of that area that I have ever seen. It took me right back there, my brain had started to lose the memory of the grandeur of that magical place.

An old climbing buddy of mine and Outward Bound instructor (mid to late '70s), John Lafferty, used to take groups of students up that thing in K-mart flip flops that he had altered into "climbing flops" by putting Vibram soles on the bottom and Astro Turf on the top!

Comments: Hi Jean, I knew which you were talking about. If Doug tries real hard and thinks back through the '70s haze, he'll remember me, Scott Mossman, hope he's doing well.

Comments: Well, there you go, I was just starting to feel good about myself. If you're talking about the right-facing dihedral furthest to the left, I guess now the only way I can justify that it felt like 5.9 is the big boots we were wearing :-)

Comments: Ahhhh! The green belt is there. That makes more sense, always thought it looked too "wiry" for Rosholt.
