Snow Blind (23)
1978. There has been quite a bit of discussion over on Chockstone lately about Snow Blind (23) at Arapiles. These pics show Tony Marian climbing it (back in the days when shorts were bordering on the obscene) about 6 months after it's first ascent by Coral Bowman and Chris Peisker. The old bolt can be seen as can the pin (which has apparently been known to fail). Tony is wearing a Whillans harness (not something you would want to fall in and expect to one day father any children). No cams in those days either.
