Bruno Zielke lowering off Fang
1960s. Bruno Zielke lowering off Fang (17) at Mt Arapiles. To be fair the pants look modern (they could pass for a pair of Prana's), but the underpants are definitely from another era. The seat-belt webbing harness was standard issue and this pic perfectly illustrates why trad climbers lived by the motto that 'the leader never falls'. Photo Bruno Zielke collection.
