What's that really famous picture of the three climbers in the'70s posing in El Cap meadows in front of El Cap? I believe Jim Bridwell was on of the guys but I could be wrong.

Pictured from left to right are Billy Westbay, Jim Bridwell, and John Long. The photo was taken after their sub-18 hour Nose in a day ascent.

I believe the record has been broken...

Record may have been broken - but the swagger, style and spirit never will be. One irony of that pictures is the only one without a butt is his mouth is the only one to die of lung cancer (so far).

Gabe and Burt were still peeing in their diapers and puking on their moms' shoulders when those guys did the first NIAD.
