Was this image for the old Class 5 ad ever poster size or just a catalog cover? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I'm pretty sure it ran regularly on the back cover of Backpacker mag when that first came out (mid 70's?). I have the first two years' issues downstairs, I think. It was actually a high quality publication then - akin to today's Alpinist (really!). Then it got full of ads and regurgitated press releases being passed off as gear reviews.

Want me to see if I have that ad? For a few bucks I'll tear one off and you can frame it. 8-1/2 x 11 or slightly larger.
