Rock Climbing Photos : Misc : Pete Schoening & Grandpa on Rainier

Pete Schoening & Grandpa on Rainier

Pete Schoening & Grandpa on Rainier

This is my Grandfather talking with Pete Schoening at Camp Muir on Mt. Rainier in 1962 (Mt. St. Helens in the background). That's Pete in the center of the shot with the rag and goggles on his head, and Grandpa next to him. These two men inspired me to start mountaineering, and one of those ices axes in the photo is what I used on my first climb. My Grandfather introduced Pete to mountaineering (on Mt. Adams) when Pete was 18 and working for my Grandfather, who was District Ranger of the Randle district on the Columbia National Forest (later renamed the Gifford Pinchot National Forest).
