'Rob Large-ing It' on Rainy Day Women - 1980



Do you ever "Rob Large it?"

I used to, but not any more. You can click here to understand what I mean by 'Rob Large-ing it.'

Check out the blue jeans, knotted slings [sewn ones didn't exist!] and the hex.

You can just see the orange toe of my Galibier Contacts, the hardest rubber you could find. In these days before retreads, when the toes wore out, I put my shoes on the opposite feet!

This photo was taken twenty-three years ago in 1980, but looks like it could have been taken yesterday. See all the chalk on my hands?? Me neither. I was part of the Clean Hands Gang.

My caving mentor Chas Yonge led the pitch. It's still a bold lead. My other caving mentor Tom Miller told me that I was now a better climber than him, at least above ground.
