Then and now, valley dirtbags
« on: April 29, 2009, 04:54:40 pm »
Does anyone recall that story (might have been a Steve Roper or a Galen Rowell piece) where there was a 1960's photo from Camp 4 and a quote "Who let in the riff raff". . . . and then it went on to document how each person had gone on to great things. Scientist, entrepreneur, professor. . .

I need to find a copy of that article!

I should've stayed a dirtbag. Now I just slave all the time.
Stupid "Real World". Who's idea was this?

Yeah, yeah, I know.....What a whiner.
I'll wait my turn for glory...... ;-)

I've looked through Roper's books Ordeal by Piton and Camp 4, and also the Alpinist issue 25 which was on Yosemite. Still can't find that story.

I've googled it to death, can't seem to find anything, I'd sure love to see that though if anyone happens to find it.
