The Rock Climbing Years

Ray Jardine

Jenny and I traveled to Colorado Springs to visit relatives, and while hiking through the Garden of the Gods we came across my first hard free climb: Montezuma's Tower, North Ridge 5.7. Back in 1964 it was an unprotected run-out with only one point of protection, a piton I pounded in, half way up. Jenny is bouldering the first set of moves.

Montezuma's Tower, North Ridge - face on.
