Brilliant photo. Brilliant caption.

Nope never was and we never thought it was, me and Ron knew how to grade things (6a), Geoff knew how to sell magazines, see the thread.

You can just see where Ian Parson's head was whited out _ just above Ron's

It would have screwed the picture, If Geoff had let me do it it would not have been noticeable amongst all that gray. I may even do it now, though it will be harder on the glossy mag cover

Proof that grade hype to sell mags is no new thing ..
If Climber was 35p I might just buy it !

I have retouched out the white blob that was Ian Parsons but now I have ended up with a purple line down the scan :-(

Sorry, Al.

I see you've put the original back Al.
