An elegantly dressed Roger Bennett on the Cinque Dita/Fünffingerspitzen, Dolomites, 1972. Anyone name all the gear?
© jon, Aug 1972
Fabulous - Whillans Sack with the detachable lid, 2 of those wonderful Moacs, Stubai peg hammer (still got mine for jobs around the house), EBs,the standard issue socks, shirt and helmet - all finished off with the holed keks - I hadn't realised gear had changed that much till I saw this - Thankyou. Oh and it's probably a Troll waist harness and is that a Peck cylindrical something-or-other?

Certainly got 90% of it... I'd forgotten the removeable lid bit. It was three large press studs wasn't it?

Joe Brown helmet and Viking Kernmantle rope!

Clog 6 hex at the back, probably Edelrid rope

Yes, of course the hex is in fact a hexagonal, not hexcentric!

I still use a couple of moac's on my rack. Can't be beaten. Americans are phased by nuts on rope.

A bit difficult to make out but I think they are Bonatti krabs, and the helmet is probably an Ultimate.

Mix of Cassin and Bonatti krabs
Probably Edelrid rope from just before the factory burned down and other makers jumped in, at higher prices.
