What a superb shot Paul - it captures the atmosphere of the times perfectly. You say the sixties but it must have been very early, 1962 at the latest surely.
I recognised yourself, Ted, Maggie and Jud immediately but had to look twice at Dave and Eddie.
What were you all looking at ? Martin isn't in the photo so perhaps he was climbing at the time.

If it was '62 that would mean John(Jud)was 15 !

Martin, I think was doing Praying mantis and I gave up smoking in '65 to improve my climbing, it did'nt of course and Martins still going well.
