Taken from the voie normale of the Zinal Rothorn, just before the summit, at a guess.

Its taken on my 1959 Rolleicord which I still use professionally to this day.

A superb photo, bringing back happy memories of one of the first great climbing experiences of my life (in 1967, a few months after doing Flying Buttress and Spiral Stairs on the Cromlech).

In the early sixties Eric Rayson and I had a harrowing descent down this ridge in the middle of a thunderstorm, after having had an equally harrowing ascent of the East Face with barrow loads of stone fall all day. Will never forget it.

Agfachrome or Ectachorme? From the look of the blues, I'm guessing Agfa.

The image has held up well indeed.

Sorry to have taken so long to rely. Its been a busy time. Just went and checked. Its Kodak EPN 6012. Which was the film I needed at the time for consistency commercially at the time.
