Vic Thomas, I'm pretty sure.

Thanks, I think you are right.

Did you do the East Buttress of Middle Cathedral with Vic?
jon - 18/Mar/18Report
Yes I did, great day out! How did you know?
AlanS_748 - 18/Mar/18Report
My diary says 'East Buttress of Middle with Elaine, Vic and Alan.' So I guessed maybe you were the Alan!

Ah, so I must know you? We didn't do the route together did we, I only remember Vic? My memory is a bit selective at times!

No, I climbed with my girlfriend Elaine and you climbed with Vic. I knew Vic from a climbing wall in Redditch and did a few Yosemite/Tuolumne routes with him that September. I think it was that year that Geraldine got benighted on the East Buttress so we made sure to carry a box of matches with us so we could have a fire, just in case. Didn't need them, obviously! I knew Nipper from Pembroke. I didn't know Martin but I think he did salathe with Pod that year. He later married Geraldine, of course.

Yep! I remember all that, I just can't place you?

Jon, was it you who had a motorbike that year?

No, I had a green VW Beetle with a New Jersey plate. We drove it NJ > California > NJ.

Nipper is wearing exactly the same clothes that he wore when we did the nose
