My old climbing mates from the 60's, Colin Read and Johnny Adams asked if I would post some of their old photo' pleasure.
I held these back until the anniversary of their first ascent 55years years ago this weekend.
Photographer Johnny Adams.
Sadly many of the slides are in poor condition hence strange colours etc. Included for historical importance and interest.
