Ricardo Cassin

There is a thread on supertopo today about the passing of Ricardo Cassin.

In 2005, Bradford Washburn gave the AAC a photo album given to him by Ricardo Cassin in thanks for Washburn’s assistance “in the solution of the many problems of the South Face of Mount McKinley”.

You can now see those photos on our flickr page. Most of the photos are not captioned. If you can help us caption them, please join flickr and add your comments or notes, or send us an email here at the library.

  2. One of the Lecco Spiders…many great ascents…a climbing legend that will be remembered.

  3. Awesome! Thanks for continuing to share your photos!
