  1. Great initiative. As a climber and History graduate I’ve long felt that these oral historical records are real treasures.

    How about making them available to download, a la Dirtbag Diaries.


    • Thanks, Henry. These are available for download if you go to the internet archive link. We are also going to make some available on Itunes. Even better, when our new website is ready, it will all be searchable and available to members! Keep checking back for updates on that initiative!
