Climbed with Andy Petefish. There were three of us, Pat Murphy, Fred and I. We followed the Durance route and had a ball. It is the only rock climbing I had ever done and I sure picked a beautiful one to start on.

It was a beautiful day and we started a little after dawn at the parking lot and were back down a little after noon.

Afterward, as we sat in the pool at the KOA camp and looked at the Tower, it was hard for me to believe I had actually climbed the thing. I was 55 at the time.

Andy was a fine guide with lots of patience. It was a day I will never forget
