Ansel Adams printing Moonrise, Hernandez.

Mostly talking about it, but always interesting to see.

Here's another very interesting piece of film:  Ansel, Virginia Best, Cedrick Wright and others climbing to the Diving Board via Grizzly Peak gully.  I can't believe they pulled it off in the snow.  I've been up this route in better weather with Chris Johnson.  We didn't make it, ran long on time, hadn't planned to be out overnight, the fog closed in, it got dark and we endured a very cold sleepless night at about 8000 feet in the Sierras in early June.  We did make it two other trips, up past Nevada Fall and taking the easier route around the back of Liberty Cap.  Tricky routefinding.  We spent the night both times.  Hope to visit at least once more and take Katie up.

Late afternoon with the shadow of North Dome on the face.

Ansel in Yosemite, 1974.


Ansel was only up there twice, this trip and once before.
