"To climb Mont Blanc by the Grepon route is one thing; to climb Rum Doodle is, as Totter once said, quite another."

-W.E. Bowman, "The Ascent of Rum Doodle"


"My friend George Mallory, for instance, who later disappeared close to the summit of Mount Everest, once did an inexplicable climb on Snowdon. He had left his pipe on a ledge, half-way down one of the Lliwedd precipices, and scrambled back by a short cut to retrieve it, then up again by the same route. No one saw what route he took, but when they came to examine it the next day for official record, they found an overhang nearly all the way. By a rule of the Climbers’ Club climbs are never named in honour of their inventors, but only describe natural features. An exception was made here. The climb was recorded as follows: ‘Mallory’s Pipe, a variation on Route 2; see adjoining map. This climb is totally impossible. It has been perfomed once, in failing light, by Mr G. H. L. Mallory.’"

-Robert Graves, "Goodbye To All That"


"Scott for scientific method, Amundsen for speed and efficiency but when disaster strikes and all hope is gone, get down on your knees and pray for Shackleton."

-Raymond Priestly


"I don't know whether you fully understand that I have just been shot; but it takes more than that to kill a Bull Moose."

-Teddy Roosevelt


"Technique is our protection."

-Chuck Pratt


"Beckey explained to me that he'd never made those climbs. He just thought they looked good and he had made some educated guesses about the route description."

-Kenn Carpenter


"On the first ascent of Alaska's Devils Thumb, in 1946, Cliff Schmidtke and I were about to prepare dinner in the tent. Fred brought out a bag of what appeared to be crumbling, dried beans. Inside we noticed what looked like eggs or larvae. It turned out the beans were left over from Mount Waddington in '42. We were hungry enough that we ate the whole thing."

-Bob Craig


"I hiked up Pugh one day. There was a garden rake leaning against the wall. 'Who's gardening up here?' Nels Bruseth came out. He told me he used it for an ice axe."

-Harold Engles


"Sloan is such an easy climb. You could take your mother up in a wheelbarrow."

-Harry Bedal


"One day I was sent to Tin Can Gap to get more dynamite. As I was carrying the load up the ladders to the summit, I kept hearing an odd sound...It sounded like the humming of a Model T coil....An electrical storm was imminent. Harry told me to take off my hat. My hair stood on end. He scratched his head and said, 'We better get out of here.' Considering the amount of dynamite I was carrying, that was an understatement."

-Ed Towne


"One day in 'Forty-one, I crawled under the cabin (that's where the pack rats lived) just to see what they had collected over the years. I found silverware, string, rope, and three sticks of dynamite...Had the pack rat dropped a stick at the right angle, it would have blown all of us to Timbuktu. I carefully retrieved the three sticks and heaved them over the 2,000 foot east face."

-Harry Tucker
