I havenít got the guide book handy but I can guess what the photo is. Glenn on the crack/flake at the start of Ralph [wearing a Joe Brown helmet if I remember correctly]. Believe it or not there used to be an aid to start the climb pretty much straight off the ground! The photo was erroneously captioned in an old Argus as Glenn freeing that first aid move. In fact on the occasion the photo was taken he failed, as did the rest of us, to even free that first move [he came back and freed it later]. So the first attempt at freeing Ralph failed about 3m off the deck! Not an auspicious start. In the days before modern sticky rubber everything on granite slabs used to seem extreme!!
