I saw my first Friends in May 1978 in Yosemite. They seemed like a clever idea although I recall being concerned about their reliability with so many moving parts. At the time I declined to buy any at the extremely "steep" price of US$17.80 each (about A$15.50 at the time)! The next month in London I succumbed and bought two Friends (#2 and #3) for 14.10 in total (about A$23.40).

Back in Australia in August, Kevin Lindorff and I put up Boats Against the Current (22) at the First Dial in the Grampians using my two Friends, which is highly likely to be their first use in Australia!
(Which is why I really thought Kevin was going to name the route "What are Friends For?") :-)
