This is a picture of my friend Del at the top of the Lion's Back in Moab, Utah. In the interest of safety, he had decided to leave the ever faithful, Michael at the bottom. Michael, thinking Del must be out of his mind to attempt such an ascent without his (Michael's) guidance, takes a watchful position at the bottom of the rock to assess the chances of his master's safe return. The photo was taken by Frank Kilian, who obviously learned from a master (grin) using my superior equipment rather than his usual Hasselblads.
