Three Fingered Jack

July 21, 1973

Leader did not think there was sufficient visibility to see rocks being knocked onto each other. Only two pair of wool gloves in party and strong wind. Intuition insisted that leader thin out climbing party to Thaxton and Procter who were well equipped, strong and knew summit. It was my decision to split party irregardless of Gene Thaxton’s doubts about the irregularity of the procedure.

Some were cold and some were eager but without and knowledge of technique. Good decision and would do it again, as have for 43 years. Gene Thaxton and Bud Procter made the summit. Others along for the ride were: Ken Lyles, Joel McClure, Andy McLure, Mike Russel. Norm Lee, Ldr.
