Classic photos of outdoor adventures in the 60s 19-Mar-2014 At 8:19:31 AM FatCanyoner
G'day folks,

I've just posted an amazing collection of colour photos from bushwalks, canyons and climbs in the 1960s, as taken by former Sydney Uni Bushwalker Graham Wootton.

I particularly though the image of Athol Abrahams and Wendy Butler (daughter of Dot Butler) on the first ascent of the west face of the Castle in the Budawangs in 1966 might be interesting to folks here (see below).

Graham has also written some of his recollections about canyoning in the era. Particularly interesting are the details of the incredibly basic technical gear (and techniques) they used. The idea that two rope burns across the left shoulder were a mark of experience seems extraordinary!

Anyway, you can see the full collection of photos, and read about Grahams adventures, here:
