Famous Quotes in Mountaineer History

In January 1995 famed climber Jeff Lowe was visiting the Adirondacks teaching ice climbing.
Jeff refers to a good ice axe placement as a "portable belay".
One of his clinic padawans was The Mountaineers Chuck Bruha...
And while on thin ice with no protection during a difficult first ascent Chuck asks Jeff...

"So tell me the truth Jeff, is every stick a belay there?"

This great quote in Mountaineer history is captured in Jeff's instructional video, "Waterfall Ice".
