George Bell considered climbing the Colorado 14 foot peaks to be very much something only for “Wimps”. Only Himalayan climbs and high risk rock climbs without belays were “mountaineering”.On the El Diente to Mount Wilson ridge climb the only conversation was Bell asking“Do you STILL want to stay roped” andMader saying “Yes”. When we got off the mountain to a stream he took off his boots and proudly showed his missing toes from being frozen on KT22.
