I see I started this post 17 years ago. Now Im 71 and I have an 83 year old friend Hells Angels friend who IS THE ACTUAL SCOTT from the book about camp 4. He was the one with the (stolen) Triumph from Berkely who the rangers chased up and down the valley. He was the also the manager of the Yosemite lodge. Anyway Scott WAS one of the first to free climb Half Dome (not me) and he is still a charmer. He was from camp 4.

Anyway I gave him the book and he said Steve Roper had been his best friend. A circle closes... Peace all Jim
