Very nice. Thanks for posting
Looks like people were pretty hardy back then...altitude didn't seem to bother them. I loved the footage of them zooming up half dome ! Those guys had Chick-On speed smiling smiley
Interesting to note the size of Lyell glacier also.

That was made in the same era as the Keystone Cops movies. I don't know exactly what went into determining when/how much the speed of the motion would get changed, but speeding it up for effect seems to have been popular. Here's an example from 1915 that includes the Keystone Cops toward the end: https://archive.org/details/love_speed_and_thrills

Somethings never change. Even back then, hikers were eating Chef Boyardee out of a can (in the film, after summiting Mount Lyell). grinning smiley

Lots of snow when they climbed Lyell. I wonder how they got there without a single jacket from Patagonia?
