Beyond the Truck: Grand Canyon Solitaire


Well-known member
"Along a particularly treacherous ridge, Barbara took the lead because the team felt she’d be light enough to haul up if the ground crumbled beneath her. She had left her newborn daughter at home to make the journey. “I tried to appear calm and confident, but I was really trembling with fear as I climbed ahead,” she later said. “But I did not slip and none of the cornices gave way, and everyone followed safely behind me.”

I'll bet she was fun to work with. I'm not sure she's any more forgotten than Bradford. I typically see both of them mentioned in articles, as they should be.
