Donald Clayton and Wallace Sargent near the beginning of their climb with Hoyle and Fowler of Ben Sgritheall, a 3200 ft "Munro" in the western highlands of Scotland. June 1969. The weather was outstandingly benign for Wester Ross. Sargeant and Clayton had accepted Hoyle's 5-year invitation to be part of Hoyle's Institute of Theoretical Astronomy as summer appointees. Clayton was an avid summer climber with Hoyle, and Sargeant accompanied several times. Photo was snapped with Clayton's camera by Willy Fowler.
