OK, you guys obviously appreciate Atomic Number 79 as much as Herr Sutter did.

In principle, this is a scenic bridge.

Yes, nice touch. And that group provided us with person who represents the answer to the trivia question "who finished second to Ralph Nader in 2000?"

But it is quite famous in its own right.

IMHO, Harvey is more subtle than anyone so far. His words provide a clue but, if he got it, it went right over my head.

Wagga clue: In principle, this is a scenic bridge.

Latin Bridge (Bosnian: Latinska &#263;uprija, named Principov most - "Princip Bridge" in Yugoslavian era)

One of the bridges over the River Miljacka. Beside this bridge, on 28th June 1914, Gavrilo Princip assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria-Hungary and his wife, Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg.

this is getting so obscure
did anyone get the Ford Theater one?
guess so, right click and see the jpg address, duh.

so, at risk of killing the interest in this thread, see if anyone can identify this mountain , clue: Ed's first significant climb was on one of its subsidiary peaks.

wagga is innocent on this one, although you would be making a compliment to deem it a wagga-style clue.

I'm assuming that wagga got it. That is, I assume that he was listing the elevation in feet and not the Zip code. It does look like a mountain of that altitude, one which starred in a movie once.

Well, in Dilbert they made a stuffed hand puppet out of the pointy-haired boss when he died (dramatically increasing his effectiveness). So, assuming that a captain died on his last voyage should not be automatic.

But I do see that I have the correct mountain, thanks to your brief clue. And I know that no real Zip codes start with 123...

So, this mountain has played a larger one in a movie in which (a) Ed appeared and (b) the essential link between serious mountaineering and nitriglycerine was revealed to an unsuspecting world.

Before we get into a new location, can somebody enlighten the rest of us as to which mountain is in Harvey's picture?

Sorry -- I wanted to make someone else look 'em up too. shocked

12316 is not a real one. Admittedly, no one claimed otherwise.
