Comments: On the FA I led the first pitch and placed the anchor bolts. Randy led the exciting second pitch and placed those bolts.

Comments: I placed that 1/4" bolt while leading the FA from the one foot stance. It was a somewhat strenuous drill. I did have a decent spot though!

Comments: If I remember correctly there was a bit of a race to do the FA of this climb. I think Kevin Powell had his eye on it but Charles and Kelley got there first and bagged the coveted FA. Hence, the Early Bird got the Worm!

Comments: I think the crag should be dynamited so the crack runs all the way to the top. Finger size preferred.

Comments: You actually exit into the left crack (with bush) and do a couple of face moves to the ledge.

Comments: I free soloed this route while we were doing the FA of Last Unicorn. This was in 1979 (Al's book says 1980). At the time I was pretty sure it was an FA also.

Comments: I just realized that my comment regarding OW's sounded a bit flippant, didn't mean that. When I started climbing it was important to us to be all around climbers. A guy (or gal, not enough women climbing then) who could climb hard face but couldn't climb the equivalent level in cracks was not "a Real Climber". We looked down our noses at them. Yes, we were pompous punks! Consequently, many would devote a season or more to the discipline they were the weakest at, usually OW! I always admired tho... more >>

Comments: As is usually the case, a crack's difficulty is determined by hand size. You've all heard it (I hope!), " big hands, big weenie."

Comments: In the picture of the cliff you can see Chris Miller (following) and Nathan Fitzhugh on on the right side of the cliff. This was either a First Ascent or possibly the line of "Ranking Carl" (a rare and esoteric 5.8). Picture taken on 3/2/03.
