Comments: Eric, I climbed it in the early 90's and dont recall Pins but mabye I was on another climb although I am looking at the book and it seems to be the same route, for me it was the bolted crack, and looking at the book it states FA: RR,BM, but someone told me when I lived in Sierra Vista,that HS did it with gear only and was the FA just dont recall pins, anywho... Could never get Skid Mark, just too hard for me I guess... I met you in'91 or so , thank you for all your work on Lemmon!

Comments: Thanks Rich, Was thinking of getting out there soon, and your info. helps, to make me go and camp out ontop of BigMo for 1 yr. and see what happens, just kidding... I dont get into that cr*p... There is always a way down but there is always an easier and safer way too, thats what gets me, what are two bolts but two bolts, whats safer two bolts or gear? Sorry for the rant!

Comments: This was a favotite of mine as warm up to what I was really there for, although have not been on it since 1998-1999, prior to getting on "I have (had) the touch" and Cosmic. I just feel at home there... Such a nice setting! and great climbs with no-one around, like the .10 on the side of the pillar, soooo much fun, gosh, I gotta get back, if not just to cuise and hang in the cabin below :) What made it "had" the touch anyways? (I heard a flake or sumting broke) I thought it was hard in the 90... more >>

Comments: Fun start to a cool route, but being a little more on the taller side I found it into the lower grades, of .12's and no gimmy even with some height as the book mentions. I would not know what I would confirm it as, of course it does not matter much anyways but a fun variation.
