Me on "China" 1981. Sorry for the quality, but it was ruined either by or in the mail from a writer of a book on late seventies early eighties climbing in Colorado. The route is considered one of the first 5.12s on the western slope.
Chuck during the first ascent of the other big roof 5.12 "Welcome to China." I'll post more latter. I suppose someone ought to do a separate route description.
Allen, my quick stab at making it better.

I remember belaying John Rosholt (the Gambler) many times on this, for hours. Never knew how someone could hang upside down for so long.

I even belayed Bryan Becker on it one afternoon. At the time I didn't think that this would ever go!

I never knew Chuck, but he must have been a stud!

Scott, photoshop is beyond anything I can do. I'd be better off discussing the conflicts between Werner Heisenberg and Grete Hermann. Somewhere I have a real good slide of Charles actually at the lip the day before he nailed the route. It will emerge at some point.
