Scanned photo of Ted on the last pitch before the corner exit. All the rock from Ted to the rope is gone and the rock right of the rope is gone. Featureless steep friction face now. I got a good look at it. The bottom of this used to be a sidewalk. Now it is a thick sloping forest that grows beneath it. The beginning of the corner where the rope is I dropped a rock on my leg above the ankle on the lead and got a deep cut. I weakly climbed up on a top rope and so the route was named by my friends. Descent hike I was very slow and used a stick for a third leg. Then E.R. for the evening and it wasn't a serious injury. Nothing to stitch just a oval hole to heal closed. I secured my status, renown locally as Epic Brad. It was all just in fun. I haven't had a real epic yet.
