I led this pitch in 73; aluminum rivets along the little ramp left (not straight up), then a 1/4" bolt at the end. I got up the corner about 15 feet and the only place to put a pin was a little hole with a small bush root in it. I would beat the pin in and that root would act like a lubricant so I finally got pissed and wailed on it. Expando BY BY! My only fall of the climb. I remember that Hugh was belaying me (hip belay with carabiners) and had a jar of peanut butter between his knees and piece of bread and a knife in his hands. A nice armpit catch!
