Bill Price fired this route in 1982, just a short while after Rick Cashner fell on a failed attempt to free solo it. Cashner's blood was still at the base. <br />Onlookers applauded the ascent. <br />Bill said "it's no big deal, Yabo free soloed the first free ascent!" <br />Photo by Blitzo.

Clarification of above: Yabo soloed the first "Lead" of the route -- if you can call it that. Or maybe it would be better to say it was soloed before it was lead. It had been top-roped free many times previously (including by Yabo).
