This is a great route. In your face from the first move, and doesn't let up for quite a while.
Note the mid 60's Rambler Cross Country wagon in this photo posted by Olaf Mitchell for another thread:
After reading all the input on the current shops. It stirred up a few memories of shops from the past. This is still my all time favorite climbing store. It's where I bought all my first gear. You never knew who you were going to run into. It was a wonderful hub for the Boulder climbing scene.Many of my good friends and climbing partners including Dan Hare worked there for many years.
During this period Gary Neptune's boot repair was just a hole in the wall across town.Gary would personally resole and repair our mountain boots and eb's. He carried a very limited inventory of gear back then.
