1981. The Fat City Direct crux en route to the first continuous ascent of Requiem via the Fat City Direct variation. Fat City Direct climbs straight up to where I am in the photo. Requiem climbs a wild feet dangling hand crack over a bright orange roof just out of the photo to the right. The true Requiem crux, originally aided, first went free at 12 something, and then a hold broke (but maybe still free). The large right facing corner at the left of the photo is Gelsa, 5.4.

The "red thing" is the tails of a 2" tubular red webbing swami belt tied with a water knot, very common at that time. Home made legloops are 2" flat webbing. Aug 19, 2015
What is that wide red thing on the climber (I assume it is you)? Sep 24, 2011
