Jeep Gaskin on first free ascent of the Womb, 1936, during the Depression and way, way, way before Bobby Rotert, Tom McMillan and Diff Richie did their free ascent@SEMICOLON@ Crazy Joe Myers belaying. Notice Joe is barefooted because his EBs hurt so badly. Jeep's wearing EBs, the Cruel Shoes. I'd like to replace this photo on this website with a cleaned up version Ken Cangi so graciously provided.

Sweet photo. Vintage climbing gold, although I'm almost certain he climbed it in 1836. Jul 21, 2014
The climb, Aerospace Cadet, on the Sun Wall

was named for Joe Myers shown belaying in the Womb photo. He had gone off to join the Air Force so couldn't be there on the first ascent of that climb. May 24, 2014
