Barnburner Crack before the bolts. This photo is from September of 1988. The belayer is non other than Jim Blakely. As much as I'd like to say I on-sighted this thing, I can't, I'm sure that I had top roped it at least a hundred times. To walk up to this crack and on- sight it would be really cool. I lost that chance over two decades ago. At the time I figured this was the 4th or 5th lead of the climb. Good thing I wasn't wearing lycra. Bob Bickford December 2008
