The first 5.12 I ever put and probably the first 12 I ever climbed. Also the first route I ever rap bolted. After a long discussion with Steve Grossman while doing yard work at Paul Davidson's parents house. Steve almost convinced me to do it ground up even though I had top-roped it. Didn't really think it was 12 even though others thought so. I repeated it 5 or six years ago and it turns out to be a bouldery 12-. Aug 29, 2017

I was glad you put it up, and glad to send it. 2 bolts plus gear is what I remember. Aug 29, 2017
