Never met Craig , but climbed with others who knew him. They also helped to contribute to his guide , which I feel is very well done. I know and belayed the first ascent on masochistic manicurist. Was not dogged. Believe that I was second. Three words helped me on my 20 th try. Feet Feet Feet. Climbed on this in pretty intense sleet. It was so edgy you couldn't lose your edge. Taped my tips one time only to cut the tape. Not the first ascent , but gave it the name. Also did Hard up for hammers and named. We Bosch drilled 1 TR bolt ,only to find no hammer with us, but a couple of rocks and nuts later proved the route easier than the bolt placement. Totally agree with the boulder field drawing. It's proportional. Enjoyed many climbs there in the late eighties,early nineties. Also spent a lot of time at La Cresta ,which I believe can be seen far in the distant from there. Wish I heard more about theses areas. Tim. Nov 1, 2016
