When we did this climb in 1966, we speculated that it wasn't going to be too long before it was climbed entirely free. The big changes came with the advent of better shoes and use of passive hardware (nuts) instead of pitons for protection. We were trying a "as free as we can" ascent at the time. Apr 18, 2013
