Peter Hayes leading "Adrenaline Crack" (R/X), 1981.  
There is really no pro from here 15 feet to the anchors, and a few feet below the photo is a nest of RP's...not real big...so the threat of hitting the ground is quite real. Though it is "only" a greasy, rounded 5.10 from here up, those tiny nuts way down there do not provide one with much confidence. On this day, it was hot, and after trying to get gear in for 5 minutes, Peter just sacked up and ran it to those slings. Not a recommended lead. Maybe the modern gadgets would work here, but the rack of nuts...and one friend...were not going in to that groove thingy. Mar 30, 2015
