I believe the route to be the work of Ralph Schmidt, otherwise known as the two-handed broadswordsman. May 16, 2002

I think FA was by Steve Sangdahl Apr 13, 2010
A fierce boulder problem all the way. Surprising in-cut holds for the hands but some tough smears for the feet. Aug 30, 2011

This climb is extremely technical, and the feet seem to be the crux. It's short but packs a punch. Aug 30, 2011
I think it was Ralph Schmitt, AKA The White Viking. (Steve?) The reason I think this, is that after Ralph did it, I established a cramped 5.10 route right of PGH just so I could name it “Into Thin Hair” (not listed). Jul 31, 2018
