[Hide Comment] DaveG - Thanks for the "honor". I guess I have a better eye than ability, eh? It appears that this route was always beyond my limit. Was any of my gear useful? What did I leave up there? Since loosing that beautiful shirt (the source of my climbing power), I’ve taken up offshore yacht racing and handguns. Sep 20, 2007

[Hide Comment] First completed route on the wall. Originally equipped by a man known only as Hawaiian Bill. Dave did the retro fit and FA in either late 1995 or early 1996. Seth Dyer did a quick second ascent, and I followed with the third ascent spring 1996. Feb 15, 2018
