Thankfully he's still defending, I just climbed with him this week. There's only one rickd though so I guess it's hard for him to do all the work. Sep 5, 2011
Grumpy old man warning: Ancient history I suppose, but I’m bummed this was bolted over. What was once an exhilarating and thought-provoking lead has turned into yet another “fun” clip-up. Except for maybe EFR, has anyone even climbed all the 5.10 clip-ups along the highway, and if so, does this route stand out? Here, decades later, I can still visualize looking down the rope at the line of protruding RP wires and chalked quarter-inch edges, marveling at how much intensity was packed into this little climb. Sad, IMO. So, whatever happened to rickd, that defender of the faith? Sep 4, 2011
I was probably in the 4th or 5th ascent with Paul Davidson and it was a really hard scary route. Lead it before the retro bolting and scared the crap out of myself as well. Did it yesterday and really had fun clipping all those bolts. Pretty sure RR gave the OK to retro bolt it as those two climbed together and still do. I agree with Rickd that we should not forget the past. I enjoyed thinking about how bold the lead was before the bolts and hope that everyone that does it appreciates what Ray did on the FA so many years ago. Apr 2, 2008
