Jailhouse Rock is the mother of invention to the sticky rubber kneepad. The early local developer's Tony Corliss stitched a rubber pad onto a pair of baseball pants in the early 1990's, and Tommy Herbert claims he was the first to glue sticky rubber onto a neoprene kneepad at the same time frame, which is what it commonplace today. Chris Knuth brought the neoprene pad to Rifle, where the device downgraded many established hard climbs in the mid 1990's. Jan 12, 2014
