[Hide Comment] Next to old school problems, but this one seemed graded easier. Jan 5, 2014

[Hide Comment] If you want to update your entry, I did the FA of that thing, seems like about a million years ago (1984?). Tricky landing without pads.
It was named after Pat Nay, in reference his sun baked neck (or something just as silly) and an homage to Largo's big dyno, The Speed of Light, at the Relativity Boulders in Idyllwild. Jan 5, 2014

[Hide Comment] Nice, that bit of history is good to know. I guess I stayed faithful to the padless ascent, though the shoes I used are undoubtedly different. Speed of Light boulders are cool! Wonder how much development is still occurring around that general Idyllwild area. Jan 27, 2014
