Comments: Greg, your dates are more than likely correct. 2003 seems a little late.
Chris, there probably is a red dot there. Some dude went around putting red dots on problems all over the hills and claimed FA's of established problems.

Comments: I'm pretty sure I got the FA of this. I asked around and no one(Vern Phinney, Ronagon, et al.) seemed to know about it at the time, summer of 2003 I think. Greg did it that fall, so, whatever year that is. He'll remember.........
Oh, and I called it "Bears see things pretty much the way they are"
