Pre-Fire days, so 1982 or 1981. Shoes were EBs with added leather on sides as the canvas didn't hold up when doing a lot of crack climbing. Harness was probably Whillian's if I remember correctly.

A bit of glossed over Eldo history? What were the "Pre-Fire days"?

FIREs (fee-ray) were the first sticky rubber shoe. They revolutionized free climbing in the '80s....
