He's not bleeding. No lichen-encrusted shirt. No tears. Are sure this thing gets a bomb Lee? :)

That certainly is the finish to 'Lone Ranger'. In hindsight to history's sake, this section was free soloed by Frank Peter's and I in 1980 after accessing it from the dirt ramp on the Summit cliff's east side below it.
Like, crazy man. Bomb's away. Frank slipped and I grabbed his arm before he was the bomb descending fast down the cliff. To each his own taste at climbing stuff, it's sort of like listening to and or performing music.
This climb won't be our bomb's away. It's one of my favorite memories, including hearing or feeling Frank's glee in still being alive. Thanks for the photo. This is the first time I've listed this story.

Thanks for sharing your story, Bradley. You did good that day. To me, such stories are timeless and speak of the very significant experiences that climbing partners can share and remember for a life time. Great stuff.
