Now THAT takes me back ! Is the Fruitstand even IN any current guidebook ? It's in my old Summit Hut guide.

Its in Kerry's Backcountry guide. It looked like no one had been there in ten years, and even though the book says, "bolts recently updated," everything looked 40 years old. The cliff could stand some modernization, but the Forest Service would probably string you up if they heard a drill. (Surprisingly good rock for Sabino Canyon)

I got the most awful rope drag when I led that route 32(?) years ago. Learned something about the value of proper sling length.

Also, congratulations to Sheryl for getting up this. Hopefully I won't get in trouble for saying this, but Sheryl is missing most of her right hand due to an accident.

no, you wont get into trouble for mentioning the obvious, thanks, Steve, for leading it. Fun fun route, even got to hide-a-way into the crack to retrieve gear.

Sheryl - did you get that piece of gear out of the crack?! We couldn't get it when we were there. Climb on!
