Wow. Must of had that route dialed or maybe he dropped his shoes.

I don't think Skip had to have a route dialed to lead it barefooted as that is what he did all the time. Check out him edging on razor blade holds in Eldo.

What's amazing is that he and bob horan actually thought it would help them climb harder without shoes. And it obviously did to some degree. Do you think it still applies to today's shoe technology (i.e. c4 rubber?).

Wow, this really makes me feel better about wanting to climb barefoot! Two new idols in my book!

BAREFOOT CHALKLESS SOLOING IS CLIMBING, EVERYTHING ELSE IS A COMPROMISE. that was obviously plagiarized, im a useless compromised climber if there ever was one. Skip and Bob are Gods. like Greek mythology status. jesus may have walked on water but Skip led Wendego barefoot. 'nuff said! (please note that of the two people referenced in the previous sentance, only one is capitalized purposely)
