Beautiful photos! And what's that route to the left on the green slickenside face?

Haven't figured out how to post photos direct so put them on my Facebook page instead. Look closely and you can see Toni Barker paying out line and Chuck tying off a chockstone (his only pro) before moving up to a better (but not the top) belay position. I'm told by people whose memories are better than my own that the climb was first made in 1969. And my own memory reminds me that John Fischer and Karl Dreisbach made the second ascent on the following weekend. I'll look for a movie clip of them.
