This photo certainly brought back memories; P3 was my first Gunks .10 lead. I think it was rated .10- in the early 90's. Crux was relatively short with good gear just before the committing roof. At the top, I was feeling rather good about myself until my second, a very seasoned and hardcore traddie, upon arriving at the top belay, pointed out to me that I had neglected to protect the second through the angling roof moves! I was so thrilled to fire the roof that I practically sprinted to the top belay with no thought whatsoever how Ajax would feel making the crux moves while staring at possibly a big swing (into space?) if he were to blow it. Oopsie! I will forever remember that lesson :)
