I climbed this years ago around 1992 with Al Diamond leading it. I remember falling halfway up and because of the overhanging blocky roofs I was barely able to get back onto the wall. I had to force myself to swing, and with an outstretched leg was able to push off the wall to gain access to a hand hold. Perhaps not an experienced 5.9 climber at the time, but boy what fun it was!
