So who's Ligamentor? And how did he get his name in the climb?

lots of history here, Rosebrough is Ligamentor
the routes line as pictured has been an inaccuracy since my scrawl in big al's notebook at the local stop got misprinted into his first guide, as pictured, the actual route deviates where the drawn line take the extreme turn right

the actual route ascent straight up in the scope; hold and great gear placement appear out of nowhere on this one, as i recall, you get a #3 friend just as the crack squeezes out, then a key dished out hold unseen from the ground come into range

mark spend several years on crutches recover from knee injuries, following this day was a rare occasion for him, we were impressed with his focus

Craig was the leader that day, the route was unlikely, and i predicted Craigs ground fall, as i belayed through the extended period of the pitches lead

never imagining a finish within his ability was going to be found at the top of that scoop

this route just doesn't look possible from the ground
