According to his fine autobiagrophy, Revalations, a young Jerry Moffat nearly met his demise on this route when he failed to properly anchor himself to the tree at the top of the cliff. One of his followers fell and pulled him from the ledge. Luckily they were both caught by one of the ancient pitons placed on the FA, after a fall of 50 feet!
