Route was first TR'd by one of the Gleason brothers back in late '60s or so. (Phil I think.)
First lead was by Paul Davidson and Kim Spence.
Probably in 1978, late one evening after classes.
We called it Red Asphalt for the ankle biter potential off the one arm cranks and the red color of the slab.
At the time, I thought it might be a 12a. Certainly the hardest crank moves around Flag at that point in time.
But it's all of what, 20 ft ?
