Long story short- the Club brand of rolling papers had a statement in tiny squinty print about their quality and it was signed by Le Proffesore, S. D. Modiano. Back then (early 80s) papers were one of our ten essentials.

Several large loose blocks on this one, biggest of which requires you to layback on a double microwave size block no wobbles or anything but it seemed sketch, the rest can be avoided.
Personally I loved this climb my partner wasn't a fan of the rock quality and choss. not sure this was correct but traversing the smaller roof up top exiting top right was super fun.
