On the first on-sight lead of Death Crack, Dale Bard liebacked a short section. After placing a #7 or #8 hex at the base of the main difficulties, he jammed up the crack and placed another hex or two. When he got just above where Werner is in the photo, Dale reached up to that edge of the flake and started liebacking for a move or two and then pulled right back into the crack. What was remarkable was that he looked so casual while grabbing a lieback hold, calmly putting his foot out on the face above his head, doing a move or so and pulling up into the off-width. He made it look like it was the natural way to do it. This was probably the third lead of the climb. It was about 7 days after the first ascent.

I'm trying to recall a Animal Nickname story about a Spanish CaveDweller on acid, on all fours, having an epic at the base of Death Crack. Animal guy simply stands up, grabs a few cams and jams--"only large paws"--to the swing through. It'd be nice to have actual confirmation of any such validity.

I tried it once with the Leader of the Blue Balls Conga Line who, despite claims of having mastered handjams with her then North Face-sponsored love associate, couldn't get a single jam in. Might have had something to do with the full sleeve of tape. Anyhow, it was a sad display on both our parts.

Where's Vern to recount the FA?
