Some people credit the first ascent PARTY or TEAM....doesn't matter who in PARTY or TEAM climbed the damn climb......others people just go with the person or persons who did the climbing AND did the route without hanging or resting or pulling........maybe the first ascent should only be the person who LEAD the climb?... or drilled the bolts?....What???...I personally go with whoever CLIMBED the route (any, aid, hangs, whatever...)for short routes....and first ascent team or party for longer routes......(Team effort, mate...)... sticky business, aint' it?.......Good thing climbers are an honest bunch ; never lie, fabricate, forget, or tell half-truths.......

classic thread

LOL'd when i read Fish's

"Originally we used to make the (sheep bugger) noise just to piss off Mooney. For some reason we thought he looked like that goat in a Rowell book that was climbing a 5.9 crack."

Sketchy got the Bloodline info right. We all climbed it at some point, but I don't recall anyone leading it without a fall until I heard about E. I actually drilled at least one bolt (below the one finger hole). I was hanging from a hook on a hold that no longer exists because someone (who shall remain nameless) pulled out on it instead of down ;-) I worked on one of the other bolts as well, but don't remember how much because I am getting old and forgetfull least they were put in from the ground up.
