I've had a good read here. I'm all bluebirded out.

I'd like to say I have the most cheapest deal on RRs from Larry Horton at North Face-Berkeley in early 1970. He had a pair in my size that had the toe rand separated from the leather on one of them, but it was good to climb in, just couldn't be sold full price. So he gave the pair to the Rev to give to me down at Apathy House in Pacific Grove.

Thank you for the God Boots, Larry!

I ended up using the 'oddball' brown leather RDs from Galibier. I thought the rubber better than the popular PAs.

The first climb I got to do with them was in the Pinnacles. The Higher Spire was next, my first 5.8 climb. And descent after )a8=$ dark!

Still need to take a pic of the pair that I have with smooth soles.


My soles are also worn flat!
