on the first ascent--I was freeing an old rope had gotten stuck on the Canoe probably sometime in the early 80's. Back in 1984, the wind had strung that same rope across the Shield, where it annoyingly flapped and whipped at me when I was soloing that route, so I reached out and cut it in half. Here, many years later, I was able to finish the clean up job...

Hey John,

How about some more photos from the first ascent? Those would be great to see, especially the pitch above the Canoe which has become Pretty Darn Hard now that the beak placements are getting beaten out.

Would also love to see a photo of The Flight!

John's partial removal of the offending rope one year, then return years later to finish the job, would surely earn the above and beyond award at the FaceLift. It's not everyone who does a new route on El Cap, just to clean up some tattered old rope.
