OK, I started a thread on "digitizing summit registers" as the subject seems to deserve discussion separate from this thread. See:

"The rock is so polished that old EBs would literally make squeaking noises.:

So did the old Sportivas. That was always disconcerting to me.

The FA of “The Token,” a one-pitch thin slab on The Apron between Chiropodist’s Shop and Ephemeral Clog Dance, gives voice to the “take no prisoners” ethic Scott developed after the HOM.

did the token in '87 with the ex. felt like 12a to me. I thought it was a Bob Gaines route?

Karl, hope it was a clean break away from any joint, in which case you are good to go in no time.

Good news, Away from the joint

Bad news, Plate and 8 screws nailing it all together.

Cast is off and I'm leading 5.8 or so, low angle!

I'm fairly certain that Woodward and my pal the Late Chris Purnell did the FA of the complete route to the rim. Late 80s/early 90s.
