Right On!

How thick was the first pitch? Ah...the photo just loaded. Climbed the first 2 pitches back in 1978. Our last rap was off of a small chockstone frozen into a flaring crack...somehow it held.

Thanks for posting

First tooth. My understanding is that, that is fat.

Pictures man, pictures!

I watched Stan Mish and Bill Keyes (sp?) climb it into the dark. I met them at the road with hot clam chowder. They were very psyched to be down and ready to party. Cool route!

anyone been on this recently? some poseurs at the Vic said they were going to get on it a few weeks back. I'm skeptical up the receptacle.

Great shots Everyone...

Here are a couple from 99 from my Cannon Powershot 2MP, how the quality has changed...

Pitch 2


Getting close to the end of the long 3rd pitch.
