This was maybe the second ascent of the wall after the original Harding ascent. It was featured in an article in Climbing Magazine by Pete Takeda. The article was part first ascent account and part profile on Eric Kohl and the numerous scary Yosemite big wall first ascents he has established. Greg Epperson rappelled in from above to shoot the climb. The photos were stunning and one even showed up on the Patagonia Catalog cover. Read the trip report on the solo second ascent by Nick.
