Way to go! In the Spring of 1970 incessant monsoons forced us to concentrate are efforts on the newly discovered Generator Crack. The monsoons persisted and so did we- right side in, left side in, with rock shoes, then with running shoes and, finally, solo. The rains finally stopped and the first Valley 5.11 OW's went down.

5.10c....right? Ha, ha, HA!

In the spring of 1970 I was kicking on the womb door. Born June 20th 1970.

Generator crack kicked my ass when I tried it. Tried...

It only feels 5.10c if you are soloing. There is no move harder than 5.8
