Had to slam and wiggle just to get my fat pinky tip into the crack near the beginning. That was very entertaining! ... and the rest of the climb (albeit: not much) was sweet locks!

I know who did the first ascent of this route. It was me and Barry Bolin, sometime in the mid 70s, with one point of aid (first move). I'll check my records.
