Average Rating = 3.67/5 First Attempt to lead Darth Aider

More classic trad garb. After resting on outter edge of my right shoe in the scar by my elbow, took a winger onto the piece below my feet. Later was successfully lead by Eric Forney (who was belaying me around the corner in a hanging belwy).

Average Rating = 4.00/5 Darth Aider Successfully TRed but couldn't lead

Early 80's. Great TR problem but a very tough lead. Taking off your hands to try to place cams is very tough.

Starlight Theater

Average Rating = 3.67/5 Starlight Theater

Put up a route for Alison Osius to climb for a Girl Scout Jamboree. Didn't need to protect the route from kids (or adults) from getting on because the starting moves to get to the first hold are at least solid 5.9 using only the existing brick. I believe Alison rated the overall route 5.10

FFA (but still a butt shot)

Average Rating = 3.25/5 FFA (but still a butt shot)

Not a great pic but it was the first ascent. Piece under the roof pulled when I cleared the roof. I was looking at a ground fall doing the smear move that comes next. The flake above the roof is hollow so a cam probably will come out. Named it Kansas City but none of the locals knew so it didn't get in the guide book like that. Early 80's.

Classic Trad outfit

Average Rating = 3.78/5 Classic Trad outfit

Kloberdanz Notice the shorts, socks and RR's. Got on first try using the Brashear's method but my knee popped because my heel was twisted in the pocket. This was the height of my trad career! No rack because we were just doing the crux then dropping off!
