Pete's Reticent Wall Topo That He Gave To Tomaz Humar

This is page 16.
Here's a copy of the actual topo that I gave Tomaz Humar when he couldn't find one.
You know it's "legit" for two reasons - firstly, you can see that the word "rivit" is misspelled by Gerberding, like he always does, and secondly you can see that the gear list includes a ghetto blaster, 12 Olde English, and one Big Wall Crab.
Please click here to read Tomaz Humar's interview after soloing Reticent Wall where he talks about how difficult he found the climbing to be, and where he tells how we helped him when nobody else would:
"Another problem I encountered was with the local climbers: no one wanted to help me in any way whatsoever, perhaps because I was there for the first time and nevertheless wanted to climb the route solo. They didn't give me any useful information about the route, perhaps because they didn't think I would succeed.
I'm proud of the fact that I'm the first European to repeat this route [he means first European to solo this route - Ed.] and I must thank the Canadians who, having climbed the route prior to me, were the only ones who gave me precise info about the route."
