Not My Cross To Bear
Alex Colville who runs Casa de Madera gift shop and climbing store in Del Norte told me he took one of the Lowe boys (George?) out to climb this one day. When he got to the first bolt he said he'd never been so intimidated on a climb in his entire climbing career. The first time I did it I climbed within a few inches of clipping then climbed down and my second introduced me to "stick clipping". It seemed wrong to do it at the time, but I did it and was glad to have the protection.
