Zabrok makes the First Ascent of Resplendence in 1982

We walked up to the base of Old Baldy one pristine spring morning in 1982, and I spied this line begging to be climbed.

It was actually John Kaandorp's turn to lead, but he balked at it, fearing the pro to be a bit thin.

"I'll have a go," I said. Fortunately it took a few small wires, and I managed to make it.

I climbed this route the way I feel a route should be climbed - from the ground up, on-sight, clean, and with no falls or rests on the rope.

A classic.
