5 out of 5 stars First Ascent

When we originally did "Push Me Pull You"
way back in 1974, or 1973 Peter Jameson, Roland Smith, and I would try this route on the way in to the other climbs at east Animas and then again on the way out. It took us over a year and a countless number of falls before one of us finally pulled past the fist jam. The thing I remember most about it was that every climber that walked by and saw us trying it would just shake their heads and say, "Never gonna happen, you guys are nuts!"

After we did it, we figured it couldn't be harder than 5.9 cause none of us could climb anything harder than that and 5.10 was the absolute upper limit being done anywhere in the world back then.
