Comments: I climbed his route in 1975 (supposedly 1st American ascent. What was the move out of the 3rd overhang on P2? There seemed to be no handholds but there was a wooden wedge pounded into the crack leading up with a drilled hole and threaded with half inch webbing. Are the old railroad spikes still place that were used for the rappel anchors?
Great pictures.

Comments: The first accent was lead by Howard Chuntz. Richard Coplin actually found the route and gave it to me as the present he'd promised me. The year was 1979.
