Not so much an event just a little history.
Back in about 1985 Rob Mulligan and I stumbled onto the Shark Fin on a trip back from Tuolumne Meadows. We had decided to check out the Alabama Hills and found this formation with no bolts on it and decided to give it a shot. With only 5 bolts between us we used 3 to get to the top and the last 2 on top for rapping. We never reported our accent since no one at that time was doing much here. I was just there on 5-16-10 and realized what we had climbed and all the new bolts on it. Ours are long gone and what is there is far better I'm sure but it was fun when we did it. Our original name for the route was Alabama Getaway.
