E...it's a Chouinard Castrato (slogan: "The leader must not falsetto").
Soon after this photo I started climbing pretty regularly with Leona. She did a complete make-over on my accessories so I wouldn't embarrass her in front of her worldly climbing buddies from all over the country. New harness with gear loops... new shoes with velcro... no more oval biners... no more gear slings or full length runners.. no lycra.
The shoes are Resin Roses... what Frank and I used to boulder in.
Classic cross-body, hand/foot mechanics. I guess I was heeding the Bob Murray pointers !
