This climb is called Finnigan's Ladder. I did it with Jessie Stover back in 1993. I think it's a dumb name, but Jessie really wanted it to be called that. It's a song by Firehose or something.
I also talked to Rob Kelman shortly after the first ascent. He claimed that he and another guy had done it without any bolts. I find that hard to believe, but whatever.
Justin- why do they call you Squatting Bear?

|Bob took me to Blue Eyes in '92, and we checked this out. Finally figured out the opening moves and got on, but only after about a gazillion tries and I was gassed. Still, I looked it over and wouldn't have continued without drilling. Ironically, was going to name it "The Raisen's Edge", obviously another musical entendre from the era.|
