Slip of Fools back in 1985. Climbed it with A chap...

Description 

I'm not sure if this has been hit by rockfall. it was very popular for a while, nice climbing at a moderate grade. I took a 70 footer at Albany Slabs on the morning of this f/a


Location 

Near Vendetta. Start in a seam to an overlap. P2 up a nice slab past 2 bolts to a belay under an overlap. P3 Up past fixed ? pins for about 90'. P4 up over a bulge to join Lakeview.


Protection

There is/was/maybe a thread on this on NE Climbs, actually on falling aspirations, but I think that it was affected and the affected pro was replaced.
