This was a good pitch, and this got to be the crux move. Not sure if you know that, but it was first climbed by Warren Harding way before he became famous

Yeah, MIsha, I remember reading that. Apparently, he didn't even remember doing it! Anyway, fun little climb.

No, I don't -- but I ran across a guy who flies gliders at the same club as me. We started talking and it turns out he was a climber too. (He's maybe 70 years old now.) I asked him about his climbs and he specifically mentioned climbing a bunch with Royal Robins and Warren Harding on Lambert Dome so I was wondering if maybe it was this guy I met.

That section ended up being easier than it looked. That 'squeeze' section actually made it easier to climb past the slick slab, as I shimmied up the gap then stemmed the flake and rougher granite beyond the slick. Fun pitch!

Yeah, slick but quite doable for the reasons specified. Perhaps the only redeeming quality of that climb.
