It looks strange to see a guy climbing with a car / road in the background but it makes it a neat shot.

If I could only go back. climbing seemed so unencumbered. (Ok, I'd still want all of our modern gear).

Don't forget,, big hair cancelled out all mysterious powers of Spandex, although valley girls in spandex were always suckered in by my Rubik's Cube skills. today's woman is much smarter. Thats the unencumbered I'm talking about.

Anyway I'm on the south fin looking north ( the northbound lane is closer to us) and the Tyrolean guy is southbound from the north fin and he is being belayed from the south fin.

My guess it is about 35 feet. We just climbed both fins and pulled the lines across!
