Ah well, at least I boulder pretty well.

So I guess I am never getting up the big stone. Kevin Thaw asked me to do the Nose free with him in the early 90s so that I could do the thin crack pitches (great roof) but my body quit working about then and it took me almost 10 years to figure out what was wrong and get back in shape. But at 59 I am not gonna free climb the nose now. So I guess I am never gonna be a REAL climber!

and would that be free-climbing it?
If you free climb El Cap...you are an uberclimber, and that is way beyond real. The E. Buttress doesn't count though...even a aid climbing wanker like me can free that one.
Not to piss on the EB though! It's a fine route, a nice little adventure...and only 5.10b.
