I climbed this over a three day weekend from LA with Bob Cox in May 1980. Leave LA late day 1, arrive early a.m. day 2, and pretty much start climbing right there, top out day three and drive home. Whew! Good thing we were young. I was a sophomore in college at the time and had to read Sinclair Lewis' Babbit for a report, so I tied a piece of elastic around the spine and read at belays. Multitasking gone mad.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
