I wept because I had no shoes, until I met a man who had no feet. So I took his shoes.
You are funny :)
Seriously, our sneakers had very poor grip on these semi-wet slabs (after many days of thunderstorms) so we chose to go barefeet. Fortunately (or unfortunately if you are looking for good holds) this rock is pretty slick and does not have many crystals sticking out of it.
Tried to climb south slopes when I was 8. Got stuck a little way up.
