Fall Wall - Vedauwoo, Wyo

Fall Wall at Veedauwoo, Wyo in 1977.
Friction slabs with bolts- difficulty 5.5 to 5.6 and we climbed in our big clunky stiff leather boots.
I actually took a 30 to 40 foot fall here and still have chipped bone in my left elbow.
The first pair of rock shoes I ever saw were on Todd Skinner as he soloed past us on these slabs on his way up to some 5.10+ project.
