Many folks have climbed up to Teacher's Lounge Ledge, on the Tower's North End, (via Patent Pending, New Wave or Broken Tree). Far fewer climbers have pursued the routes (Patent Pending, Assembly Line, Surfer Girl, Maid in the Shade) going up from there. No one had ever taken that thin corner crack, directly right of Assembly Line. One August day Bekah I nailed the corner. It was her 1st Aid Climb. It was NOT my first, nor last time at corrupting youth.
