Just wanted to post up a couple exciting Equinox-related links.
Current thread on SuperTopo about the Equinox FA
I love this part:
“Largo first showed me that crack. He said” Ho man, you gotta see this thing”. We thought he was nuts but Richard Harrison knew about it too. He gave me the look and said ” yep” and off we went.
Long also brought this young girl with us out there. She just started climbing and could only do 5.10c on a toprope. Anyway when we finally got there my jaw dropped.
We set up a top rope and Harrison asked the girl if she thought she could do this thing. She said, “Oh yeah, no problem”. She went first and started laybacking the initial fingercrack section and actually made past the first crux! Our eyes popped out. She actually laybacked the slightly offset finger crack start. Her name was Lynn.
Anyway, I remember we all tried it and I top roped it that day”
Also, check out this video of Kevin Jorgeson sending it… his first week of trad climbing… (how ridiculous):
