"Bragg would be taller ..." The fellow standing next to Mike Freedman is taller than he is. I think Mike is notably taller than I somewhere over 5'.11". So I do not think we can count him out based on height by any means. But if that imposter is someone else in painters pants, who is it?http://www.supertopo.com/climbers-forum/1441117/John-Bragg
The way I remember it was as follows: I was easily able do Low X without the need for tape and asked Brag and Rominson if they wanted to try it. They weren't interested. It was soon after that that Robinson invited me to Skytop and we did Jeckel and Hide, Burning Bush, and Mellow Yellow. On Burning Bush Robinson took two wires nuts and threaded them through each other so he could place the critical nut out of the crux. I thought that was cheating and was not sure what to think about it.
Muson was there, ask him.
One day I told Bill Ravitch I was going to solo Low Exposure. He said "I'll watch". It was after he said that that I changed my mind about that idea.
The Mohonk Mountain House and the Mohonk Preserve have done a great job protecting the environment thus far, but ... it's all down hill from here http://youtu.be/9AU8fMo8v4k.
