Notice the flake on the wall - no longer there.

I was belaying him, after leading the first pitch. It would have been around 1965 or so. He didn't notice the flake and didn't use it. I followed without the flake too.

I don't think it's too nice to call Robbins a flake.

I assume there are no guesses because it is so obvious. So I won't give a hint.

MDP?

How about this one? (I don't know the answer; it's on the Mohonk Preserve website)

My guess for the picture posted by Seth: Interstice, first pitch.

No, I think it is Birdie Party. Interstice goes over the little roof on the right of the picture, but further right then is visible here.
