Ophir Broke II 5.12d, Telluride, first free ascent and first female ascent of the grade, with John Long.

Though I did the FFA of this route, the guidebook to the Ophir Wall credits John with the FFA, probably because in 1980 I was an unknown climber, just a protégé of Largo.

Pea Brain 5.12d, Independence Pass, Colorado, first free ascent and first female ascent of the grade, with John Long.

Stairway to Heaven III 5.12, Tahquitz Rock, California, first free ascent, with Long and Tim Powell.

The Nose, El Capitan, ascent, with Mari Gingery

The Shield, El Capitan, ascent, with Mari Gingery

We learned to use Copperheads, hooks, Bashies, knife-blades, RURPs, and all that stuff. We learned a lot about aid climbing on those routes.
