First gear was a hemp waistlength, cable laid rope (120 ft), a couple of tape runners, a Moac (still got that!) and Red Flash gym shoes. Graduated to a pair of EBs when I could lead S.
Damn, I was skinny in those days!
Generally prefer multi-pitch trad, never quite understood bouldering, mainly because I always climb at the same (modest) grade regardless of the situation. So 3 feet of exposure == 300 feet of exposure.
Most of my recent experience has been in N. Carolina (12 hour one-way drive) and I completely missed the bonanza in new routes when I used to live there (late 70s).
Now in Florida, for my sins.
