Nostalgic, but that wasn’t that long ago, only 2005, which is only a few years... Oh...

It's good to see all those steep problems being done wearing slippers or mocs. Just like the hard problems which Fred Nicole opened. I wonder if the grades would have been higher back then, if they had the down toed shoes of today? I suppose being as strong as they were, it might not have made much difference but it's funny how nowadays you get people climbing way easier grades but in down toe shoes.

If anyone is thinking of a trip to Hueco (distant pipedream at the moment!) then I'd really recommend packing a rope as well as a pad - the trad routes there are absolutely outstanding, and seem to get very few ascents.
