Last time I saw Rich,he had led Heather. That one is 12b,and listed as well protected,he seemed pretty psyched about it. I don't think anyone would argue that either Rich or John don't have many fine,bold ascents to their credit,I know I wouldn't.I also doubt very much Rich walked up and sent any of Strand's bolder climbs. You have the comprehension problem dood,they are not topropes.
