Wasn't Take Five soloed by Robin Miller for the first ascent?

Well, it's certainly supposed to under the Ewbank grading system.

Yes, but if it was soloed on the FA then the pro was academic.

Robin Miller graded Take Five with the leader in mind. From memory, back in the days before aliens etc, there was a v. poorly protected move about 15/16 at 6-7metres. Above that move there was a shallow horizontal with a pebble and you could get a dodgy #2 hex behind the pebble, then a move or two of 17/18 then some good gear. When I last led that pitch (in the late 80s) the pebble had gone and I think there was a good small cam placement - there was a cam placement anyhow.

Yeah the guide book comment makes sense pre-friend/cams. And sure some of the cams are not 'ideal', but I thought they were ok (but sure I wasn't going to back-jump the route!)

I remember stacking a couple of nuts in a pocket down low somewhere - thought it was pretty cool, even if maybe not the most bomber.

I just don't like the idea that the guide puts people of doing a route when they'd otherwise enjoy it.
