I remember doing it in the late '70's. My first multi-pitch climb.

My nerves got to me on the second pitch while I was belaying my buddy Carl who was leading. He was out of sight of me when I called up to him and asked him if he was in a good place. He said" Well I can be" and slapped in some not so great protection while listening to his belayer dry heave below him. I felt much better after that little episode and called up to him, "climb on!" To which he hollered "Are you alright!?!"
"Yeah, I',m fine",
"OK, Climbing",
"Climb away"
and we finished the route.

From then on Carl referred to that climb as the one where I puked on his rope....Yup, great memories.
