I just tripped over this post, so sorry for the *very* late reply!

Puss 'n Boots on Kitten Wall was done on 9/6/67. It was originally graded 17! (Because the first ascensionist didn't know any better!) These days it's regarded as a solid 19. It was probably the hardest climb at Arapiles in it's day!
