Comments: Thought Control and Auspice have had their hardware (bolts and anchors) upgraded, thanks to the Anchor Replacement Initiative. Also, many thanks to the Flatirons Climbing Council, OSMP, and the Access Fund for making the work possible.

Volunteers: Matt Samet, Kevin Riley - November 2009.

Comments: As a bit of history, BITD there used to be a small, black, plastic gorilla in the crack on the first pitch. After you climbed up the handcrack and grabbed the chicken head there was the gorilla staring directly at you with bared teeth!

Comments: John,

actually, 'foonting' was named after the character from the Robert Crumb/Mr. Natural comics, Flakey Foont.

Comments: When this route was put up in the 60's there were no bolts on the climb, but they did have pitons. When I did it in the mid-70's we weren't using pins so it was all natural pro. The problem was that there wasn't any natural pro so it was undoubtedly X-rated. Times change.
