Comments: Why after nearly 35 years did Henry Barber come and chop the bolts on this route???

One night while hanging out at Paul & Loretta's house Henry, overheard Mike Todd and Mark Smedley talking about a new route they had been working on Super Pin. The next day Henry went on too steal the route from them. America is a free country and none of us owns the rock. Henry was a notorious route thief and he pissed off local climbers almost everywhere he went due to actions such as his on the FA of this rou... more >>

Comments: The last moves on this route are quite reachy for someone under 5'-6" tall.

Comments: Kertzman, get off your lazy ass and go fix this route or get the BHCC to do it. The route is very fun but the bolts leave a little too be desired. The bolt count could be reduced by one if the first two werwe rearranged. There is no real need for another bolt up high... after this is still the Needle last time I checked.

Comments: In light of the fact that this is the best easy route here at Raspberry Rocks, I would have to give it classic must do status. Not too mention the unique nature of the second pitch. If you climb it the way the Dakota Kid claims it was originally climbed then, doing so in one pitch will not seem so bad. You might want to take a #4 & #5 camalots for the first 30'.

Comments: Whiteline to the left and Hotline to the right. Yet another variation called Perlon. If Tricouni Nail is 5.8 then this route is only 5.7.

Comments: Just how can the Monkey Beast properly deal with the sausage factor in light of not first assuming the prison style stance?

Comments: I recently heard J.D. sent "Little Monster" first try. The rumor is he hired a couple of drunks from day labor to enhance (chip) all of the holds, added five bolts and the route now goes at a stout V0-... What a tragedy! Not much different than his piping in on this thread and bringing it down to his level. The real question is who should really do some serious soul searching about their climbing motives?

Comments: The first crux is reachy for me (i'm 5'6") and might be a one move 5.11-.

Comments: The anchors (rusty old bolts) at the top of the first pitch are scary.
