Location: ID : City of Rocks : Breadloaves : Decadent Wall : Adolescent Homo (5.7)

Comments: This super-obvious, super-popular route was surely climbed decades before Jay G. named it "Adolescent Homo". It never has been "Adolescent Homosexual" (except here on MP). I added the "sapien" part in the guidebook to quiet the critics while retaining some of the punky quality. Personally, I'd love to hear the original name - if they bothered to give it one.

Comments: I backed off this cool little crack back in the diem (when we were still speaking Latin). Good job pushing thru lads! Yes to a finish up the head-wall!

Comments: "Bad Crack" isn't really so bad - if you're into wide cracks. The 5.10 rating is outdated info. I led it last year and thought 5.8 or 9, and I suck at wide cracks. It's also pretty hard to avoid clipping at least one bolt on "Muffin Top", so it feels a bit contrived. Two-and-a-half stars? Not.

Comments: I've never heard of this chimney being called "Incisor".

Comments: There used to be a fixed pin near the start of this fun route. I found the gear alternatives less-than-comforting. I'd love to see a bolt or two added at the bottom!

Comments: We did a fun top-rope directly below the anchors of the first pitch. "Tail Feather" 10a** Avoid the crack and bush up top via slab moves to the right.

Comments: I'm surprised the diagram shows draws being clipped in to the same chain link as the threaded rope. That's fine if there are rings, but running the rope and a draw thru the same chain link is like an elephant humping a chipmunk.

While the overall sequence is fine, it's a bit slow, and certainly not the only safe option when threading.

Comments: Interesting point about being easier than "Red Rib". For sure. Thanks to Kevin Pogue for all those bolts. Clipping about half of them make it feel more "old school", if you're in to that sort of thing.

Comments: Awesome route! It's super-blank looking, but has just enough classic City edges to make it go without any stopper sections.

Comments: Nice job Cleaning up that loose flake, Adam.
We also removed a belayer-killing block on from p-1 of the direct last year.

Hey admin - Why is this route still rated .11A?

Comments: A fun route that would be better with a bolted direct start so you don't have to grovel up the chimney.

Comments: R - X whatever. This route is rarely led because of the sparse (hand drilled on lead) bolting. Jay G. felt fine about adding 10 bolts to "Mystery Achievement", but wants to leave "New Toy" as is. Go figure.
