It's not really on the same boulder as Nipple Denial, it's on the next one, on the opposite side of X-files, or on the face left of Chopping Block.

If I am remembering correctly, this is the third route from the left of the four on this face. To the right of Third Degree and to the left of Moonshiner. At least, I think that's right.

Immediately to the left of Moonshiner. Crux is getting to the shuts. Very vertical and poor hands/feet

Very vertical? Gorilla Drilla is beyond vertical above the last bolt. In fact, your feet don't touch the wall when lowering for the 1st 15 feet, due to the steep upper portion. There was an interesting story by Nicki Dyal in Rock & Ice regarding the origin of the name and the FA. As the name implies some clandestine tactics were employed to avoid detection. And no more worn shuts, there is a new set of Mussy hooks.

One of the mussy hooks is missing its gate as of 12/1/13.

The anchors were replaced this morning per Bill L's specifications with Fixe single-ring hangers.
Also tightened two other bolts on the route.
