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.

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

MisterE -
Why were the two bolt anchors replaced with a single bolt anchor? Also, some other bolts seemed new and none were camouflaged. Any info on this?

I was there yesterday, Jan 31, and there was just one bolt at the top. I would suggest using another routes anchors and adding a directional to top rope this route.
