Reverence to Mr. Van Horn can be seen at the base ...
This route is just left of Partners in Crime, on the Freeform Wall in Sand Gulch. It is just right of a shallow dihedral/crack.
The route is identified by six glue-in bolts, with washers behind the hangers. The hangers, Kong-Bonati, have "Italy" stamped on the face. A seventh bolt was apparently added later, at the bottom, by an unknown party, and has a home-made hanger. The anchors are 1/2x4 sleeve bolts with metolius hangers and quicklinks/chain.
History - The FA party felt the line was a bit squeezed by standards of the day, so they called it "No Vacancy." Glue-ins are messy, so a rag was used to keep things clean. A female climber came by, most curious about the route construction, and especially the old pair of underwear used to tidy things up, and dubbed the new route, "Tighty Whities."
7 bolts to the anchor - six original, on standard 3/8" hangers; one added later by unknown party, on a home-made hanger.
