This route is called Pissing on his Grave, apparently put up a year after Garcia died.

FA: Pete Verchick & can't recall … likely Kevin C. or Eric D., maybe BobNob, as all these routes were done ground up, which takes two to tango.
c. 8/9/95, thus the name of this route and its more appreciated friend to the left. Both established, if memory serves, the week of his death.

It's hilarious that some people take the name of these routes so personally. You certainly have a right to like the Dead, and Pete certainly has a right to name the route whatever he wants.
