The Cater Guide may have the rating for Double Feature (route to the left) mixed up with this route. Guide gives, 5.11 b/c, stiff for the grade. Climb up the face making slab moves on shallow sloping horizontals to reach the 2nd bolt. Easy climbing will gain a flake system which you will follow to it's end. From here, head a bit left and then move back right once you gain a stance (crux). Follow the face straight up to reach the shuts. Use the lack of lichen as your guide to where the route should go.


This route starts about 15 ft to the left of the Honeymooner's Ladders.


8 bolts, shuts.

Though the route is beyond my capabilities (made it 3/4 of the way up on TR) this is a fun climb.

No way this thing is 11d. I wouldn't give it anything more than 11b.

On the FA, the climber's Honemaster Gear Sling broke and sent all his gear tumbling to the ground, hence the name, Bonemaster Gear Fling.
I dont know if Carl or Bob was leading at the time.
My half hearted attempt at NRG history.
