Seems like a strange route name, and now that I've seen it twice in 2 different areas (Red River Gorge being #2) named by different parties, I assume there is some pop or literary reference.
Pray tell, what is the story?

Yeah, we listened to Zappa's Joes Garage a lot at that time. It was also about this time that Tipper Gore was pushing for the ratings on albums and Zappa and Dee Snyder were the guys who testified to Congress.
The Central Scrutinizer narrates the album and "enforces all the laws that haven't been passed yet."

|Very cool route, Sam. What a contrast of crack climbing to hard face climbing.|
