Trout Fishing in America is the right of the two lines; Fishlips is the left line and is now in the route database. Aug 17, 2014
There are two bolted lines between Shadowcaster and Bigmouth. Not sure which is Trout Fishing in America. The left one is the easier of the two. Both are at least a couple of letter grades easier than Bigmouth. Both have interesting moves to high cruxes. Aug 17, 2014
