I heard from some employees at my local gym that Royal Robbins has bolted a route at Enchanted Rock. Does anybody know whether or not this is true and if so what the name of the route is?

Edit: changed the word set to bolted

Pet peeve of mine---routes on natural rock--especially trad routes were "put up" or "first climbed" by someone, not "set".

Agreed. Unless Royal brought his Allen Key and a bunch of Metolius mini jugs and crimpers to do the route in question it was put up not set.
