This route is the rightmost bolted route on the south side of the Seashell. Unfortunatly Paul Muehl and Bob Archbold felt the need to chop the original bolts. I drilled this route from free stances with some falls. I broke my last 1/4" drill bit on the last hole. I was forced to drill out the hole I had started with a 3/8" drill. The 3/8" bit kept binding. I had drilled the hole once almost. After fighting with the redrill process I decided to stand in a sling on the bolt below to finish the hole. This was justification for the chopping in Muehl and Archbold's minds. The next year Archbold returned and replaced the route while hanging on hooks.....Very logical Bob. There is a mystery bolt up and to the right from the last piton (the route goes direct).
