Description

This is the center route on this wall with a chainlink hanger down low. Start by climbing up a lieback feature from the lowest point on the wall. Continue following bolted line to anchors. The route wanders a bit. Some key holds were broken off at some point but the climb still goes. The route is a very steep slab climb with reasonable protection. The route has never been on-sighted. In fact Brent's best effort was a redpoint/pinkpoint using preplaced long runners on the last two bolts. This route shares anchors with "Don't Shoot". Brent logged about 15 days of effort before freeing all of the moves on the lead and making a comment of not wanting to return to the route again. The story behind the name is aimed at the vindictive crap certain members of the BH climbing community were casting upon the motivated longterm climbers of the time.

Protection

One set of Stoppers (optional) and 16 Quickdraws

I can say that this route is very hard, I climbed it to the half way point a few years ago. I bailed right onto dont shoot after seven bolts worth of desperate moves. I didn't make it to the crux, which is at the top. This route will have to be scrubbed a bit before a serious attempt is made. My attempt was not serious as I was laughing most of the way. I actually went in to do dont shoot and was one route off. West world rocks. Jun 9, 2004
