Description

In the old days, routes were established from the ground up (how archaic!). The bolt wars were raging in the mid-80's, and if you didn't belong to the chic clique or live up to their unwritten standards, you'd likely see your efforts fall victim to a chopper's chisel. Given the proliferation of bolts and routes on Echo Rock, this route was established in a manner that precluded removal: an on-sight free-solo. The name was a tongue-in-cheek commentary for the times. In an ironic twist, one of the resident "big-names" came along shortly afterwards and placed the bolt.

Climb the middle of the face left of Double Dip past a single bolt. Watch out for crunchy rock and bad holds. Clipping the bolt is optional - it is still a "no-falls" type of route. Not recommended for the aspiring 5.8 leader, but it will cure campground boredom.

One bolt (added after the initial ascent)

The bolt is long gone, so the route has been returned to it's original X-rated status, and you can see the choped bolt about a third of the way up, about 10 feet below a big loose flake. 6 days ago
