Yeah, we used to TR it when rapping down that side of the wall. I know for certain that Rich Jollisaint TR'd it in about '90. But I'm sure that it was done at least 10 years before him... Sep 16, 2006
Maybe we can change the name to Powerplay for the right version & leave Hole Lotta Fun on as the left variation.

My guess is that it was top roped long before any of us started climbing here. Any other names out there?

I did this route free, onsight, back in March 1992 with my partner Mike Power. At the time we intended to do Swallow, but got on this instead. Went back and repeated it a year later.

We called the route "Powerplay."Rating - 5.8R (a little "R" towards the top).

The route takes pretty good gear. You can get in 5 or six decent pieces...tiny to 1 inch cams.
