The furthest right route on the Recovery Room wall, it follows good holds through a straightforward sequence to the anchors. It is, however, blemished by a huge, chipped hold in the middle of an otherwise blank section near the top.


4 bolts to 2 hooks for lowering.

A decent route although the manufactured jug above the 3rd bolt is a bit of overkill. Seriously, did they need something for 2 hands ? A bit of a let down, but if you are here and want a quick clip-up, go nuts, watch the bat shit at the bottom, it may be slick. Sep 18, 2001
The drilled bucket hold, like every other artificial hold in Boulder Canyon, should (and will) be filled in. What a pathetic excuse for a route. While these over the hill dudes with power drills may be prolific, they are usually totally lame. Let's get some new (young) route developers out there who can advance the sport by climbing natural rock. Sep 19, 2001

Can we stop adding chipped routes to the site? Publicity equals legitimacy. Sep 24, 2001
I agree. Artificial routes should not be published and should be filled as a public service. Oct 24, 2001
Why does the 'Boulder climbing community' accept chipped routes? If you allow it to remain, then you are accepting it. Jul 29, 2002
It sounds like this route should be removed from both the site and the cliff. Publicity and acceptance equals legitimacy. Aug 1, 2002
Why does the Boulder Climbing community accept a guidebook with worthless charcoal artwork(questionable) graphics? Because someone painstakingly went to the trouble to produce it otherwise it would not exist. Aug 13, 2002
That's true, they created what otherwise wouldn't exist. Unlike the route developers who chip (vandalize) existing rock to make it climbable. Nov 28, 2005

MP is a great place to document route information, including the degree of manufacturing, so that people may choose to climb the route or not. Removing routes from the site (as many of the previous posts suggested) would make it even more difficult to keep track and make informed decisions about which routes we choose to support as a community.
