Description

A very good route and a good warmup. EFR drilled it omitting the last bolt which added a nice bit of spice to the lead. But quite a few folks complained about the runout, so I finally relented and added a bolt before the anchor.

The name is in honor of Nad Sacul (and taken from the refrain "Daddy likes men" from "We're a Happy Family" by The Ramones).

Location

The vertical northwest face of The Helmet has a pronounced roof/bulge on its left side. Danny climbs up to the right side of the roof/bulge, and skirts it on the right. It is the middle route of the 7 up the vertical face.

Protection

Bolts.

I'm happy the bolt's there. I like my warmups mild, my projects hard, and my post-redpoint burrito spicy.

Very fun route. May 4, 2010
