This route used to be a toprope problem called Dead Dog Arete (or Prow Right) until Mike Endrizzi bolted it by mistake in 2006 (Mike, please post an explanation, sounds like an interesting story). Starts left of Dead Dog Face, where the American flag is spraypainted on. Begin in middle of the prow, follow the bolt line to where it diverges, take a right around the corner to the last bolt and anchors on Dead Dog Face. It's a good climb, an arĂȘte hugger, with a couple thoughtful moves. Watch your rope for possible abrasion as you round the corner onto the face.

The name "Gene Machine" is in honor of Mike Endrizzi's mentor in life Gene Leonard.

It would be pretty easy to deck this route on many of the ledges with the bolts are set up the way they are. Nov 22, 2013
