It's crazy I'd never heard of Mike Wazowski until recently and now within a couple months there are two routes in NM named after him. What are the odds? Jan 18, 2011

It's a shame, but the wall has been horribly abused (shooting backstop, graffitti mural) over the years. Harry chose the name after seeing Mike just a few feet around the corner from the base of the route. Jan 18, 2011

That is a shame about the wall but I appreciate the story behind the name of the route. Rob, were you and Harry at the Red River Gorge in October? If so, we met you at the Drive-By Crag. If not, there's another super talented father/son combo from AZ out there. Jan 18, 2011

In fact, that was us at the RRG. That's really nice of you to say. It was sure fun running into people from NM and AZ. Jan 18, 2011

Harry renamed the route with a phrase from his favorite short story so as not to duplicate. Jan 18, 2011

I like the new name, Harry and Rob. I've never been to Mentmore but keep meaning to stop by when driving on I-40. One of these days. Keep up the good work out there. Jan 18, 2011
