[Hide Comment] Kurt Schroeder told me to come up with a jail themed name for this tower, I think who ever put in the bolted 5.10d next to Hard Time should have a strong say. Anyone know who put that route up or have any ideas for names? Commissary Tower/The Commissary/Canteen? The Run? Chow Hall? The Hole? Nov 9, 2011

[Hide Comment] Nick, the 10d to the right is listed on this site as Assault With Battery. Nov 9, 2011
[Hide Comment] Nick,
If it's really important to you to name this rock feel free to name it whatever you want.

Also looks like you flunked the test. John had to tell you the name of the route on the right. Nov 10, 2011

[Hide Comment] I believe there are 3 bolts on this route and only one or two gear placements. Nov 10, 2012
