[Hide Comment] Climb The first 5 bolts of Rickety Rock and head left at the roof clipping 2 new bolts and climb the upper arete of Box of Chocolates. This route combines the best of both climbs with an airy crux sequence. Mar 31, 2013

[Hide Comment] Um, who is a King Crimson fan? I guess I have to assume Fred came up with this name. The linkup was his vision. Did he send it finally? I sent it last year right after the bolts went in and wanted to call it Bermanator Strikes Back, I guess that didn't stick. so be it. Apr 3, 2013
