Description

I have found descriptions of this route in the following guidebooks: Ament and Erickson's "5.10" (1972); Ament and McCarty's "High over Boulder" (1976 and 1985); Rossiter's "Boulder Climbs North" (1988); and Rossiter's "Boulder Canyon" (1999). In the first of these guides, the name of Tobias's partner is different from the one listed in the subsequent three. Each of these guides contains a different description of the route; BCN has a vague topo that shows the beginning of the route (in a position that is different from at least one of the written descriptions); BCN and BC have good photos of the Bihedral area (without showing the route's location). Rossiter's photos show many possibilities. Because guidebook writers often just paraphrase previously published descriptions, while attempting to disguise outright plagiarism, contradictory and/or vague information is often the result.

Whew — lots of dissection of unimportant trivia — good thing these aren't important trivia.
