I cleaned a chunk out of the huge mat of moss off of the top when I did this one. I don't think you could've topped it out before then. Josh told me they had looked at it but it hadn't been done at the time. Fun problem, whatever you decide to call it. There wasn't great communication in the "early days" of climbing there, so I think this leads to lots of the confusion. Feb 8, 2015

Josh told me it was called Nutrigrain years ago... Suppose we should go with the first ascentionist huh?

Josh really does need to be the admin of this area... Or Mike I guess... Nov 13, 2014

Zach - Chris Craft says he put this up in 2001 and named it Please Hammer Don't Hurt Em'. Josh didn't disagree. Nov 13, 2014
