[Hide Comment] the route got it's name while the second bolt was being drilled. it takes a long time to drill a hole with the motor running in reverse. Feb 9, 2015

[Hide Comment] This one is much harder than 10d.

11d is probably more realistic with a hard clip on the second to last bolt.

All routes now have anchors. Oct 12, 2017
