DescriptionThe roadside crag has been "discovered" by numerous parties, some before bolting, some after. But until Paul Bernard's great book "Rock climbs of Northeast California" few knew of names of routes or FA's in the area. Hence many names for the same route.
French Fried Knuckle Buster is a case in point. A few un-named guys got together and did all the lines here, naming everything "French Fried....". No one remembers why, just happened.
The line goes straight up through 3 mini roofs, with at least 2 dynos and as many lock off dead points. Named for the busted knuckles you might get if you blow the last big dyno. He did.
