Description

The Bill Robins memorial route. Seems appropriate for Bill, since he was sort of a rebel trad climber, and also because it is wide and chossy, both of which Bill was great at climbing. Bill was quite the fixture at these crags from around the mid 2000's going back to the 80's. I know I saw him in the 90's in his desert camo outfit of painter pants, long sleeve white shirt and desert sun hat. Same oufit in the early 2000's, and usually soloing some crack. I watched him solo George and Martha and Air Guitar- first time I had seen anyone solo something so steep.Quite a few crack routes were done by him first ascent onsight free solo.
My favorite Bill memory is him standing mid King Pins area peeing right on the trail, either did not care or liked showing it off.

Location

obvious crack right of Psychogenic, and left of Allegro Con Brio.

Protection

hand to fists for pro, #6 optional.

This route is mostly a hand crack, with only one fat piece for the moves over the final roof. This dooms the route to obscurity or TR only. Nov 5, 2016
