Description Suggest change

After a lengthy thought process, and conversations with others in the local climbing community, I decided that this was a worthy route to establish. I really enjoyed the climbing, so hopefully others will too.

The name is a spoof on the International Affair theme, and a tip of the hat to the Bill Murray movie. It's also kind of a jab at myself, seeing as how I added this route right in the middle of everything at Supercrack Buttress. Interpret it how you will. I drilled all three protection bolts and the anchor on lead, from the ground up. Although it's short, it packs some engaging climbing like its neighbor.

Delicate and powerful climbing with tiny gear brings you to a stance at the first bolt. From there, wild chimneying and stemming, and one more bouldery sequence lead to the anchor.

I found the c3s to work best; red to grey. There are 3 protection bolts and a nice ring anchor
