This route is right of Do What on the boulder face right of Espresso. This route has an unfortunate tale. I bolted and FA'd this line with a clean passage up and right of the obvious "hole" that is the right border of Do What. Several people (as in 10+) climbed it the day it was FA'd, all good and smiles. The line was completely independent of Do What and was a fun cruiser route.

Evidently a few months later, persons who shall remain nameless, decided that the line at the singular point near the hole was close enough that the possibility of someone grabbing the right side of the hole was just too much for them to take. As a result, the lines first couple of bolts were artificially forced right away from the natural line and the now "RepoMan" was created. It still shares the same top few bolts and anchors as the original Babes, but is instead a contrived route of low quality.

Sometimes it is too bad when people can't leave others work alone.


Just right of Do What. Ends at the top of the boulder with Fixe quick clip anchors.

isn't there another aka, "All Roughed Up" or something like that?

If that is in reference to another route, it isn't mine, or if it is meaning it has been called additional names, who knows. Babes was enough of a negative experience to cure me of bothering with additional routes at NJC. No point in squabbling over NJC when there was a ton of other rock to develop locally hence the birth of Lucerne.
