I was with Andy Petefish when he worked on and did this project in 1989. He told me he didn't have enough #0 TCUs or big enough testicles to continue upward and was unwilling to put his fingers in an acid bath to slim down the digits for a few more feet. There you have it!
At my age now, I enjoy the loop from Mushroom Rock (Monument Canyon) via Lassoing the Shaky Steel Otto Pipes, a brief stop at Otto's Bath Tub, and then a quick descent down the Otto Carved Ladder (similar to the Ute Canyon/Liberty Cap Otto Staircase) in back of Gold Star Canyon from where this route is. Good job with the other climbs there.
Probably still a super nice four pitch route to be done there deeper in Gold Star Canyon that look like Lightning Bolt on North Six Shooter.
