Vertical start with bolts with easy gear in middle section finishing with bolts and chains. This route pays homage to the government bailout of GM!!

This is not a trad climb. At best, it's a mixed route, but there's really only one placement. This is the bolt line to the right of the black streak.

This route needs to either be labeled as a mixed route, or it needs to be 5.6R. Calling it sport infers that you stand a decent chance of not getting hurt if you fall, which is definitely not true here. There's something like a 30 foot runout between the 3rd and 4th bolt. New climbers are going to lead a route labeled as 5.6 Sport and they're going to find themselves in over their heads.

If you notice the description lists gear in the middle. I originally had this route as trad and someone complained because it only has one gear placement. I changed it to sport and added that it needs gear. There is no selection on MP for mixed as a route description.
