Magical Chrome Plated Semi-Automatic Enema Syringe


If you can believe it, this one is just referred to as "The Syringe" in the newest guidebook.

Another good one:
Make That Move or It's the Six Foot Groove at the 'Gunks I think.

A few that come to mind either because I've been on them, or (mostly) because their names really are that memorable from the guidebook:

The Crotchrobber
(Think hard, thin moves while stepping around a sharp arete)

Fat Girls on Mopeds

Mouse Tracks

Fontainebleau Me

Fistula

Four Shower Tokens, a Guinness, and My Girl

Bill and Tee's Excellent Adventure
(After Bill and Tee's convenience store outside of Jackson Falls, Il)

And of course there's always the Sex Wall at Devil's Lake, with Foreplay, Orgasm, Orgasm Direct, Resolution, and Second Coming.

North Face - doesn't matter where -- the name itself just inspires all kinds of demoralizing confidence.

I can't remember where I read about it, but somewhere there is apparently a route named "Strunk and White."


Who are, of course, the authors of the classic grammar tome:

"The Elements of Style"


Anyone know where that climb is?

Personally, I like names that are "plays" on other famous route names, like Grand Giraffe. YDPL8S

My favorite route name of all time is a big wall route in the Wind Rivers. The north face of Mt Hooker has a route called Shady Lady. Simple, subtle, and brilliant.

Some rapid names/features are great. Gotta love Dildo Rock on the Gauley - if you hit it, you are fucked!

When I got the FA of the crack of the south R&J (gym crack!! Sweet, tell the mags!!!) they said I should name it. I wanted it to be called either "Fingerprints on Uranus" or "Hands on my nutsack". Not because it's a good name, but because kids climb there. Totally immature.


"Handstack my Nutsack"

...has a far nicer ring to it and I think that name NEEDS to be used on a FA of an offwidth soon!

"Handcrack my Haas" (Handcrack my Ass!) has already been taken...

I've always been partial to the ones that are like

The Smith/Jones Northwest Arete of the South Butress of Big Rock Formation.

I think even sport routes need names like these.

Dark of the Moon
Although after doing it during a full moon night I think "dark side of the moon" would be oh so much better...

These are side by side cracks on Almost Asshole Rock. We (Dave Gottenborg and I) named them for their lower bodily funtionality and its relationship to the asshole. That and he was in trouble on his lead, quickly followed by me having trouble on mine right next to it.

Lots of clever sounding routes names I actually dislike because they don't have any connection to the route itself. A few that do:

More Monkey Than Funky
Edging Skills or Hospital Bills
Crash and Burn

I could go on, but let me refer you instead to the JTree guidebook. Lots of clever routes names there.
