This is the bolted line to the right of Baba Cool. Make a wild first move that leads up to steep, thin crystal face climbing. A great route of its grade in the area.

I think you're right, Brent... I've heard it both ways, but I believe it shows up as "Meat Means Murder" in the guidebook...

The FA was Rusty Lewis. Ian Pressler and Dave Brumbaugh put the route up but because of the lack of light only got the FA on baba cool. Rusty found our project before we could get back to comlete the FA.

Meat is Murder was an album by the Smiths. I stole the name from them. I don't know who is claiming Dave and Ian put up the route but they are sorely mistaken. I thought I did the first ascent as well but Rusty could have aced me out, he did that a lot. The route was originally 11a until that punk Mike Lilygren Ripped off a key hold. Wasn't challenging enough, no doubt.

A key hold broke from underneath me on this route in the early 90's. A cube crystal about 3/4" x 3/4" x3/4". It was about 1/2 way up the route. My belayer found the hold. I still have the chalky little sucker and a little scar on my chin.
