OK, it's cold out. No climbing in 1/2 the country, so it's time for a game of Name That Climb.
For those who have not played before, it works this way:
1) O.P. puts up a picture of a route.
2) People guess the route.
3) If a correct answer is given, the 1st correct guesser puts up a new picture.
4) Rinse and Repeat.

Suggestions-
If you are the first correct guesser, and you are 100% sure, go ahead and post the new picture
If there are a lot of guesses and nobody gets it for 24 hours, then someone can post a new picture.
If there are a lot of guesses and nobody is sure because the OP doesn't answer for 24 hours, again, someone else post a new pic.

I'll start this one off with easy money for someone:

Genesis


And for the record, I tried hard to keep the game going after the last thread was full...
Name That Climb, 2011 edition, Vol. 2.

I kept noticing people trying to post to the old game.

That's why I started this one - and yes, that's Genesis.
I actually re-opened the old thread by deleting a buncha stuff off of it so as to make it < 40 pages and make all the stuff posted show up, so you can see all of that now.
But here we are - new winter season.

This game isn't really working... Just us?

Anyway, your route is Dirtbag @ the Chuckawalla Wall

Pretty sure I'm right... So here is one for YOU Tony. Should be enough clues in the photo to figure it out if you don't recognize it.

Is that the split overhang of the Diving Board up in the upper left hand horizon of the photo?
Must be Nolo Contendre.

I don't have any pics on me right now. So someone else post for me.

Its Russian Arete. I don't know when we're gonna see Ryan again so I'll just post up:

I think there's more than one route in the photo; name the one with the silly fixed chains.

Please describe the photo.


Hint #1: Best served cold
Hint #2: This route is not posted on MP.com, but there is a photo of it on MP.com (besides this photo).
