Tod Anderson thinks the FA was Dave Fortner, b/c he named everything after his crank; but for some reason I thought it was Dave Fields and Ernie Moskovitz.

Mike, you are correct. Dave and I did the FA of this route, and the name is a blend of a Fortner style route name and a ref to the Wood, ending up with something that reminded us of Fortner himself.
