This is BS, it is known as Pipeline. 5.11 I climbed this with Bob Wade of the Ute Mountaineer shop in Aspen. Sex Wax is a contrived variation. Pipeline is a cool overhanging (leaning) flare with thin stemming, and it took small wires well. It is a solid, old school, 5.11 trad route or was. Do bolt happy sporty climbers get to supercede our original name? Just saying, just asking. Steve Shea
