Stick clip the first bolt then start off stemming up the left corner until it becomes possible to move right towards the first bolt. Move up barndoor liebacks then left into a corner capped with a roof. Pull the roof and move up onto a crystal face just below the anchors. This route has several cruxes requiring mastery of different techniques.


This is the second route encountered on the right side as you walk into the Gash.


7 Bolts (Stick Clip First Bolt); Chain Anchors on top

Love to hear the origin of the name.

Chris, Two different motivating factors:
1. People that are just to darned territorial and opinionated.
2. The now defunct "Mountain Freak" magazine had a different mountain town it would highlight in each issue. One of topics covered for each town were things to say that were most likely to "Tweak the Local Xenophobes".
