The story behind the name on this one came from the FA in 2001. Brett Keyes and I bolted it on lead and with a hand drill. It took most of the day. When I grabbed that sinker pocket about 3/4s of the way up, Brett told me I'd be a "Sally" if I used it. So I used it anyway and became a Sally, I guess, and the name was born. I think this route has become one of the better routes for its grade the Fume Wall.
