|FA= Swiss Andy in 2000-ish. I believe it was called "Silence", over some dust up he encountered by leaving his draws up for a lil' while. Also makes a good C1 practice aid route, which was originally done prior to the bolts.|

The FA of this route was done clean on aid. It has gear all the way up it. Travis, I think you mean it was renamed Silence, as it was originally called Revelation of Doom.
It was bolted as a sport route with a complete disregard of local ethics by Swiss Andy w/ home made hangers. Fixed draws were removed during hunting season and returned to the owner.
Remember folks, these cliffs are on PRIVATE property, this is not Switzerland. We could lose access at any time. It is also easy to walk up to the top of the cliff and hang your pink-point draws before you give it a burn, bro.
either way it is a test piece route for the area. Would be a very hard trad lead.
beware these bolts; the ones he put in on Inflatable Forearms were recently replaced and were all rusty due to galvanic corrosion between stainless hangers and carbon steel bolts.
