worst sport route

Post by Horatio Felacio » Wed Jan 09, 2008 4:49 pm

so after reading the about what reachhigh thinks is the worst bolted route in the red (see 'online guidebook comments' thread), i'd like to get a census on the absolute WORST bolted route of each number grade in the red.

i'm particularly interested in what rro and anticlimber have to say about this...they seem to like a lot of routes, which is really cool!...but whatever they think sucks balls must be powerful stuff.


my votes:

5.9 - scabies
5.10 & 5.11 - routes at the unlode or buzz at the oasis
5.12 - eric and brians excellent adventure
5.13 - cosmic sausage
Yo HO!! Just got me a code red and some funyons big dawg!!! SHIT YEAH! - Ray, excited about his breakfast

5.9: Brother Stair
5.10: Brother Stair while staying to the right of the arete
5.11: Brother Stair, sit start, while staying to the right of the arete
5.12: Brother Stair, sit start, while staying to the right of the arete and skipping 2 holds in the crux sequence down low
5.13: Brother Stair after doing the boulder problem under the roof and to the left of Brother Stair, and then staying to the right of the arete and skipping 2 holds in the crux sequence down low

dance of the druids is a really nice route except for the giant 2 foot high pile of mud on the ledge 1/3rd up

you like scabies more than brother stair? that's a tough call and worthy of it's own poll.

dance of the druids...i'll try and remember to skip that one.

scabies sucks, but not as much as that other one way to the right...

Blood Money

Then there's:

Shaggy
Hooky Pals
Listerine Girl
Jump for Joy

Chosspile 5.11d at Sky Bridge Ridge. I don't know if that was it's original name, but fuggin' A - what a steamy pile of crap summed up in one word. Bird shit everywhere up top, potato chip thin rock, rope drag, A0 start, ledge fall potential. It has everything.

Stay Left should be sanded completely off Military Wall and replaced with some nice chiseled hand holds with permanent five inch tick marks painted on with reflective road paint.

Lord of the Flies...the only time I've heard Bob use a string of bad words. I think every newbie should do it, though.

Lord of the Flies is pretty fuckin terrible.

The rightmost 11a at Indy Wall is worse. Complete waste of bolts.

At least all the horrible easy routes from the old crags were there just to fill a need for easy routes...

Theres no excuse for a bad 11.

Lord of the Flies is not so bad if you stay to the left of the bolts, otherwise, its a heap.
