If it's in a gym it doesn't deserve a name. It will be gone with-in a month.

I put up a route today. It's got this section that's layback on slopers with high smears for the feet. I named it "Soul Grinder"

I love gym routes with names. It lets me know what my friends are talkin about more easily when we're discussing the indoor thing. At my home gym they always had one route named "the goat" that they changed from time to time and it was always a good climb. Now these routes and their moves are immortilized in our heads. So references can be made when we're describing something else. As for names, I'm saving my list for when i get setting.

call it the craziest thing u can. seriously, the ppl at my gym, one of them, names every TR route he puts up. names such as: "bullrush the hotdog man" "silly putty" "kung-fu gerbles" (a climb no one, not even the owner or ppl sponsered by 5.10 who climb v10's could do), "Under the blood red sky" "the hidden path to fortunes" "the routes stop here" and many other weird names. have fun man.

You could just start using greek letters. Our scientific community uses them for everything, and no one seems to care that mu (U with two tails) means a million different things.

"Hey, remeber athat Psi climb that you had up?"

"Which one, last week's or the one last month."

"No dude, the one from TWO weeks ago!"

Kinda lame, but it would let you focus on climbing instead of poetry.
