i'd name my routes "One," and then "Two," and then "Three," and sequentially on and on, all across the country and around the globe, so that when i become the super uber climbing stud that i know i'm destined to be, others might follow in my footsteps and try to repeat the same life long tick list that will span decades, up to "Nine Thousand Eighty-Nine" or whatever, and inadvertently spawning endless controversies about whether doing them out of order is in the spirit of Sean

it depends on the route, what happened when you climbed it-bolted it...I mean the name should remind something.

I prefer not to name my routes. I just don't believe in labeling people or rocks. Once labled, all potential opportunites diminish.

Real reason I don't believe in labeling...I'm no good at climbing and the yosemite decimal system shows me up every time. :wink:

Recently got back from Peru, and I typically read a lot of fiction/non-fiction from the places where I travel. As a result, I've been reading a lot about the Incas.

The Incas revered mountains and stone, right, so I'd really love it if someone would put up a whole Inca Wall and then tell me where it is, so I can climb there. Here are the requirements for a wall worthy of Inca homage:

- be PARTICULARLY beautiful rock. As in the rock itself must be stunning to behold.

- high up, long approach, and have absolutely breath-taking views. Some believe that the Incas built Machu Picchu as a resort, choosing the location for it's exceptionally stunning view of the mountains

- be EPIC

Route names would be:

Manco Gets the Knife - sharp, finny stuff since Manco's throat was slit

Tupac Amaru's Last Stand - route furthest away from the approach and/or with the worst views since Tupac Amaru fled to the jungle

Ch-ch-ch-chicha - route with a lot of variety since Chicha is a festive drink

Aero Continente Cancelled My Flight Again - climb with studly roof move - if you miss it, you're back to square one. Need I say more?

Infierno - hard and in the sun, named after the jungle town I stayed in - yes it was hell

Inca Coca - long route, for when you need that extra little lift to finish it up

To whomever puts up my Inca Wall, since I am no where near the skill level to do this myself, I can think of many more names. ;)

Cheers,
Jen

While bolting a route, our battery drill fell off and rolled down the hill into thick thorny bushes. We couldn't recover it, and a replacement battery cost us a whopping 800 bucks. We eventuallly named the route "800 bucks down the hill".

These are probably already route names but I like them!

1) Reach, bastard! Reach!
2) A dingo ate yo baby!
3) Never a Good Thing.

Nice! That's too good to post here. Someone's gonna steal it for sure.

One day after climbing several routes named after various parts of the female anatomy, a female climber friend of mine (a newbie) decided her revenge would be naming her first route "My Boyfriend's Dick". Imagine a guy having to tell another guy "I climbed My Boyfriend's Dick". The possibilities are endless.

As for me, I don't bother to name my climbs. The gym just takes them down in a couple of months anyway.

Which? "My Boyfriend's Dick"? You can have the name... It'll be years before my friend or I put up anything original. :-)

Don't be so hard, I am sure if you really want to put up a route, a local developer would show you how. Most developers are willing to share the work load if it mean good quality routes to clim/ No you don't have to climb hard, actually, these days, it's easy to put up easy routes than hard ones. Less people are doing it.

Either, I will name a route with the name you gave. I'll send you a copy of the guide. PM me your address.
