3 out of 5 stars Aha!

I thought this was just called "Bastard Direct" for some reason. Easier than Bastard.

5 out of 5 stars FA and a quadruple entendre

Alot of route names are puns; some are double entendres. I put the working name "Burning Sensations" on the application for this route--a double entendre for forarm pump plus a reference to Syphilis which brings companion route "Bastards in the Brothel" into the House of Pain wall's theme of pain.

By the day of bolting, the name acquired two more entendres: 3. I was suffering from some sunburn the previous weekend.
4. After bolting and failing on the first FA attempt, I was real tired. As I sat there trying to rest, I felt more and more tired. Then Tyler Beattie fed me some hot Wasabi-infused edamame. Zing! I was revived and sent it. WASABI!!!!!
