This was the very first FA that I had done. I hand-drilled a 3/8" star drive bolt (later replaced by myself), finished climbing the route, brought Jen up and we walked off. I called it Action By The Fraction, a line taken from a song by Translator ("We split action by the fraction in Los Angeles") We rated it 5.9 'cause I didn't know any better. PVB later "guided" Stefan Glowacz around RR and he (Stefan) was photographed on this route for the RR section. Paul later put up A Fraction of the Action. I don't know who added the shuts at the top of our route or who decided to change the names of these routes.
