I asked Jay (Smith) about his route 'cause it looked, well...decent. He said that the name came from a conversation he had with Randy (Grandstaff) who told him that "All the guides in Europe drive Mercedes." After the FA he said "Now I've got one too." The route is really quite good. Solid gear placements and bolts where you need them. I've done the route a couple of times, but long ago.
