this climb is just pure fun. i'm thinking of calling it "Be Gentle" since it requires some delicate footwork, plus it's the climb i lost my virginity on, so to speak. what do you guys think?

I'm pretty sure the FA of this route was actually by Don Buland. That Jon guy is always trying to take credit for all his hard work cleaning and setting good lines.
