This route was first climbed in 1996 by Charlie Fowler and his partner, named Stephan. Instead of the two bolts that have just recently been placed three pitons were fixed (later two) and left in place.
The original name given by Charlie, which I feel should still be honored, is "BOXED IN".

|Boxed In or Thinking Outside of the Box...however you look at it, it has become a route worth jumping on. Thanks to Jack for digging into the archives and finding the FA info on this excellent line. If you get a chance to climb it, you will enjoy passing a single piece of the original route history, Charlie's broken KB, up on the thin corner. Just did this route the other night, sooooo good! Thanks again, Jack!|

|Super fun route! I loved the lower moves following the seam into the corner. Once there, the feet are there but thin, just find them. The crack has good tools. Finding your exit onto the ice is cool, good when the ice is low and you can stem. A couple powerful moves get you on the ice.|
