Looks like a pretty cool climb from the ground. Too bad some immature juvenile frat boy named it, because now my wife will never belay me on it.

Seriously? It's just a piece of rock dude, and a mighty fine one too. If you want to climb it, I'd suggest finding another belayer and giving it a go. Or, you & Gretel could just call it "the route with the unspeakable name" and she could just look the other way while she belay's you.
Dis the name or the quality of the route all you want, after you climb it. No need to talk shit about someone who's put so much time, money & effort into this area.

Check out this link if you really want to be offended. There are definitely some routes for Gretel to avoid.

Some thoughts to keep in mind for route-naming from GK Chesterton:

"Men are men; but Man is a woman."

"The chief difference between the average man and the average woman is that the woman is a ruler and the man is not."

"When you call a thing female, you have yielded to it utterly."

Buster has its own set of anchors now, no more traversing at the top needed.

I'd like to take all the credit, Dave, but Kevin did the grunt work!

The crux was definitely entering into crack system. Height was the biggest issue for me trying a delicate reach to the good crimp just below the crack. Other than that, not too shabby at all, a fine route.
