Topher Donahue with client made the FA in 2000 of a line up the center of the triangular buttress which finished on the left edge of the Love Route roof. He called it "Lust Route" aka 'Bold is Love' -10a. The R rating is pretty much a given for any route on Hallett.
You can find him at alpinecreative.com I remember his saying it was the best route he had done on Hallett...
Always tough with Hallett figuring out what major features have been climbed and not?
