Description 

This route is just left of Partners in Crime, on the Freeform Wall in Sand Gulch. It is just right of a shallow dihedral/crack.

The route is identified by six glue-in bolts, with washers behind the hangers. The hangers, Kong-Bonati, have "Italy" stamped on the face. A seventh bolt was apparently added later, at the bottom, by an unknown party, and has a home-made hanger. The anchors are 1/2x4 sleeve bolts with metolius hangers and quicklinks/chain.

History - The FA party felt the line was a bit squeezed by standards of the day, so they called it "No Vacancy." Glue-ins are messy, so a rag was used to keep things clean. A female climber came by, most curious about the route construction, and especially the old pair of underwear used to tidy things up, and dubbed the new route, "Tighty Whities."


Protection 

7 bolts to the anchor - six original, on standard 3/8" hangers; one added later by unknown party, on a home-made hanger.
