Just left of firepole

SDS on the bulbous arete, grab the "flippers" one on each side and negotiate the moves to the ledge at 7'. Work up through gastons and slopers to stand on the ledge, or move to the left side of the triangle shaped ledge to a big jug and make a long move up to the point above, topout fairly easily from here.

I heard this called pinball recently. Is fireball wrong? Or is this just known by multiple names like most the routes out here?
