Description 

The bolted line furthest right on the crag, to the right of Smegma Deluxe. Climb out the overhang, and pull yourself onto the face. If not solid at the grade, you may want to stick the first bolt or put a crash pad underneath you for the first few moves.

Protection 

Bolts to anchors.

Not that it matters, but I bolted this route and did the FA back in 1999. Certainly didn't give the route this name.

Given the name, I assumed you didn't name it Rob. Since you established it and did the FA, do you have a more appropriate name for it? I don't know anything about the Mentmore area (or local "politics") but we can certainly add the "a.k.a." text for an alternate name.

Local climber Scott H named it. I don't know the details but it sounds like he had some kind of issue RE the route establishment and/or the establisher (Rob). Yes, a new name would be totally acceptable, especially if it is from the individual that did the first ascent.
