|Sorry about this, but I also did the FA of this back in '98, only to discover some time later that it was the top pitch of "Rock For Climbing Routes To" an Alec Sharp route from ages ago.It felt harder than 10b to me.|

My apologies, ac.
We did our homework (including pouring over the CB.com database to see if an FA had already been claimed), but unfortunately we didn't get an "A". Somehow we had a collective team brain fart and completely missed the last part of Rossiter's description of "Rock for Climbing Routes", even though that's exactly what we were looking for.
Lesson learned, although it's a damn shame there can't be a route around here named "Fava Beans", especially since this Chianti really is quite nice.

|Rock for Climbing Routes To is an independent 3 pitch (as originally done) line that begins on the arete left of the first pitch of Break on Through and ends as described here. Perhaps Andy could provide additional FA details.|
