Tilt-a-Whirl is a route with some history, and a victim of a lack of documentation of that history.
Back in the 80s before Yellow Bluff was closed to climbers, Bernard Wolfe established Tilt-a-Whirl as a 5.11 trad route. After the crag was closed and lay dormant for 20 years, knowledge of this and other routes faded from memory. Flash forward to 2009 when the SCC succeeded in re-opening Yellow Bluff; on the grand opening day, few if any of the original route developers were around to share their knowledge. As a result, Tilt-a-Whirl was unknowingly retro-bolted and re-named Little Angry Jamie. More recently, its history has come to light and the final disposition of the route and its retro-bolts has yet to be determined.
