RyanD, not the corner. The line of loose looking flakes left of the corner. Has a couple rusted studs on top, a buttonhead at the bottom and a few pinscars on the way.

While on the topic of obscure single pitch "yur probably gunna die" aid routes...

Does anyone know anything about an aid route on the south side of fatty boulder?

Does anyone know anything about the aid route 5m to the right of Creepshow on the Cacodemon?

Campbell guide 1985 didn't have it listed. I have it drawn in in pencil with a question mark in mine from the 90s. Ask Maddaloni - he will probably know.

I found 2 cams on my rack that don't belong to me. Climbed at Penny Lane on Saturday Feb 2. Describe them and I can get them back to you.

Well, .... there's two of them, uh.... they have curvy wiggly things on top, and uh... when you pull the little bar down all the curvy things move at the same time. And oh yeah! the webbing on them is different colours. They must be mine. :)

Hey Luke, speaking of obscure aid routes, did you ever get around to doing Amphitheatre on the Apron? Or is it on the agenda for this summer?

Hmm, what is this "Amphitheatre" of which you speak....

Ancient, long neglected aid route left of Snake. No doubt would go free today, with some work.

Aid route on the Apron? Now that's interesting.

I imagine someone aiding Banana Peel. The hook he's on pops and...

...and he lies there on the low-angle slab for a while, then stands up, ditches the aiders, and walks up to the top.

But Amphitheater? Have to go look that one up. (Although climbing it at this time of year would probably be more like amphibian theater.

Whoo Hoo! Found it. In the Holy Word of Gordie Smaill, Book of Apron, Page 74, Paragraph 2:

Amphitheatre
first ascent: Tony Ellis and Glenn Woodsworth 1965
time: four hours
5.3 A2
Arrive on the Stage via Gringo a-go-go or Snake. Start off the left side and free to the overhangs above. Nail the leaning corner above to a hanging station on steep slabs. Work up and right to the final overhanging corner. Hammer up it to easy slabs above.
equipment: Knife blades up to one inch.

Can't believe I never tried it.

iirc Amphitheatre isn't much different from Gringo-a-Gogo, at least at the old aid crux.

Amphitheatre and Gringo are entirely separate lines. They cross each other, but otherwise are completely different. Both are very old school. No power drill rap bolting on either route. No wussy cleaning either! :)

And no bolts on either route! Go for them, Ghost!
