Judging by the route photos above,provided by Mark, I'd have to say the left photo is Hotter than Hell and the one on the right is Cold Day in Hell.
I can't quite make out the finger crack but I think I spy a hornets nest near the obvious bulge.

All I know is if I was gonna squeeze a route in between them I would certainly be keeping as far to the left as possible.

Actually, I didn't say that. Ideally both would come on a date. Madeline would stimulate my brain untill my mind was blown, and then hopefully I would leave in Paris' limo for Champagne and a bubble bath...No sense being narrow minded!

My point was that there are two differant aesthetics and each may be valid at the right time.

I find women with high quality brains atractive, but Paris does have a rather infectious smile  :D

Just give her a good scrub with a wire brush and you will be fine.

Back on the more interesting topic (at least to me)  I see the Bacar Yerin as a pretty legitamet classic for several reasons.
#1 it gets climbed.
#2 lots of people aspire to climb it or at least have climbed it.
#3. See #1. It gets climbed.

Even if it did not get climbed it would be a non issue as they have so much rock out there that there is pleanty of room for eveyone to play in the sandbox.

What I see as a travesty is the climb that is bolted poorly and never climbed. No one even wants to climb it. That folks is a real waste of rock.

On the other hand  annother form of travesty is Tom Rosecans  squeeze retro bolt job between Screaming Meany and little finger that completly changes the nature of both climbs..  Part of the charm of Little finger is that there are no fixed belays other than a single fixed pin on P1. The new leader was commited to getting up that climb on their own power or leaving expensive gear behind.  Now climbers on little finger get sucked 10ft left to bolted belays. Screaming Meany is a commiting but populer 5.8 25ft left of Little finger. Once you were out there you were commited to some fairly serious fun climbing. Now it is impossible to Climb screaming Meany without clipping the 1st 2 bolts of Toms retro Squeeze job.  The 1st of those retro bolts is Ok in my book as it draws you into the direct line that was often avoided pre bolt. The 2nd retro bolt is a pure travesty that draws you off rt and just generaly messes up the feel of the 1st pitch of screaming Meany.

Yep, popularity = it gets climbed. If it does not get climbed it is not popular, even if you think many people are "aspiring" to climb it.

Annother thought is how many folks actually WANT to climb it VS those who want to be know as haveing climbed it ;)
