I've given up caring. Ask May to come up with a name for it, that would be nice.

How about 'Gilbert Ryle'.

a representative of the generation of British ordinary language philosophers. An advocate of Dualism:

In philosophy of mind, dualism is a set of views about the relationship between mind and matter, which begins with the claim that mental phenomena are, in some respects, non-physical:

"Ideas on mind/body dualism originate at least as far back as Zarathushtra. Plato and Aristotle deal with speculations as to the existence of an incorporeal soul that bore the faculties of intelligence and wisdom. They maintained, for different reasons, that people's "intelligence" (a faculty of the mind or soul) could not be identified with, or explained in terms of, their physical body.[
 In philosophy of mind, dualism is a set of views about the relationship between mind and matter, which begins with the claim that mental phenomena are, in some respects, non-physical".

Some argument for the idea of a soul i think?

Gilbert's a great name though.

As is Peahound :)

as a late entrant into this debate, and as a new father who's had no sleep for about 72 hours, I'd like to throw this up the flagpole: names like "peahound", "gerty berwick" and "my friend-of-the-family the pineapple" are fucking dreadful. These are monster lines and deserve monster names, these aren't some toss lines in the arse end of the slate quarries you know. Names you need to aspire to, names so fly that you need to inform air traffic control when you're about to say them. To be a complete climber, you need to be able to send and to name. look to the likes of moffatt, gaskins, moon and fawcett for guidance. People say that the great threats to british climbing are shit like wirebrushing, toproping, chipping, access issues - I say bullshit, the tide of shit new route names needs capping in the ass before it turns into some kind of linguistically effluent bloodbath. these things matter for fucks sake. And on that bombshell I bid you good day.

"Ben's Arete". Perfect.

when you're as fly as BB Guns and some of his peers, you need to be dropping a few "Ben's Arete/Roof/Traverse/Dihedral*" type names here and there. Gotta think of the legacy.

*delete as appropriate.

Agree with sentiment, but is this not edging into Mr Moon's naming rights territory? Also eponymous feature names normally come about because the original name is forgotten, or the FA couldn't be arsed naming the problem in the first place.

This is a grand line, it needs a grand name. C'mon Ben dig deep and give us something timeless, epic and inspiring.

I'm sure guidebook writers/printers will love that (although if they use the type setting software LaTeX anyway it shouldn't be a problem).

Was randomly up at Rylstone last week and couldn't resist a quick try; the movement seems really unique - it's certainly one of the best highballs on grit, right up there with with Careless Torque, Superbloc and Piton Crack.

Did you use the high left pocket, Ben? From what point is it 'only' 7b+? And do I have to read Jerry's book first?

the democratic ukb name is, by consensus, Rylstone Cowboy (26.9%)
not that that means anything....

Its Peahound.

I think the crux moves are getting the pocket and then using it to get established on the rib.

The crux is getting the high left pocket, and it was from this hold to the top that I reckoned 7b+jw.

Was randomly up at Rylstone last week

Quality! I often find myself randomly at crags with a 50min approach and randomly find a rope and boots in my bag.

I know this is gonna dissapoint a few, and I was very tempted by Peahound, but it is Lanny Bassham.
