The Rock Deluxe says that this line is actually a two pitch route called Mako. Not sure which one is correct?

It is Mako and was put up by a bunch from AATC on an instruction course with Chris Burtenshaw. The last pitch through the roof joins one of the original exits (a crack line slightly R) for Red arete much of this has been climbed previously both roped and solo.

"Kermit" is the name given in SIR. "Mako" in RD. Both guides published in 2004...so, who knows which name is right.
RD does give credit to the FA though...
