First and formost it should be obvious that a route like Fractal Universe is not everyones cup of tea. There is some meh rock found between some really great Sedona sand-choss holds. The gear is specific and small and it does require climbing well above no fall pro. Plus not to mention a funky monkey Vsomething crux sequence above slider nuts. That being said it is also one of the best and most classic heads up serious routes that I can think of in Sedona (this doesnt include the world class Waterfall choss). Expect deliquate sequences, finicky gear, and enough air time above gear to want to bring two chalk bags. Again as for a Sedona choss serious route nothing compairs therfore I call it a 4 star route in a 10 star land of choss.

Also Rodmans concept of Sedona climbing is unrivaled. A route that most folks would have sunk 10 bolts into, Rodman refused and instead placed a bunch of tiny shiny things that at the time were jewelry rack for aid climbing. BAMF
