AFPA = "Across From Parking Area" or "A Formation Properly Avoided"??

Other suggestions welcome. Feb 11, 2004

My son and I went out to this area yesterday to scope it out and also bouldered a bit. The routes look fun, rock looks good as mentioned, walkoff easy, easy access, ....... is there a reason I am not aware of and should respect, to keep clear of this area Mike M? Feb 12, 2004
Afpa Rock is one of the few formations that allow you to escape the wind. The top is another story. Feb 22, 2004

I take it all back! AFPA is actually pretty good - it is south-facing, sunny, and as Woody mentions, somewhat wind-protected. The routes, while not *classic* by any stretch, are fun and on generally good rock. A good cold/windy-day option. Nov 16, 2004
