Description

The "FAP ROP" Boulder is a stacked boulder located on the north side of the Emanon area. It is overhanging on three sides with the North and West sides containing several new, high quality lines as well as some awesome undone projects. I expect that there will be around 9 independent lines once this thing gets fully developed. The rock quality is generally quite good, although there is some choss here and there, and some of the problems will likely continue to clean up a bit. The north and west sides stay shady until early afternoon and can offer some shelter in case of a thunderstorm (although the Mothership is a way better place to wait out a big one). We found this boulder on 8/6/16 after reading about the Emanon area - while it looked like a little cleaning had been done, upon closer inspection it did not appear that any of the lines have been climbed, as quite a bit of cleaning was still required. If I am mistaken and any of these lines have in fact been climbed, please let me know. The name is an acronym for "First Anniversary Party Rock of Plenty," as it was discovered the weekend my wife and I were celebrating our first anniversary...and it has plenty to offer.

Getting There

There are a few ways to get to this particular boulder, and I expect that as more development occurs in this area (which it should because this place is pretty friggin' sweet), there may be a formal trail leading to this specific sector. For now, one can follow the directions to the Blockhead Boulder (walk down the dirt road to just before the top of the S curve, then take a left, and follow the incredibly well-marked path to the Shadowboxing Boulder (nice work, Ternes!), then continue up over the hill and down the other side), only take a hard left once you can see the Blockhead Boulder in front of you down the hill. There were some cairns leading the way when we were there. If you contour along the hill heading north for a minute or two, you can't miss it.

There was only 1 line done on this boulder. Thanks for helping develop. The best access to this boulder is from the path to the left of Gumbi Boulder. Head over the hill following the path, and at the bottom of the hill head left about 100 feet. Can't miss it. As Chan said, cairns lead the way. Aug 10, 2016
