The information I found about these routes listed the route names and grades, but did not specify the FA. If these are not the correct names please share, along with FA info.

It's kind of silly to assume that I would take it upon myself to "rename" a bunch of routes on the most obvious, accessible piece of stone in this area. Did the route names somehow get changed sometime during the last 8 years after they were publicly posted in 2009? Oct 1, 2017
Some of the routes shown here are named, yet FA shows "unknown". Marc - do you want to chime in on this before all your routes get re-named? Sep 28, 2017
