True, but there's only a few terms you're going to see on a topo. I think anybody that's going to be able to actually use this information, i going to be able to figure out anything that's not 100% clear. Sep 16, 2014

Fun topo. I bet it changes seasonally though. I was scrambling around out there a few seasons ago and this rock had over 20 fixed heads. Sep 19, 2014

Def changes seasonally which is part of the reason for the "f" in the rating.

The amount of heads on the rock versus the route is different though. Most of the heads on this rock are found on Lost Lid though. That route has so many heads on it, even after I pulled off 15 or so heads and still left enough for it to be a head clip up. I'd be very disappointed if RURP Romp had more heads on it now since you can very easily do it with beaks either hand placed or nailed.

Next time i'm in Joshua tree I'll bring my butter knife back to these routes and clear out more heads if needed. Sep 19, 2014
