Description

One of the best routes at Little Falls and listed at 5.10+ in the old guidebook, Fred P. Jones is a great, steep, sustained route, probably in the low 5.11 range. The lower section is the route's technical crux, climbing through good crimps to gain a big horizontal jug "rest." The top half of the route gets progressivly more overhanging with big moves through good-but-not-great holds.

Location

The large, concave face towards the east end of the island, Fred P. Jones is easily identified by the big horizontal splitting it at half height.

Protection

TR off two old bolts; back them up with a long extension to a tree.

Probably the best route on Moss Island. The bolts are in good shape and do not need backed up anymore. Jul 17, 2014
