Access Issue: Fragile Sandstone: Don't Climb Wet Rock Details

Description

Named in a ode to some of the youngsters on my climbing team. You'll have to ask them for a definition...

FPPS is a great highball on a secluded wall that climbs through high quality Coconino Sandstone features. Great movement! My vote as the best line on the wall because of the endurance style moves and the less gnarly top out as the others to the right.

Location

FPPS is on the left side of the Blue Marble Wall. Starts on lower tier before moving left and directly up through the center of the wall. Not to be confused with Top Heavy which goes straight up from start.

Protection

Many Pads, Spotters

Feels like sustained v3/5.11+. FWIW the big whip has gone down with minimal damage :) Dec 9, 2015

Agreed! Those whips were exciting but does not seem overly dangerous. Maybe just PG-13 for landing... Dec 11, 2015
