Fragile Sandstone: Don't Climb Wet Rock MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Top Heavy is a nice line on good orange rock. Steep dynamic movement through positive holds and fun sequences leads to a very committing and high 'Kelly Mantle'. The crux of Top Heavy may be pulling over the top way out from the hands of your spotters.

Location 

Top Heavy is the center line on the tilted orange face on the East side of the Blue Marble. Take the micro gully from the wash to a pad stance below the start.

Protection 

A bunch of pads for the pad perch.
