The Fixed Hardware Review CommitteeEach year ACE appoints local climbers to serve on the FHRC and administer the review process. FHRC members are responsible for polling the climbing community to determine whether the community supports new route proposals and proposals regarding the addition or relocation of fixed gear. Based on the local climbing community's opinion on the proposals, the FHRC makes a recommendation to the Park to either approve or disapprove those proposals.
