The road is closed to through traffic, but I went up last weekend and was able to drive to the climbers lot without a problem.

What about the walls just up from the lone boulder? I remember we had a number of good problems in there, and a few were excellent for the area. Luke Evans and I spent a lot of time up there, even digging out huge boulders from underneath the landings... I imagine the woods probably took them over once again. Cool to see the activity. JJ
