***Climbers MUST NOT climb at GFNP without a daily permit per person in each group.*** This isn't about just you getting away with climbing for a day without a permit--this is about the climbing community respecting private land to ensure continued access privileges.
Don't be selfish--get a permit or climb elsewhere.In May 2011, after privilege abuse by climbers, Roadside was closed to all access. In March 2015, the area reopened as Graining Fork Nature Preserve (GFNP) with access limited to users obtaining a required daily permit and a suggested donation.
While obtaining the daily permit, it is suggested to make a small donation to show appreciation for the area being open and to help with costs associated with maintaining the preserve. If you have a problem with making a donation, consider that people routinely pay upwards of $10 for a movie at the theater and that only lasts two hours. Here, climbers get access to amazing routes for an entire day for $5 or $10 per person. What a deal!
Climbers should be on their utmost best behavior at GFNP. The rules include:
* Packing your poop and toilet paper out
* Leaving your dogs at home
* No alcohol or drugs
* Not blasting music
* Being respectful of the area. Treat the area like you'd treat your own backyard.
