I've visited RR off and on since I was a kid and always noticed that there was permadraws on the harder sport climbs on the right side of the gallery. Recently visited and noticed they were all gone. Just curious, is this due to maintenance? people attempting climbs they shouldn't and hurting themselves? Thanks for any info, just wondering!

I also noticed this when I was there a couple of weeks ago, seemed strange to me but I figured the locals have things the way they want. Will be curious to hear why they are gone though, some of the routes are plenty steep enough to justify having them. You know, if you're down with that kind of thing.

Back in May the draws mysteriously disappeared from the Gallery, Trophy, and Secret 13. No one has come forward and claimed responsibility as of yet.

It certainly wasn't due to maintenance, although the right side is certainly due for bolt replacement which may have resulted in changes to the draws once it happens. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
