Apologies, I keep forgetting CA is massive and unless you’re relatively local, acronyms are likely useless

MCSP is still open for climbing. It’s only closed to vehicular traffic. The camp grounds and parking lot have been closed since the weekend. If you live with your climbing partner, they have deemed it okay to climb.
I did see large groups TR ape wall yesterday and I thought that there was no way all those people live together..

Who’s “they”, and how do they make that determination on the spot? 

Second sentence verifies the continuous selfish, self-centered and ignorant attitude of many climbers in the area. There were (and still are daily) many going to Stoney, despite Stay-At-Home, park closure, distancing and heavy rains.

So you’re saying folks are climbing when it’s wet? 

Or are you seeing cars parked? 
I was out of the country all last week till Monday nite.... thinking of going Thursday to work on “The Art Removal Project” - alone. If I see people climbing then we will have “the talk”.

“They” being California state park officials(916) 445-8949Talk to the kind lady on the phone about what is acceptable and considered safe. And as I hope you do with all aspects of your life, along with climbing, consider the information you are given and evaluate it for yourself.

Verified through video taken of them climbing via local friends. He informed some of them that were clueless, others knew they shouldn’t be there. 

Seemed like as soon as there was a break in the rain throughout the week, there were people lugging pads in there, but nothing new nowadays unfortunately.

Good on your friend, I never hesitate to introduce myself and let them know about the wet, fragile stone. I find that most are clueless, because plastic never gets weak when wet. I try to offer up other spots they could visit- I carry a SoCal GB and point out the spots.
