Follow existing trails and climb using removable protection or in climbing areas with existing approved fixed anchors or bolts. Development of any new rock climbing, bouldering or rappelling areas and development of any climbing routes involving the permanent installation of new fixed anchors or new trail construction requires prior Forest Service authorization.
Why is it called Headstone Surfer? That is a typical question. Check out the chest high boulder at the base of the climb. This used to be perched in the middle of the climb. Hugh says there's about as much underground as what's visible above ground. He "surfed" it out on the FA.
Great route with a stemming crux. It's not over after that though. The dihedral goes on and on and on it seems like. Stellar rock in a beautiful setting.
