Access Issue: Access to GFNP (Roadside) REQUIRES a Daily Permit Details

Permit Required

***Climbers MUST NOT climb at GFNP without a daily permit per person in each group.*** This route is privately owned and requires a daily per-user permit obtained from the Graining Fork Nature Preserve website.
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.

Description

Climb a highly featured and polished slab to a more vertical highly featured and polished face.

The crux is a matter of balance and the rest of the climb is much easier.

This route used to have the distinction of being the easiest bolted route in the RRG, but this is no longer true. You might call it the most climbed route in the Red, as it had many years of beginner climbers on it before the easier routes were developed.

Despite all that, it is a fun and worthy route.

Location

Walk all the way to the right end of the wall. This is the next to last bolted route on the wall, just left of a right facing flake.

Protection

Bolts, bolts anchors.

We did this route and it was fun and well worth doing. I think the first part is really fun slab.. It ends with chains and quick links. Oct 25, 2008

Scary route for a new leader. I would not project this route as my first lead, a fall would be punishing! Oct 21, 2009

I'm a bit on the short side (5'5") and couldn't quite reach the 4th bolt from the good ledge. As my first lead (and climb at all) in a long while, it was definitely a bit exciting! Nov 23, 2010

Hmm. It couldn't have been later than about 1994 when I was doing this as my first ever lead and fell trying to clip the 4th bolt. My left ankle turned when I hit the wall. Ouch! Jun 5, 2017
