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 the nice edgey slab to a bulge. Pull around some goofiness and finish in a weird groove, making an airy move or two right or alternately finish on thin holds from directly under the anchor. Either way, the finish is the metal crux of the route.

Good climbing that flows well up to the second bolt from the top.

Location

From C Sharp or B Flat step a few yards left, just left of a crack system.

Protection

Bolted, bolt anchors

Nice moderate; bear-hugging the bulge at the top makes for an interesting finish. Oct 27, 2008

Use a long sling before the airy crux, so you don't deck on the ledge below. This route is really fun! Sep 23, 2009

I used the crack to start and it was decently wet. I can see this being the crux even if it was dry. Aug 15, 2017
