Access to GFNP (Roadside) REQUIRES a Daily Permit Details
Please DO NOT climb at GFNP (Roadside) without a daily permit per climber in the group. After a long closure, access to Roadside was made possible again in March 2015 under the name Graining Fork Nature Preserve. This access is contingent upon climbers being good stewards and obtaining a daily permit via the GFNP website.grainingfork.org/ For the sake of the access privilege it is imperative that climbers follow this rule and obtain the daily permit.
DescriptionA steep climb with mostly good holds, but little good rest. None of the moves are particularly hard, but the route is pumpy, making the clips up top harder than the other two routes, but perhaps this is the best warm-up, for lack of hard moves down low.
LocationAfter the approach to Roadside Wall, stay right and as soon as you come under a bulge and into the main wall amphitheatre, you will see 3 sport routes in close proximity on a bulging wall to your left. Crazy Fingers is the right-most of the three fully bolted routes and can be distinguished by the larger pockets, compared to AWOL, which has more edges, and Dragonslayer, which has 2 monos before the 2nd bolt.
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.
