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

The fourth route on the 5.10 wall, between Crazyfingers (5.10c) and the trad line Synchronicity (5.11a). Originally a trad line, this excellent route is now well protected by bolts. Climb through pockets to a crimp crux, then pick one of several variations from the last bolt to the anchors.

Protection

5-6 bolts to anchors

The out right variation I belive is the easiest, with the straight up/dyno variation being the most fun for me(5.11a?). Jun 7, 2007

a little beta for the red point: when you're getting pumped out about half way up or more there is an amazing horizontal hand jam to shake out on Jul 11, 2010
