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.
DescriptionThis is a short but stout route for the grade. Start in the corner and traverse along a low horizontal crack to reach the point where you can pull the overhang. Reach out to the bomber hand jam and finger lock and scrape your way to a stance. Follow to the anchors trending to the left. The footholds needed to pull the overhang may be wet and are extremely slippery. Very intense.
ProtectionPretty much any gear from .33" to 1.5" will suffice. Plenty of gear placements if you can place them. Chain anchors.
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.
