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

Stiff for the grade, Altered Scale has a nice variety of moves.

Starting on a ledge, pull some hard moves to the first bolt (stick clipping is a good option). Continue on easier ground to a thin section about midway; save some energy for pulling a sequency bulge near the top, then finish to the anchors.

Location

Starts about 10' right of Trouble Clef.

Protection

Seven bolts, bolted anchors.

I had a lot of fun leading this one, but I couldn't stick the crux at the bulge. It felt stiff for a 9+. May 4, 2018
