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.
DescriptionStiff 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.
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.
