Access Issue: Access to GFNP (Roadside) REQUIRES a Daily Permit Details


Start off the ground with a few tricky moves to get established on the wall. Continue up easy moves to a large ledge with a roof above. Warning this ledge may be sandy making this section surprisingly difficult. Pull the roof and head up the steep wall above. Most of the holds are huge and bomber but many are underclings and the climbing can get pumpy. Persevere past a crux and hang on for the easier run to the anchors.


10 feet to the right of the ultra classic "The Return of Chris Snyder". Second route past the huge amphitheater.


10 bolts to Anchors, be careful with the swing when cleaning. Probably best to tram off the first 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.
