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.
DescriptionStart 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.
Location10 feet to the right of the ultra classic "The Return of Chris Snyder". Second route past the huge amphitheater.
Protection10 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.
