Warning Access Issue: Access to GFNP (Roadside) REQUIRES a Daily Permit DetailsDrop down

Permit Required Suggest change

***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 Suggest change

This route is a unique masterpiece of finesse and physicality. Start up the vertical face to reach the first ledge with your hands, clip a bolt and press out the first of multiple namesake mantles. Continue up on solid holds placing gear in pockets and horizontals until reaching 2 more bolts higher up and a final mantle to easier terrain that leads to the anchor.

Location Suggest change

The second route to the right of the dihedral (Andromeda Strain) at the far left end of Roadside. Look for a series of three ledges going up the face. The first bolt can be located about 10-15 ft up.

Protection Suggest change

3 bolts plus a small assortment of cams and tricams. Bolted anchors.
