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.


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.


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.


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