Access to GFNP (Roadside) REQUIRES a Daily Permit MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Stiff 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.

Location 

Starts about 10' right of Trouble Clef.

Protection 

Seven bolts, bolted 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.
