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

Description 

Starts from the top of a large boulder. Climb the face right of an arete to a roof, then move to the left face and finish at a ledge.

Location 

Right end of 5.10 Wall, just left of Psycho Killer.

Protection 

4 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor

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.

Good warm-up route. Be sure to extend the first two draws, or be ready for some serious rope drag.
