Planning to climbing at Roadside or the Zoo? Read this.
Roadside permit: We’re getting a report from the Roadside land owner that a large percentage of people are accessing the cliff without permits. Our access to this area is contingent upon climbers’ respectful behavior and crag stewardship – it’s a wonderful cliff that many of us enjoy, and we'd like to prevent it from being closed off again. Please get a permit for each person who plans to access this cliff. The permits are limited so the owner offsets the impact to this area. If you cannot get a permit, you’ll have to climb somewhere else.
Zoo approach: The new guidebook directs people upstream to cross over a log, but the owner prefers that you avoid accessing the crag this way (and the next edition of the guidebook will have the correct approach). Please access the Zoo climbing from the parking lot.
We really appreciate everyone’s help and compliance with the owner's request. Spread the word!
