Take your time. Do it the Bob way... which seems to be the right way.

You suck Bob. I assume you will be giving free colonoscopies and pelvic exams to make it up to us.

I think most of them are still there, but the rest of torrent really looks nice. It is cool to see what a break in the traffic can do to an area as impacted as torrent was. Plus, Bob done a whole lot of work as well.

PS, Don't forget the donation box if you get one of the parking passes.

I can't post a reply to the original thread so I'll post here.

Is staying at one of the cabins excluded from this access system? i.e. can still climb if a paying guest but not have to snag a climbing/parking pass?

Anyone receiving a code or pass will be allowed to climb (cabin guests also receive a gate code). I came up with the numbers for the online passes after watching the use patterns over the past year and took into account the number of cabin guests who climb.

I just tried the site torrentfallsclimbing.com just to see if passes were given out today (thursday 8/21/08 7:40am). I got this message:

Registration is closed
Registration is open on Thursday,Friday,Saturday
from 0600 to 1430 except for blackout dates.
This is not an Open Date


Did I do something wrong?

Possibly a computer glitch? Did you report this on the torrentfallsclimbing.com comment page?

If there is no Open Date for that day (in this case today) then Torrent is not open for climbing.
