gate at solar collector/darkside entrance

Post by sendit » Mon Mar 22, 2010 5:24 pm

In case anyone was confused like I was, the RRGCC posted a note about the newly installed gate at solar http://rrgcc.org/access/gate-at-solar-collector/
I think the idea is a pretty good one, but I must admit not really getting it until I saw the above link.
all you haters die slow.

I'll have a sign made this week to make it more clear when you see the gate.
Sorry I did not have it ready for installation last weekend. Thanks to everyone who helped!

FYI: It was Rick Bost's idea and he paid for the gate itself, thanks rick!!.

exactly how much money did the CC pay for the PMRP? Honest question...

In 2004, when more than 700-acres* of prime climbing land came available to the market, the RRGCC moved quickly to seize the opportunity to secure access. Negotiating with the Murray family, the Coalition and the Murray's settled on a value of $325 per acre for the 700-acres of deeded land. To finance the purchase, the RRGCC worked out a owner-financed mortage of 8% a year for 10 years. With a few maintaince costs, the final yearly costs translate to nearly $30,000 per year (for a more detailed look, check out the PMRP Financials ta).

*Note - It wasn't until after the purchase that it was determined that actually 750-acres were deeded.

The link to "PRMP Financials tab" seems to be broken - but with some simple math, the property was $243,750 + interest.

It seems to me that erecting a gate seems a little coercive. Whats the deal wit you guys and gates anyway? I thought that the CC was an organization dedicated to preserving climber access by opening doors. Do you have to resort to heavy-handed tactics of threatening closure?
