Parking in the Southern Region

Post by cliftongifford » Fri Feb 03, 2012 2:29 pm

I understand the parking situation is tough during peak season, but in the middle of the winter when you could be the only climbers at any given crag.... is it okay to park right next to the crag at places like Drive-By? I noticed some climbers parked within spitting distance of Drive-By yesterday... Is that because they have exclusive permission? or just because it's permissible this time of year? Thanks.

We were there also. There was a blue subaru parked off to the side. We thought it belonged to a some guys we heard on the other side where the new routes are.

remember homeboy who did the back flip off easy rider and slammed through the tree into the wall? thats your boy who was parked up at drive by today right in front of oil head. from what i gather he explained to everyone around that it was ok due to it being a weekday. pretty sure he just bought a house off of 11 too. yay...

isn't there a gate? but i guess the important point is that now all climbers are to blame. just like deepwater horizon. i want my life back.

There's a gate that hasn't been locked in awhile. Its a pain in the ass to open and close a gate every time you go on your rounds checking wells as an oil worker. If these douche bags think they can park next to the crag, first the gates will close, then we will have access issues. Word.
I've seen it too. I guess if you climb hard and have a wife and small child, you ate entitled to drive up, drop off, and then drive back down. Also saw someone drive up (to Drive By) at end of day to pick up the brahs for a ride out.
Pretty rugged hike downhill you know.

man. it's just that i thought i'd seen some shit and then what i can only understand as some world class political bullshit takes over the whole god damn world.

ok nevermind. but if using the road as an intermittent convenience is cool why not allow it? either we can work with the oil guys or not. is there some legal reasoning that says the land owners are pre epmpted from accessing their land because of a limited surface rights agreement? and btw, when is that set to expire?
what access do climbers need for the closed pmrp crags? top down, bottom up? what 'concerns' of the oil company are being met that climber's access would compromise?

ok, Rick,you asked for some of my concerns. those are a few off the top of my head. god bless you.

apologies. simple explanation is that the individual is connected to the oil company?

As far as access goes - Just look at all the potential for new miles of cliffline that can be developed in the future, I mean the possibilities are endless. There are potentially thousands of new routes that are yet to even be discovered and the potential is for even more. Look ahead to the future.
