Is it finally opening today? If so thanks, can't wait to climb some old faves again.

Climbing was GREAT there this morning. Still no crowds yet and everything looks almost - pristine. Really missed the old routes. AWOL was so awesome and Roadside Attraction never felt better. Hoping to come back down a couple time this week.

There is so much sarcasm involved with that crag, I can not take any of this seriously. Where is the punchline?

The zoo must have been at capacity this weekend. Must have been 20 or so cars in that lot
How you compare may not be as important as to whom you are compared

Somehow that makes me sad... like we traded a 5-star crag for a 2.5-star one. Maybe I'll go there again someday and give it another chance.

Roadside is private property. We never owned it to start, so we had nothing to trade. So is the Zoo for that matter. I like the 11's at the zoo.

Keen insight, professor. My point is just that quality standards have been on a steady decline in these parts for a while now... "traded" was obviously not the best word.

Yes, it does suck. But if I bought it I really don' think I would want every gumball in the world climbing on it. Too bad they just couldn't say that.

Can the Zoo handle the increased traffic? Seems every year the trail along the base connecting the slab to the amphitheater gets narrower as mossy rooty chunks fall away under climber feet...

Of course not if we don't maintain it... which thus far we have not (mostly because trailwork etc. in that region were mostly focused on Roadside and Torrent until the last few years... let's face it the Zoo was kind of a backwater chosspile until the "Graining Fork Nature Preserve" shit the bed)

Erosion at the Zoo? Why not just send a couple people up there during the Roadside Trail Days?

Oh wait, that's right.
