Someone installed a gate along the trail to Solar Collector crag!!! What theÖ? On March 20, 2010 the RRGCC installed a gate along the trail to the Solar Collector.

So whatís the deal?

Is the the Solar Collector, Dark Side, or Crossroads closed? Will they be closed? No, as long as climbers continue to pay the mortgage, access is preserved.

Many climbers who visit the Pendergrass-Murray Recreational Preserve (PMRP) donít realize that the RRGCC has to pay a mortgage of $30,000 every year to keep the crags open. In years past the RRGCC has installed kiosks but often climbers walk by without reading the information. The gate was installed to remind (like a kiosk) our visitors that climbing on the PMRP is protected by the ongoing donations of climbers. A sign will soon be installed soon to encourage donations at http://rrgcc.org/. The gate will not be locked and climber funds were not used to purchase materials for this gate.
