Comments: On November 12th, the Access Fund is sponsoring a work party at Jailhouse to close the current trail approach to the cliff (from the bridge) and install gates, fencing, and parking via the new approach (from a gate higher on O'Byrnes Ferry Road). Please come help us; we have a lot to do in one day. Also, from that point on, the old approach will be closed, and we will drive through the gate and park at a new parking area.

We all get to climb out there because of the kindness and generosity of the owners, and we really... more >>

Comments: Two announcements:
Keen footwear has just reopened their program to give Unlock Jailhouse $10 for every old rope climbers donate to any Bay Area climbing gym (Touchstone or Planet Granite now). Take an old rope (or five) to the February 9th event, and the Access Fund benefits.

Also, starting today, and running through February 15th, Planet Granite is matching your donation. Donate at: accessfund.org/jailhouse

Hope you can make it; this will be a rocking show.
