As long as i've been climbing there, Ive known from reading here and else where that driving your truck or whatever rig up into the quarry was a big NO-NO that could jeopardize access... Of course we have no say what the locals do ( dirt bikes, buggies ect) ... but as climbers, I know we have a responsibility here. Mainly the question is, does this still hold true or have the "the times they have a' changed" ? LOL.

I ask because more and more, I see people using the cliff for base jumping and climbing, pull right up like it ain't no thang. I figured I would kindly update myself before I get all up on my high horse and "update them"

Gracias

Still a no-no. As far as the base jumper go, it appears that they are willing to participate in activities that may jeapordize access. (streaking, bonfires, etc.) Somebody needs to talk to them, that's for sure.

I understand that the quarry is now a popular free climbing crag. I do aid climb there still as well as free climb. It is not a pristine place; still used as a dump. Who owns the quarry? Who determines what activities are "allowed" at the quarry? Who determines what is a "no-no" at the quarry?

Ryan on the Sharks Fin wishing he was on Mt. Whiteny.

If you want to keep you vehicle D&D free I would highly suggest keeping it on the street.

there's issues between the city and the owner of the quarry I hear. those folks I talked to that basejump apparently call up cops and see if anything's decided on property yet and then make a bold yet informed decision to go in there and jump. feel free to chat with them... I wouldn't get up on my high horse as they might know more about the property's situation than you... but they could've been bluffing me... you never know. I believe the Jurupa Valley Sheriff's Station located at 7477 Mission Blvd in Riverside is better informed about the current issues at quarry.

Why would I want to keep my vehicle dungeons and dragons free? I like dragons.

I was wondering this as well!
I also have seen the base jumpers at the Qarry and wondered why they thought it was cool to roll right up to the base of the crag and set up their 'chutes while wearing pajamas!

The no vehicle policy is a County ordinance against driving off established roads. The Sherrifs come often during the year and write citations to those that have driven in here and elsewhere.

The BASE jumpers and dirt bikers that drive into the Quarry property risk these citations.
