LRC/Stone Fort Climbers
Beginning Sunday March 1, 2009, climber protocol for visiting LRC/Stone Fort will be updated—New signage is now in place at the Montlake climber parking lot that supports these changes.
Montlake will institute a fee of $3 for parking and all climbers will be required to 'sign-in' at the clubhouse before entering the boulderfield.
Climbers will still follow the protocol for registration on-line. The climber registration limit will be kept to 35 climbers/day, but the parking limit has been increased to 25 cars/day.
As an example:
1. A climber planning to visit Stone Fort/LRC will go to the SCC website, click on LRC/Stone Fort Access, and download a climbing/parking pass as they do currently.
2. The climber will drive to the Montlake clubhouse, park in the designated climber parking area, place the upper portion of their parking pass in the driver side dashboard, and take the bottom portion in to the clubhouse.
3. The climber will present the bottom portion of the parking pass to the clubhouse manager, sign-in and pay the $5 fee for parking. The climber will also be required to include the License Tag Number of their vehicle.
4. The climber can then enter the boulderfield.
Occasionally (less than 10 days/year), the clubhouse closes due to holiday or inclement weather. There will be a climber kiosk placed next to the clubhouse door with an envelope for climber/parkers to place their sign-in information and $5 parking fee. The envelope will then be placed in to a dropbox on the kiosk.
If a clubhouse manager is not available or the clubhouse is simply closed, climbers are requested to follow the protocol as above. It's in the best interest of the climber/parker to bring the payment in the form of cash just in case the clubhouse is closed.
The above changes are being made in Montlake's continuing effort to support 'limited climbing access.' Protecting and maintaining the property is very important to Montlake and also very important in general to climbing access. Montlake and the SCC want to be sure that climbers continue to support their own access by creating a more formal system for visiting the property.
Visitors to the boulderfield that fail to follow all of the rules above will risk having an immobilizing boot placed on their vehicle. A $50 fee will be required to remove the boot.
We ask that everyone do their best to pass along the new protocol to everyone that visits the area.
Please do your best to support the decision that Montlake is making. Ultimately, the changes support our access to this fantastic boulderfield and helps control our impact to the area.
Very special thanks to everyone who has followed the rules to Stone Fort/LRC over the past six years. Your efforts have been the key to access for the entire climbing community.
Beginning fall 2009, Montlake has agreed to increase the parking limit for climbers thru the fall/winter months between October 1 and April 1 to 40 cars from the current 20. The climber limit will be eliminated during those months.
Please continue to visit the Southeastern Climbers' Coalition website for access updates to all crags and boulderfields throughout the southeast. seclimbers.org

|The climbing fee has been changed to $3 and no parking fee/car registration. Clubhouse facilities are open to climbers, but any boulders facing the golf courses are still closed.|

|$5 fee for climbing now. If you park up the road, expect a warning and a subsequent tow and threat of flattened tires for repeat offenders.|
