Randy Vogel recently updated mOthEr rOck with the latest news. “I spoke to one of owner several weeks ago. He has been unable to put together a plan that will allow him to charge for climbing, yet avoid liability. He isexploring several different ideas, but nothing is certain.”Meanwhile, there are plenty of places to climb, so don’t crash the place and encouragethe owners of the property to continue with their outrageous plans to charge for climbing.As Randy said, “The more time the area is closed and the owners realize that nobody isrushing forward to shower them with money to save this area, the better. As fun as thearea is, it is really not that important of an area regionally. When more moderate routesare put up at New Jack City, most attention will shift to it.” Plus, there are many climbsstill open in the High Desert Area that do not lie on private property. And a few milesaway lies Margaritaville, with even more routes than High Desert… NEW GUIDEBOOK AVAILABLEmOthEr rOck Press recently released “The Best of mOthEr rOck, Volume 1
