Hope you're having a good summer and enjoying the cooler temps. We wanted to pass along some info about parking at Rumney from the USFS:
RUMNEY ROCKS CLIMBING AREA PARKING CLOSED TEMPORARILY FOR CONSTRUCTION
The parking lot that accesses “Parking Lot Wall”, “Meadows”, and “Connector Trail” at Rumney Rocks Climbing Area will be closed mid-week days beginning on Wednesday August 14th, and ending Thursday August 22nd, to accommodate the construction of a new concrete toilet building and demolition of the existing building. The new building will be constructed using Recreation Fee funds, and will replace the existing toilet building that has deteriorated after years of heavy use and exposure to the elements.
The parking area will open on weekends but remain closed mid-week until installation of a new toilet building and associated groundwork is completed. The expected completion date is August 22. Parking and foot traffic through the parking lot is prohibited during this time to ensure visitor safety and adequate working space for the contractors and their equipment.
Due to construction activity and heavy equipment in the parking area, foot traffic will be routed around the perimeter of the parking lot to facilitate climber access to the “Connector Trail” “Meadows” and “Main-wall”. The alternative hiking route to the crags will be clearly
signed. Climbers are encouraged to park at the American Alpine Club parking area, Main Wall and Buffalo Pit access points during this time.
