South Hardscrabble still Closed

On December 6, 2017, in News, by SoCoCRAG

South Hardscrabble Road is closed indefinitely. Spoke with the USFS, they said the erosion after the Junkins Fire creates a situation that makes FS Road 386 dangerous to travel. If you want to climb at Ego’s Nest, Scene of the Crime, or Isabella’s Tierra you need to bike or hike from the closure.
