Rock climbing has inherent risks and climbers assume complete responsibility for their own safety. The National Park Service does not maintain fixed anchors. We recommend that you climb with a partner and wear a helmet.
Cell phone service is patchy and unreliable in much of the park. One emergency-only phone is attached to the bathroom in the Intersection Rock parking area next to Hidden Valley Campground. A second emergency-only phone is located at the ranger station at Indian Cove. Assistance is available at entrance stations and visitor centers, when they are open.
Please report all climbing related injuries to park dispatch at 909-383-5651, even those that do not require assistance.
