2017 RENDEZVOUS SITE/CLIMBING RULES

As guests of Cal-wood, and to respect the land, trees, and other users/uses of this site, the following rules and regs are to be followed as a condition of your registration (in addition to any posted on-site). Thank you!

Many areas of Cal-wood are rugged, rocky and remote, with no cellphone service and limited accessibility. So,
Report your campsite or general camping/tree boating location, and any changes in camping location (if not staying in the cabins) and daily climbing excursion destination(s) to designated person, or on-site provided form.

Climbing excursions must include at least 2 climbers. Walkie-talkies are available and will be used where needed.
Follow basic/generally-accepted RTC standards and protocols, including:

  • The use of cambium-protecting devices on all dynamic settings
  • Only live tissue for TIP’s/anchors, with at least 6 inches live support
  • First Aid kit with every climbing party
  • Only RTC/arboriculture-certified or recognized equipment, including buckled, approved climbing helmets, on all climbs.
  • Drinking water/emergency food with every climbing party
  • No climbing when dangerous weather (i.e. lightning), site, or tree conditions are present
  • No free climbing
  • Pack out all garbage
  • Use the outhouses found at the three campgrounds, or main lodge. Otherwise, solid waste should be buried no less than 1 foot underground, no less than 200 feet from nearest water, dry ravine or other potential run-off feature, increasing distance with increasing slope.
  • Pruning/dead-wooding – Mountain pine beetle generally fly in late August, and are attracted to fresh sap, so intentional pruning or dead-wooding prohibited.
  • No drunkenness, use of cannabis products or illegal medicinals on premises.
