Royal Robbins Adventure | Permits, smerits!

I like to think of myself as a professional cat herder. At the moment I'm dealing with some pretty darned feral ones, the US Forestry Service. The production team has been attempting to get permits for the Sierra Nevada Forest for several weeks. Come to find out there is only one person in all of California that handles public use permits. And she has been non-communicative and now is on vacation. The GM from Southern Yosemite Mountain Guides (SYMG) and I went to the Ranger Station to see if we could make some progress. We met a very helpful Ranger, Henry, he has rattled the supervisor and the supervisor's supervisor chain to see if we could get some movement.

Next stop, a road trip to Clovis with permit application, certificate of insurance and some gumption.

Stay tuned...
