Horse Pens 40 is a "LEAVE NO TRACE" park !!
Thanks for your help and cooperation.
Thanks to all of you who have generously donated items to our Gear Recycling Program.
These items help us reduce our costs and keep our prices down. Thanks for your consideration and your generosity.
Horse Pens 40 still needs your old ropes.
Long or short, small or large, thick or thin, we can use them all.
Old carabiners and other hardware that are taken out-of-service can be used in non-critical applications
We especially need STATIC LINE. Please donate your retired climbing (or
any other) ropes or cord to HP40 for utility and other uses around the park. We use these ropes for tying down, binding, pulling
trees or fencing, horse tack, etc. We can use any lengths and sizes. Also any other gear, webbing, tarps, containers,
cords, etc. that we might be able to use. We do not use these items for any critical purposes, where
a failure would cause injury.
Recycling these still usable items in a non-critical way can save the park a considerable amount
of money, helping us keep our prices low, as well as helping preserve scarce and valuable natural resources. We appreciate
it greatly, and will put these items to good use.
We also gladly accept your still useable pressurized fuel cylinders, and your unused Coleman
fuel, etc. In addition to making your trip home much safer, donating these items
also helps your fellow boulderers, and saves the fuel from being wasted. (HP40 provides this fuel for free to boulderers
to be used in our rental lanterns for night climbing.)
Drop them at the Country Store on your next visit! We thank you very much!!
Some tips for our bouldering guests:
> > Night bouldering is FREE for registered campers.
>> NIGHT BOULDERING WITHOUT CAMPING IS
ALSO AVAILABLE <<
Registered Campers may boulder at night for NO EXTRA CHARGE with no special permission necessary.
Night bouldering permit -- (without camping) -- = $8.00 per person
For day users who already paid day fee ($8.00) -- = + $3.00 per person (Until 2AM without camping)
Day Users must come into the office at sundown to register and pay for night bouldering. Night bouldering
permission good from Sundown til 2am (later by approval only).
Registered Campers may boulder 24 hours a day with no special permission needed.
ALSO NOTE: HP40 PRICES REQUIRE PAYMENT IN CASH -- All HP40 prices reflect a 10% discount that
applies to payments made with CASH ONLY and can not be obtained through any other means of payment.
Add 10% to all HP40 prices if
paying with any method other than cash. WE DO NOT ACCEPT CHECKS!
DO NOT DEPEND ON OUR CREDIT CARD MACHINE
TO WORK !
Our credit card machine is often unusable
due to our notoriously unreliable antiquated landline phone service (We are the very last phone line in our area code,
and it is a very long and tiny copper wire that goes back to the civilized world from here.)
Anyway, it is a 10 mile
round trip to an ATM. Be smart and bring enough cash to get you through just in case.
To avoid any problems and to get the best prices,
PLEASE BRING CASH ! !
And please remember:
Bouldering is the only type of climbing permitted at HP40.
No ropes, anchors, or 'highballing' is allowed.
Bouldering can be dangerous, and injuries are always possible. Please be careful!!
PROPER CRASH PADS and SPOTTERS are ALWAYS REQUIRED at HP40.
Please climb safely whenever and wherever you climb.
Horse Pens 40 and the Schultz Family can assume no responsiblity for your safety, but we do still care about
