Quote: I can only think of a few minor exceptions where climbing is not allowed on state land Mike.
State Forest Preserve perhaps. But this land is destined to end up in PIPC/Minne type control. And I'm sure you remember Bernadette Castro (NYS Parks Commissioner) crowing how Peters Kill represented the first time that climbing was allowed in NYS parks.
Yes, I'm being semantic - we all climb all over the state, on state land. That is how it should be. But I don't see that in the Awosting future, unfortunately.
