Iread the post over there and it seems rather absurd. The people who are claiming that it is "locals only club" are just plain lazy. I climbed there before I became a local. We just asked about that amazing looking cliff out there behind the steel bridge, and foun dout what it was. The next weekend, we wandered up the High Peterskill trail and fumbled aroun duntil we found a nice line to try. And yes, we toproped it because we sucked back then. Actually we still do suck, but I digress.
As far as the place not being adventure anymore? That's hooey too. 90% of the people who actually do climb there climb 2% of the routes. There is excellent climbing, even at moderate levels, that is clean, and free of chalk and fixed gear.
Having all of that documented takes nothing away from people who want everything mapped out for them. But it destroys the adventure for people who want to forge their own path. I have learned a lot about Lost City over the past 15 years, and every bit of it I have learned by wandering around out there, looking up, saying holy shit what's that!, tyring it, getting my ass handed to me, then trying it again. Sometimes I ask certain people who may know, sometimes I don't. It's my perogative. If you want documentation, go climb in the Trapps, The Nears, or.....egaads...Millbrook!
