Does anyone know if bouldering at millbrook is legit? Was staring down at all that lovely talus and wondered what was legal?

Some of the talus is Preserve land, some is private and so not legit without the permission of the land owner. It is not at all easy to determine whose land you are on; appropriate parcel maps and a decent GPS unit may be needed for even an approximate answer.

The approach and return are extremely burly. Moreover, the boulders in the talus are, in general, not quite big enough for really good bouldering and the landings are typically gnarly. It's no bouldering mecca, and, by the way, is a nasty place to be when things are wet.

Thanks RG. I don't mind the approach that much not too far from my cabin. Was curious since the osi just aquired more property over there thought some of it would be legit. Looks tempting from the top! Wasn't looking for mecca just some place quiet to check out. Yeah most talus fields are no fun when wet!! Ankle breaker city.

Keith,

It's understandable that you are unclear where the boundary lines are. Your best bet would be to ask Mohonk Preserve to file a complete survey of their lands so that their patrons would know where to go. Unfortunately, the Mohonk Preserve has filed only a handful of surveys with a combined acreage of about 110 acres of their supposed 7000 acres. We will post for you the filed surveys in our main thread. Best of luck.

Thanks AG seems like a tough road to hoe but its worth asking. would be nice if boundaries were clearly marked so as not to tresspass. Just looking for a new place to climb without the masses maybe keep some adventure alive.

Keith,

There is plenty of land that is private with bouldering and climbing, pm me your contact info and I'll see if I can work something out for you.

Actually all the climbing is on private land we just pay day user fees to use it. Thanks for the offer.
