Can anyone tell me what climbs are in the closed area (no tresspassing) of the Nears? From which route to which? How much hassle is it to get to the other side of the closed area going along the top of the cliff and then down?

Thanks,
Brian

The closed area goes from Eenie Meenie about 200 feet to around Nazgul.

"Hassles" are in the eye of the beholder, so there is no way to answer that question. It is no big deal to walk along the top and go down Smede's Cove, especially if your goal is the routes at the left end of the Nears. A bit more work returning back up Smede's, especially if you are climbing just left of Nazgul and have to backtrack to the left end and then go up.

I think the Preserve needs to purchase more land.
