I went to Sunset Rock in Milton yesterday for the first time in a while and saw 2 "new" no climbing signs. I was and am heart broken. How long has the ban been in effect? Does anyone know the reason for the closure? I drove all the way to the "cliff" and had my shoes on and pad set up before I saw the signs so I couldn't resist the temptation to do a few problems as it had been ages since I last climbed. So I do a few of the problems and am working the mantle at the far south end when a COP pulls up! Ive been to that place many many times over the years and NEVER even saw a cop, let alone had them pull over and talk to me. He asked me to move my car out of the no parking area and gave me a lecture about climbing by myself. No ticket thankfully. What horrible experience. I went out to enjoy the afternoon, keeping out of trouble and getting some healthy exercise. I wasnt bothering anyone or getting in anyone's way and I get hassled by cops with nothing better to do. Whats going on??? Whats with all the hasles at this little cliff?

You can find out a lot of the gory details here:

Although I've never climbed there, I can sympathize with your frustration. I hope it gets worked out to everyone's benefit.
