    This is a nature preserve and the landowners do not allow climbing. Do not climb there. See the main Central Sandstone page to link to the Quincy Preserve web site. Jonathan Williams

    Wow. That would be great (provided the climbing ban goes away too). Good catch Tony.

    It looks like the DNR and the Nature Conservancy now are joint owners of Quincy Preserve. It's now got State Natural Area designation and no climbing is allowed still.
