Morgan cautions climbers to be discreet. An excellent word!
I've had some success by asking for permission to cross private property.
Parking can be the biggest hassle.
Your milage may vary.
If you are trying to find the best rock do your ground work.
Meet the locals, be polite.
Stay in small groups of two.
Explain before you climb that you will want to come back.
If there is any resistance drop the idea of climbing.
In this State you have to ask for permission,
if you can take a walk, don't blow it by climbing.
Include the locals in the process by showing them pictures
of what you want to come back to try and climb.
If you have spectators, top rope.
(TR just looks like it is safer, to the general public.)
There is lots of rock that Morgan must be keeping track of.
I'm not keeping a book, or adding areas to this data base.
One could but the result would be the closing of many great areas.
If you are interested in seeing some of the rock in south western CT,
get in touch with me.
