Why is information and access to areas such as Sex Wall kept on the down low so much. Is access to those areas enforced that strictly by Norfolk and Southern....

If so, the Access Fund could possibly lend us, PA climbers a hand.... possibly?!

Id like to help answer your question but Iv never climbed in the areas you speak of Im from northeastern Pa and always had plenty of climbing nearby. Maby you could try some climbing related websites based in Philadelphia. Those people down there have a fairly strong climbing community and may be able to answer your questions. Also check the Pa section here on RC.com and possibly message some of those who have contributed there recently. Try rwaltermeyer hes been active on the site recently.

The climbing in this area is restricted pretty roughly. Last year a number of climbers were fined a hefty amount and had their gear taken away at the site by Safe Harbour. This is such an easily accessed area by car that the individuals who live on the dirt road have called police about trespassing. The site at Sex-Wall on the other hand is much less easily accessable and difficult enough to find that there hasn't been much of a rucous raised about the trespassing. The real deal is the stinking problem with the railroad tracks. If it wasn't for this, it would be totally open for use. Oh well.
