The property which contains the cul-de-sac has recently been sold and the new owner does not want anyone on his property. Please hold off on climbing there or at the very least, park on the pavement and be very discreet. If asked to leave, please do. There is also a potential access problem with the rocks themselves, they are part of a parcel that a developer wants to put houses on (not near the rocks, but part of the same land)
If you would like to help with access negotiations, please contact me.

Just some info on the access. If you go up Hillside road almost to the end, right at where there are still houses on both sides of the street (before the lone house and farm). You can pull off the road there. I talked with the homeowner and they have no problem if anyone parks their, they only ask that you stop by and let them know why youre there. As for the cul de sac, it sure is posted now. We hike up the pipeline trail and came down from the top, which is much rougher than the cul de sac for sure. Had been looking for an area to top-rope, but found very little worthwhile that was possible to TR.

To avoid problems with the cul-de-sac parking, currently the best approach is from the south. Take the Fishing Creek exit of 322. Go northeast (away from the river) on Fishing Creek Valley Road and almost immediately turn left onto Cemetery Rd. Follow this to the end (not into the private drive), pull off to the side. Walk along the tracks north (10 minute walk to South Buttress).
