I went up to Lucerne Limestone for the first time a few weeks ago, and what looked like a brand new fence and gate was up just before the parking area under the cliffs. It had no trespassing signs, and both the roads to the left and right were marked private. We just went on up to NJC and dealt with the wind.

Anybody know what the scoop is?

*2nd try to get this linked to the area properly*

When I was there last I noticed two things:

#1: The fence by the parking is around the small quarrying area at the base, but does not extend up to the cliff itself. I climbed there w/o any problems not too long ago and well after the fence was put up. You never have to cross it.. Just walk around it.

#2: Don't go "left" but go right at the "T". Turn right at the small quarry. After turning right, about 200 yards down on the left, a small road will open up. Turn left and heads toward the boulder at the base of the hill. Park next to the boulder.

From there it is an easy hike up to the Moderate Wall, and then you can traverse left along the base of the wall to get to the other climbs.

I have discussed Lucerne with BLM rangers and they assured me it was on BLM land. If the main access ever gets cut off from those roads, there is another set of roads that lead to to the cliff coming in from the 247. They are pretty easy to find as well as you can just drive out from the crag by continuing east after climbing. There is a major dirt road that basically cuts almost due east heading around the north end of the dry lake.

Hopefully that helps!
