Your profile says you have only been climbing for a few months. The climbing area has been there quite a while I would guess. I reckon if it ain't broke, don't fix it. But it's your call.

just ask around, the people who can answer that question best are the people who use the area. maybe they like it the way it is.
plus they would have any info you could need about the area.

Well if you have this supposedly greatest sport routes in the state, why would you want it publically anounced. If you already know people that can climb with you all "publicly announcing" it would just make it really crowded. Only reason i see wanting it to be public is to meet other climbers.

chill orngave. a good point was made. if access is sketchy, don't publicize it. anough areas have been closed. many semi-open areas are only open because of low profiles. i haven't checked your profile or know anythin about you, but if you are relatively new to the area(like less than 3 years), let it lie. not everything has to be the next yosemite.

It's your call. I would say that if it is privately owned, then I would keep it secret until you talked with some of the experienced climbers that climb there. Also, you may try the place out and not tell others of the place so you can reap the benefits of a secluded area where you can climb in peace

If your aim is to find out about it while keeping it private, then spend as much time as you can at said area and ask a local.

The other option as I see it is to hope that one of those locals reads this thread and privately contacts you through email or something.

Regardless, grab a friend you trust and go climbing. It's a sport area, right? So falls are, theoretically (safe bolts), not a big issue. Go out and jump on the easiest looking routes and work your way up. In this manner, the worst that can happen is you'll bring some adventure back into climbing. What more could you ask for?

Seclusion, good pro, and adventure. Wish I was the one posting this topic!
