It bear to other eyes -

and you don’t need any money to repel and climb the cliffs at Point Defiance in Tacoma, WA.    Ran across these “rogue” climbers and asked them if it was legal.  “It is if we don’t see a sign,”  they said.   The group of 5 or so enjoyed the drop-off until sundown with a few brave spectators such as myself hanging off to look over the precarious ledge.   One guy offered to secure me so I could really lean over.  I refused and then realized I was just hanging off of a limb.  Next time, I’ll trust them and not the tree.
