Signs to warn climbers of danger approved to be put on Grandad Bluff

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — Signs warning people of the dangers of climbing the bluffs will be making their way onto Grandad Bluff.  The signs not only warn climbers, but they also protect the city against liability if a climber were to get hurt. The park board voted in favor of installing the signs.

“A request to install signage within the quarry area of Grandad Bluff, to make people more aware of the dangers that exist in that area,” said Leah Burns, outdoor recreations coordinator.

The signs will say things like, ‘climb at your own risk.’ There will also be signs for areas that the city does not want people exploring.
