    Recently, a number of climbers bouldering in Whirlpool State Park were approached by Law enforcement and a park ranger and asked to leave the boulders at the Whirlpool Trail. The ranger reminded them that climbing at the park was prohibited and warned them that if they were found climbing there again, they may be subject to a $250 fine.
