Despite the confusing sign in the photo, climbing isn't forbidden at Moon Hill at the moment (check if you can before you go, I suppose this can always change). There is a 10RMB (about $1.50) charge to enter the Moon Hill park, but there's a pretty easy way around it, just ask a climber once you get to Yangshuo. There is, however, a pending toll-gate opening (rumored date is Oct 1) that could charge considerably more - 80RMB - just to drive/bike into the larger scenic area where quite a few of Yangshuo's best crag's are, including Moon Hill, Twin Gate, Banyan Tree, Wine Bottle (which already has an issue with charging climbers), and more. It remains to be seen exactly what will happen: when, how much will the charge, will there be special accomodation for climbers, etc.
For up-to-date info on Yangshuo access issues (and just area info in general), try the Yangshuo Access Initiative website: yangshuoaccess.org.

|Charge at Moon Hill is 15 Yuan now you can ditch around but just pay it the first time you go then ditch around if you return. We didn't ask about climbing just went up and did. We heard no mention of not being able to climb. It is either funny or annoying that as you pull to the anchors on a climb a Chinese lady may yell "Hello, climber. Water, soda, beer." It was funny the first time; annoying by the fifth time. No signs of a toll booth other commenter speaks of.|

As of right now, the toll booth does not exist, but you will notice a large arch over the road shortly before you get to Moon Hill which will be the entrance to the "park". When this actually happens is still unknown. Turning the area into a "park" would really be depressing since the Chinese definition of "park" includes amusement rides and fee's to do everything.
Also, Yangshuo Access Initiative is a dead group at this point.
