Please remove your route info post. This is from the Farley Ledge page:
Private Property with limited allowed access. Do NOT add routes here. MORE INFO >>>
The climbing is on private land the landowner (not the local climbers) is requesting that climbers do not publish information on the routes at Farley Ledge. The Western Mass Climbers Coalition folks are trying to help assure that the landowner's wishes are respected, and users are requested NOT to post route information on Mountain Project.
Since Farley is all on private land, the owners have the ability to take access away at any time if they feel that overcrowding is happening. And they are sensitive to this overcrowding and watching it.
In order to protect the access that we do have at Farley, we are taking down route information should be taken down in order to respect the landowner's wishes.
The WMCC is working on a longer-term solution for the area, and will make information more readily available so that folks understand the issues and don't feel that access is being restricted simply to keep the area sacred to the locals.
Keeping climbing areas open and conserving the climbing environment
