That's because it was the troll. No worries. It is locked/deleted again. Just quit feeding it.

Having climbed both of these places I can say that NC in general is way better.

PS. Don't forget about naked people climbing The Dangler too. It seems to be a pretty strong tradition at the Gunks

The Gunks suck and are filled with too many downstate "climbers" and and New Jersey-ites anyway. Stay the hell away. Everyone should go climb at Eldo and Eldo only because it's clearly the best climbing crag in the country. Simon Thompson

Both places suck for one reason: the egos are unreal. Give me a pristine mountain with no humans any day over either. The Stoned Master

I haven't been to either and I don't really care. ^This is why^. I can't wait to go back to the Organ Mountains.
