there was a pretty good one on the original start of Mobey Grape... someone rode down a big block....

I've climbed a good bit on cannon and a little at the Gunks... I see more dangerous rock on Cannon and more dangerous people at the Gunks...

It is Cannon's dangerous reputation that keeps people smart up there which keeps them safe... May 8, 2014

My comment was a bit tongue-in-cheek. I climb a fair bit in both places. I have witnessed rockfall, some it pretty substantial, on Cannon a number of times. Never at the Gunks. Nevertheless the only time I have gone for a ride due to loose rock was at the Gunks. I leaned back off a seemingly very solid large block I had just pulled down on under the roof on pitch two of Nurse's Aid for a photo from above by my partner. Off we went, the block and I. To quote Nick Goldsmith -

Climb like a kitty, pull down not out and say your prayers. May 9, 2014

it's all good, just wanted to make sure people new to cannon didn't let down their guard...
we used to think rumney was safe from rock fall now it seems that nowhere is safe... constant vigilance! :) May 9, 2014
