Comments: Love the crux on this!!!!!!!!

I think the Gunks Select Guidebook has it at a 5.7. It sucks for short people. My bro being shorter than I (I am only 5'9") always had trouble reaching up for a good hold.

Comments: Has anyone ever seen the frog's head? I have done it twice in the past and never saw it. I think there is reference to it in the Gunks Select guidebook put out by Dick Williams.

Comments: This can often be wet and stay wet for a little while after rain.
Fun route though.

Comments: Mark... No offense taken. I think discussions such as this bring us all to greater understandings. We should realize that no matter how well prepared a rescue team is or even one of us for that matter, things can happen (Murphy's law). So, the rescuers did indeed put their lives on the line. I never said a rescue team wouldn't go anywhere to rescue someone. I think we have all witnessed (unfortunately) how far these teams will go to rescue people often putting themselves @ great peril.

Comments: I had to pick up the Climbing gear review to see what the fuss was about. Pretty lame compared to years past when the mag was fat with all kinds of gear and real reviews.

Comments: According to local news (reliable or not) he was just "scrambling" up rock. I have seen many people (non-climbers I am guessing) scrambling or as the media call it "climbing" in places where they shouldn't be (no gear). There are quite a few "ramps" where one can go; One such place, 'TOURIST trap gully." A fairly easy "scramble" for some of us to get to climbs on that face, but the search and rescue teams have placed huge eyebolts in order to facilitate easier extrication of people who... more >>

Comments: Feel bad for this guy, his family, and friends, but when they label people like this "climbers" as they did on the local news here it makes the rest of us look bad and then you have people thinking "hey maybe we should ban climbing altogether in the park?"
I don't climb there anymore, but when I did I saw A LOT of people scrambling up the rocks where they had no business being and the staff they had roving around their said nothing. Maybe if they enforced the fines, it might make people take a ... more >>

Comments: That's good to hear. I do miss lunch on the GT ledge. Can't believe they rap anchors and bolts there. Did they put anchors on the rap from Madame G's? If I remember that was a free hanging rap. That was a blast!! (Although it doesn't surprise me. I used to teach climbing in a gym and would be scared to see people I taught how to tie in and belay a week or so later there w/ shiny new gear!!!)
I miss the Gunks grease after a day of climbing there. One of these days I'll make it back there and back... more >>

Comments: I am from NY and used to climb @ the Gunks all the time. How crazy is it now? Before I left NY they had started enforcing all kinds of rules it was also insanely busy; like being @ a gym. I saw many a squabble over who was next on line for certain classics like High E, but sure do miss the climbing there.
