I went to Yosemite and found that you need to climb in something like blue jeens, lycra does not work very well in chimneys etc. Also, I went to solo double chin 5.6, I climb in order to get a workout. But I got stuck under the second roof. It took me about 20 minutes to figure it out without doing it before I did it before it got dark. And it was not much of a workout. I would have felt better doing a highball boulder problem. So my conclusion is that I wasted my time on double chin, and I should have rope soloed something harder.
The Mohonk Mountain House and the Mohonk Preserve have done a great job protecting the environment thus far, but ... it's all down hill from here http://youtu.be/9AU8fMo8v4k.
