Despite the rash of sh:t I got last time I brought it up, I will again express my displeasure with people posting recent photos of illegal climbing AT SKYTOP.

You are doing the climbing community a disservice.

Flame away.

Mike, these are photos of legal climbing (overnight at the Mountain House, guided by Alpine Endeavors), though there's no way you could have known. Whether posting photos of legal climbing at a restricted area encourages illegal climbing is, I suppose, debatable. (For what it's worth, there is a photo of climbers on Strawberry Yogurt in The Alpinist 21, so the magazine editors seemed to think it was OK.)

And yes, it's A Pilgrim's Progress.

Ah yes, earlier this week, with Joe, I see. Well in that case I'm glad you were able to get out there and enjoy these routes.

(See, the "new policy" at ST isn't all evil.)

Mmm...good egg! ;\)

Well, I could have been clear from the start--but that wouldn't have been as much fun, as it would have given away the routes for those who know the crag. Have to say that it felt like a real treat to be out there at all. While I understand the complaints about the MMH policy, it's certainly better than having it closed entirely, IMO. (Was lucky to get a gorgeous day, too.)

One more (probably way easy for Mike), with the emphasis of my view that people should not climb at Skytop except in accordance with the restrictions set by the Mohonk Mountain House.
