The time honored buildering activity used to be a prominent part of campus life. Not the same, but fun nonetheless.
I quess the gunks are as close as anything else to you. How about catching rides with the outing club? I assume you are at Cornell, and see them in the West Trapps lot quite often.

Is this what you are looking for? It's a multi-page PDF, with one page for each section of the park, with all (or nearly all) of the cliffs labeled.

Also, you might want to check out this cool use of Google maps. This isn't anything new, and is described on the book web site.

Wow! The pdf is great. It'll be put to good use this weekend...thanks!

Aya,

While it's been my impression for most of the summer that the new guide has helped spread people out, I had an experience of unprecedented crowding one day earlier this season at Spider's Web (something like 14 people) and then I saw it again this Sunday at Moss Cliff. Don Mellor was one of about 9-10 people - and one dog - who showed up. And while I don't have much experience at that crag, he said it was the greatest number of people there that he'd ever seen. Sure was more than the two others I'd seen on a previous trip.

But those were just two days. Most of the rest of the year, it's been pretty quite where we've climbed, and I agree that exploring a wider variety of areas has likely contributed to those solitary days (and the discovery of some very good lines.) My thanks to Jim and Jeremy.

Those region maps are great. (So is the whole guidebook.)

I'm thinking HALO...

I mean really... how else would a dog get there?

We took a dog up Pegasus in April. Just threw it into a pack...seemed no worse for the wear. I suppose this won't work with every dog, though.

So, speaking of climbs which fell down, has anyone done the new cracks that are where Green Beer used to be? I feel like the left one in the corner (which finishes on the remainder of Green Beer) has to have been done.

Speaking of pegasus - I've heard on one of your posts (somewhere) that the climb had some serious rockfall last winter. How much harder is it now?

Thanks!

My recollection is that it's in the .9 range, with the poor gear. Crimpy too.
