If you didn't already know, Dickie Barre has been proposed as a possible new area to be opened for climbing in Minnewaska.
There will be a public hearing on Thursday, Oct. 22 regarding this and other items on the park's Master Plan Draft. http://www.nysparks.state.ny.us/newsroom/press-releases/release.aspx?r=756
For your perusal, The Master Plan http://www.nysparks.state.ny.us/inside-our-agency/public-documents.aspx
Is there only 30 routes possible up there, as the Plan says?
Perhaps we could also rally the troops to help with the trail construction and other work that needs to be done in preparation for climbing, now that the Park's manpower has been cut.
