There is more people soloing at the Gunks than you think …
When people witness a rock fall, they think it's a freak accident. After the rock hits the ground people just forget about it and go back to what they were doing, and the rock, he just sits there. But the truth is that it happens all the time, I have witnessed literally hundreds of rocks fall off the cliff.
I wish I watched all these rocks, how mental block rolled around into the place where you can now climb stupid crack vertically. Did it happen so perceptually slow people could not see it, or did it happen fast? The Trapps sit on shale, you can see that right away if you go over to the Nears. That means all the rocks you see on the ground are rocks that have fallen and rolled off the cliff at some point. Anyone who puts up a new route is going to have to deal with loose rocks.
But that's not the only danger. Without warning here you have people on bikes with dogs running behind them and people falling out of the sky. What happens if your toddler falls over the edge of the carriage road onto his head in the confusion? Will he break his head or will he break his back or will he break his neck?, who knows. You would have to deal with being potentially charged with endangering the welfare of a minor. Ten feet is a long way to fall head first without a rope. Stoopid and company would be better understood if they posted something about this.
Some people believe in getting a small hard hat and the toddler leash. I say instead, go home and buy a sand box and some sand, your kids will never know the difference. Those are the size rocks your kids want to be playing with anyway.
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.
