If the crowd out there yesterday is any indication, the just-opened Dickie Barre cliff at Peterskill is a welcome addition to the ridge's climbing resources.

Hey I assume this area is subject to the same user limitations as Peterskill? Are they keeping the per day number the same or increasing it because of the new area? Thanks, if anyone knows.

So, does anyone know if the entire cliff is open. I've walked it from where it starts by the Mohonk Peterskill Trail as it warps around all the way back to the same trail on the other side of the ridge where it starts to drop down to the Peterskill. I didn't really see much that got me super psyched except a huge roof on the far end. Would appreciate any details!

I think Romano (natch) may have climbed the big roof.

Seth - both the allowed number of climbers and the day fee have gone up. I THINK they let in 100 climbers now, and the day fee is $10.

Chris - the left half of the cliff is not open. The mostly east-facing part is the new area. The large roof is not available for climbing.
