Draft of the Minnewaska Master Plan and Environmental Impact Statement Released

The draft of the Minnewaska Master Plan and Environmental Impact Statement was released on 9/30/2009. From initial inspection, it describes expansion of the Peter’s Kill Climbing area to include climbing access to the Dickie Barre cliff area with constructing additional parking spaces a possibility, but no additional access to climbing in other areas of the park, and no ice climbing.

Key sections to read are on pages 105, 155-116, 120.

On page 132, they acknowledge the contributions from the GCC:
The Gunks Climbers Coalition, an affiliate of the national Access Fund, has been very active in improving and maintaining the climbing area as part of the national Adopt-a-Crag effort. Coalition volunteers have assisted with research in the climbing area and development of the new climbing area, the Dickie Barre.

They also include a map of the planned Shawangunk Gateway Campground.
