Someone has written, in silver marker, "Leave No Trace?" near the base of Minty and High E. There may be more messages, I just haven\'t found them. Using my best graphology, I would guess that it\'s a female.

Very strange. Anyone else find those messages?

I've seen about six of them, all the same, on rock and logs near the start of climbs. WTF?
Here's one at the start of Minty, above a chalked up hold.

the irony, it kills.

AML, have you let a ranger know where you've seen other tags?

I don't know if it's been reported to the rangers...I will do that today. Is it marker? or as someone else suggested, liquid chalk? I didn't try to wipe it off.

I climbed High E yesterday and saw the "leave no trace". I initially assumed that it was just chalk but now that you mention it maybe it was a marker.

graffiti in general: i found this article (“removing graffiti from historic masonry”, national park service brief ) to be a helpful resource. it overviews types of marking, types of solvents, and their reactions with certain types of rocks. it’s not a recipe book, so any particular case still requires experimenting, but it approaches the problem from the premise that the rock is a treasure and overpainting is not an option, which is exactly (or should be) a climber’s perspective.

figure out what it is and hit it fast! in my own experience with graffiti (spray paint), i wish i had gotten to it sooner, when i could have erased it entirely, rather than later — i got 90% of the paint off and left a faded but still unattractive trace.

in the case of the gunks: whatever else you do, notify the rangers asap.

Retarded ass Yankees.
This doesn't really make any sense, it almost sounds as if there is still a little resentment about the south getting their ass kicked in the of War Northern Agression. What if the person doing this from lets say, the south. Then what? blame it on inbreeding i guess.

The resentment is for the way of life that most northerners live. Full of [mostly]rude assholes living at break neck speed, gun grabbing lunatics, and silly dillys. Had this been in the south I would have said retarded ass rednecks.

Quit being so bitchy, Mitchy.

This is the stuff we have used in Adopt-A-Crag events here in CT. The spray on stuff melts right off with this and it's biodegradable.

Thanks for the advice Morgan.

In coordination with the Mohonk Preserve, I'm going to collect Gunks tagging data and coordinate responses. Please send me all info on tagging you have, and contact me if you would like to be part of the clean-up effort. You can reach me through the MP email facility.


Also, please deny the taggers the pleasure of seeing the effects of their destructive efforts on the internet by just sending me the info and not posting about it.
