Description: Climbers arriving at trailheads to popular climbing areas in Adirondack Park, NY were surveyed as to the types of resource impacts they found to be offensive. Climbers were also asked about their degree of concern regarding crowding, noise and management of climbing areas. Some resource impacts, such as damage to trees as a result of poor climbing practices, are generally offensive to climbers, while other resource impacts common to climbing areas are less of a concern. Crowding was reported by the majority of climbers as an important concern, but noise appears to be less of an issue. The majority of those surveyed did not favor more active agency management of climbing areas.
