Rockslides and "slab slides" in New England and New York

Rockslides consist of loose, sometimes still unstable, rock and gravel that has travelled downslope. These exist in the Northeast, but a more common phenomenon is the "slab slide", where a thin layer of topsoil (including vegetation) has slipped off an underlying granite slab. The resulting scars can be miles long, and often provide a convenient route to the top of a mountain - if you don't mind a little exposure.
Water and algae make a dangerous combination on slides, and that's saying nothing about snow and ice. Of course, with proper equipment, snow and ice can be what attract people to slides in the first place.
