Mid-October is about as good as it gets in the Gunks. You've already gotten some gear recommendations, and yes, you'll need a good trad rack, including smaller cams then you have now. Double ropes are good if you know how to use them effectively, but plenty of people manage fine with a single.

If it was you and friend coming over to climb together, than you'd need all this stuff, but if you are planning to find someone here to climb with (and that shouldn't be too hard) then why not use their rack and rope and just come over with your shoes, harness, and belay device? Hauling all that trad gear over for a few days of climbing seems like a lot of unnecessary effort (and money in overweight charges).

The Mohonk day pass is no more than you'd spend for a few hours at a climbing gym. Thanks for explicitly disregarding people who trespass on private land out of some self-centered sense of entitlement and then brag about it on the internet.
