The Gunks

While home tried to climb as much as possible. Unfortunately I only got to spend one of those days up in the Shawangunks, or Gunks, outside of New Paltz, NY. The exposed cliff faces rise dramatically out of the trees just an hour north of New York City. The first routes were put up back in the 30's and the cliffs have continued to be a world famous trad climbing destination in the Northeast. I only had one friend to climb with, so we didn't get to take too many photos. Here is Garrett at the top of the second pitch of Classic(5.7)
