Carpooling.

 

Accomodations

We typically camp at the MUA or Camp slime. It’s free but primitive (no facilities).

These tent-sites are limited in number and are available on a first-come, first served basis.

Alternately, there are many motels in the area that can be shared economically by 4 or more climbers.  I particularly recommend the 87 Motel (http://www.87motel.com/directions.html\) in New Paltz.

      Okay! David, coming back Sunday night would actually work better for me. So if you want to take your car, I could drive down with you tomorrow and come back Sunday night.

    Can I still get a ride with some one? Anyone still have room in their car? Can leave tomorrow any time but have to come back Monday. Happy to share a tent or can bring a one man tent. Have a full rack of trade gear and 20 years experience.

      I will be sharing my tent with my climbing partner from Philadelphia. It's a big tent if someone else wants to join us.

    Sounds great. Will have to get stronger for the Gunks. Can't wait to get back on the sharp end.

    I don't have much experience with trad, but I can lead climb and belay. I have a rope and a grigri. I'd love to come if there is room and if you don't mind taking a beginner at trad...
