Gunks offers staunchly traditional climbing (ie gear) with incredibly classic routes at all grades 5.2 through 5.13+. We'll link up 0800 each morning at the deli next to the EMS in Gardner, NY. From there we'll figure out routes, partners, etc. Anyone without a partner can climb w Bob Graver.
Travel: Get there as best you can - carpools definitely recommended.
I've reserved the entire bunkroom (6 bunks) FRI-MON at the New Paltz Hostel in town. There are 4 bunks left ($30/night) - contact me directly if you want one of these, otherwise I'll cancel them a couple days prior. As of yesterday there were also other rooms available. You can contact them directly (www.newpaltzhostel.com) to reserve one if you'd like.
Camp Slime: Free w/ your $17 per day climbing pass. ~15 spots for primitive camping. Porta- potties near-by.
Creekview: Tent sites w flush toilets and showers - $20 per day for 2-people. (www.creekviewcampsite.com)
CLUB WILL PAY FOR A SELECT # of CAMPSITES. When signing up, please note if you intend to stay at Creekview campground
Plenty of options (again Google & LS). Can discuss/ finalize each day at morning link ups.
Hike/ bike/ explore the preserve and/or the surrounding area. The climbing, while incredible, is only a small part of what makes the Shawangunks Ridge one of the Nature Conservancy's "75 Last Great Places on Earth".
E-mail your intentions to the listserve and I'll try and keep a rough track of who's going and doing what. If you have any specific questions contact me directly and I'll try and answer them.
See ya there!
Robert (Bobby) Graver
