Catskills Waterfall Rappelling - Day 2

  • August 17, 2014 · 9:30 AM

Route TBD, but it will involve rappelling a couple of falls, bush whacking and scrambling. 



Meetup Location: McDonald's right off the exit. 350 New York 212, Saugerties, NY 12477 at 9am. We'll drive to the trail head and drop a car on the way. 

Car Pooling: Drivers, please offer rides if you are willing. Passengers, please contribute to tolls and gas. 

Gear: I'm intentionally not including a gear list - you should know what to bring. 

This is only for experienced rappellers - Having done it a few times makes you a beginner, not "experienced". 

This is not a guided trip. This is an inherently dangerous activity with hazards that include falling rocks, hiking/scrambling over slippery rocks and boulders, rappelling itself, and the general dangers of hiking. 

If you're unsure about your experience, email me (Andre) and we'll discuss.
