Catskills Waterfall Rappelling - Day 2

  • Aug 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.

    I'm packing for my next trip and I realized I'm missing two large orange dry bags and a pelican hard camera case. Did they end up anyone's car by any chance?

    Hi! It may be early, but I need a ride. I am able to meet you in any borough, Newark, or Hoboken (anything close to NYC) since I am leaving from Brooklyn. LMK if you have a spot for me! :)
