    Due to financial priorities my boyfriend and I will not be able to go to the Gunks this year. Hopefully next year!

    So how long will this trip be and how good of a climber should I be?

    Driving all the way to the Gunks to visit Peterskill is like going to the Louvre to see the fountain outside. The West Trapps are where it's at. They are extremely close to eachother, but there are separate fees for each area. I've got guidebooks for the Trapps and Peterskill if any of you want to borrow them. I don't think I'll be needing them anytime soon.

      Blake, I know what you mean, but I am certainly not at the climbing level to do trad. If I am correct most of the routes at Trapps are trad?

      That's true, but you can set up top ropes on most of them by scrambling around to the top. As far as difficulty goes, there are tons of[masked]s that are perfect for beginners with trad. If you want some free training in trad climbing, I'd be happy to provide. Just need to find a good crag and some decent weather. I'm kind of tempted to sign up for this trip, I just don't know what I'll be doing then.

    My boyfriend and I are planning on climbing for three days. On our way back to the cities we will be stopping to visit my family in Western NY. I thought it would be awesome to make a group thing out of the climbing and meet some new people.
