This one is for all the ladies out there!
Join us for a weekend of girl time at the crag! Come to PATC-MS's women's only weekend trip to the Gunks, the Yosemite of the East!
A chance to meet other female climbers and hop on to some fun multi-pitch trad climbs... the Gunks has a wonderful array of fantastic climbs at all climbing levels.
The club will help coordinate transportation and pay for camping on Friday and Saturday night at the new AAC Campground!
There will be an overhangs/bouldering clinic on Saturday morning... the Gunks is well known for its horizontal cracks and roofs and is the perfect place for this clinic.
We will be having a Saturday night potluck at the campgrounds (there is a covered pavillion, fire ring, drinking water, and more at the campsite).
The Shawangunks (aka the Gunks), New Paltz, NY. It's about a 6 hour drive from the DC area.
Please note that the Gunks is a FEE AREA managed by the Mohonk Preserve. The fee is $17/day or purchase an annual membership for $95 (which works out to 6 days of climbing to pay for it).
This is not a guided event. We will try out best to pair up followers with leaders, but do not expect it. There are a few places to top-rope as well, but it is primarily a multi-pitch trad climbing area. The Shawangunks still has other great things to offer like hiking and a lot of fantastic bouldering! Hopefully we have enough leaders who will be joining and can take up one or two followers. Leaders will have priority during sign-up.
Friday, August 14 - Sunday, August 16
