Shawangunks Rock Climbing

Enjoy world-class rock climbing at one of the premier areas in the US, the Shawangunks! After introductory classes at the Lindseth Climbing Wall, we will travel to the ’Gunks for a 3-day rock camp that will introduce the skills to do multi-pitch climbs. Whether it is during fall foliage or spring wildflowers and bird migrations, the natural beauty of the ’Gunks is superb and the climbing is some of the best in the world. A student-to-instructor ratio of 2:1 ensures individual attention and plenty of climbing for all Attendance Policy: All classes are mandatory.
