Mountain Skills Climbing Guides and Gunks Rock Climbing Instruction

Gunks Rock Climbing – 845-853-5450 – – Guiding the Gunks and Beyond

Great June

This has been a interesting month for Mountain Skills Climbing Guides.  We have been doing self rescue courses at MPHC down in the city on Monday evenings and just this past Monday I did a power point presentation about the Gunk’s featuring photographer and long time guide of Mountain Skills, Matt Calardo.  Matt’s photos are amazing and if you would like to check them out just visit his site at Matt is also doing the photo shoot for Shape Magazine for the guide service this week.

Besides working with the great groups we have climb with us we also get great characters.  Roy is by far the most interesting character around.  With his many stories about Peter Croft, his Karate Dojo, and his travels, Roy is a real treat to climb with.  He wanted to climb High Exposure 5.6+ the other day to remember how crazy he was back when he used to lead it.

We had a great time with no people around and finishing up and down in under 2 hours.
