Frost Valley YMCA at the Gunks

We took out the Frost Valley YMCA to the Mohonk Preserve to climb on Friday and Saturday.  Friday we went to the Trapps and climbed all the Uberfall routes with the kids and counselors.  On Saturday they climbed at the Near Trapps.

The kids already knew how to tie the figure 8 knot, lowering correctly, belaying, and the correct commands for starting a climb and finishing a climb.

These kids are a real treat.  They are all excited about climbing and respecting nature.  The counselors really do a good job keeping them under control and minding their manners during the day.  We all enjoy taking these summer camps climbing.  It’s fun to interact with the kids and to show them the things we like about being outside.
