Mountain Skills Climbing Guides and Gunks Rock Climbing Instruction

It’s November 29th and we are still climbing rock in the Gunks

Lillian and I climbed at the Trapps on Sunday November 29th.  It was amazing out with temps close to 50.  We started out climbing Minty 5.3 in 3 pitches to the top.   3 Raps brought back to our packs.  Rapping off this area is a little more complicated since the tree on top of pitch 2 has died.

Once we got back to our bags we headed down to the Guides Wall and climbed Finger Locks 5.5 with the last pitch of Hyjeck’s Horror 5.4.  That last pitch is great face climbing with a thin crux move at a small overlap.  2 Raps back to our bags basically got us to the end of the day.  Pretty amazing for the end of November.
