Mountain Skills Climbing Guides and Gunks Rock Climbing Instruction

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

Stoney Clove/ HoBo Wall

Took a drive into the notches yesterday to assess the damage from the rain and warm temps the other day.  The ice is still hanging in.  It did take a hit but with the cold predicted and new snow coming things should be back in good shape by the weekend.  I have always looked at some ice flows just off of RT 28 across from the Emerson.  We decided to finally have a look.  Maybe six to eight different lines/variations can be had.  The climbs aren’t super long but will provide you with some fun ice.  I’m sure people have climbed here before.  We decided to call it the Hobo Wall since it’s right off the railroad tracks.  If you would like to try ice climbing in the Catskill’s give us a call at 845-853-5450 or check out our website at  We also have a new Ice Climbing Conditions page at
