Hey all! I'll be in Upstate NY from July 11th - 22nd, and am hoping to find a partner for a day of climbing sometime between the 14th and 18th.
Last time I climbed the Gunks was when I was 14 years old (I'm 37 now). Been too long!
I probably won't be bringing my rack or rope, since I'll be traveling there from Seattle, but I could if needed.

I'm a skilled belayer, and have experience with both trad and sport (not that sport matters at the Gunks). I'm friendly, easy going, and not a douchebag. So there ya have it, let me know!

Cheers!
Scotty G

Any idea what difficulty grades you want to follow or lead?

Well, I typically lead up to mid elevens on trad, so translate that accordingly with the Gunks' "sandbagged" ratings.
For following trad, and for sport (leading and following), I can do up to around 12b/c (again, in "typical" YDS rating).

I'd be stoked to get you out climbing in the gunks - should be available one of those days. I'll update as we get closer...

Most excellent, thanks! Really looking forward to this; I missed out last year when I visited cause I couldn't find a partner.

I'll keep track of responses on this thread, and I'll PM my cell # wheen we get closer to the date.

Cheers,

kenr: Note that even though I can lead/follow those grades, I'm happy climbing any grade, if you happen to be way below that level. Just getting out and hitting some good rock is what I want!
cheers

Hi Scott

I am looking at going to the Gunks on Monday. Will you be free then?

I am not at the grade you suggested, last time i was at the gunks i followed 5.9 and lead 5.6/5.7. I have only a partial rack (4 cams, 4 tricams, 5 nuts and quick draws/slings) and a rope. I moved over from Australia this year and left my rack there thinking i wouldn't do much climbing, but now i am I'm starting to build a new one up as funds permit.

Don't know if you brought any gear over, if i don't find a partner with some gear to supplement i was thinking about setting up a toprope on something. Let me know if your interested.

My number is 215 350 4469

Ben
