b. Bunkbed Wall

New York > Gunks > Peterskill
Access Issue: Tree Preservation and Rappelling Details

Description

The only wall visible from the parking lot, and the first to dry after a rain. Exposed rock, windy routes, shaded and reasonably protected belay area. A favorite area for guides and groups, as it has one of the few double-bolted anchors in the park and a good mix of route levels in close proximity.

Update:
There is a new set of bolts for anchors at the top of the cliff; they are centered over the route "Slumber Party".

Getting There

Exit the lower parking lot to the left; walk away from the fence with the information booth on your right. Join up with carriage road and fence on your right; bear right, go up small incline. Approach time: 2 minutes.

[Hide Comment] There appears to be only one single bolt at the top just over the lip for the arete now. Sep 17, 2009

[Hide Comment] jroo-vw, are you sure you were in the right place? Both bolts are present at the top of the arete (night owl, etc). Looked the same today as it did when I was there 5 yrs ago. Additionally, there are bolts a couple of feet over to anchor for sleepwalking, etc to the right of night owl.

Cheers,
