Are cards required to climb at the gunks? Just coming in for the day. I belong to the AAC. Or is there a daily donation?

You'll need a day pass or an annual card. I'm not sure what they cost, because it's been years since i've bought a day pass and I haven't bought this season's annual pass yet. You can find more information on the Mohonk Preserve website though.

Annual pass is $97 I think. Climbing day pass is $17.

Peterskill is $10/day/person if you're just looking to TR.

Ok thanks folks. Sorry if this was posted on the website. I could only find the yearly membership info.

Kinda interesting that with seeming regularity people will bitch on Mountain Project about the Preserve fees yet there's nary a peep about the similar Peterskill fees.

Preserve and PK fees are only similar at the annual pass level, and, frankly, it's generally not the locals (who are the bulk of the pass-buyers, esp. at PK) who are bitching about the fees. It's the couple-weekends-a-year folks who live 5 hours away who chafe at the $17/day fee. And these folks don't seem to go to Peterskill, presumably because it's not "The GUNKS" they crave (multipitch, famous routes etc). Which is just fine - you don't hear the weekend crowd complaining about the crowds at PK like they do at the Trapps.

Frankly as long as the $$$ goes back into the area to preserve it than there should be no discussion. Id rather pay for a day outside than a day inside no matter where it is (ok maybe some places I'd skip).

Back when I climbed there regularly (8 years ago), they also had a student discount - highschool, college, graduate school, etc. So check in to that if it's applicable to you.

iirc, it knocked about 20 bucks off annual pass

There is still a student discount on annual membership. Show your school ID when submitting the form. It is $10 off.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
