I'm looking to get up to the Gunks as much as possible this spring and summer. Most of my time off is on the weekends, but I'm blessed with a huge amount of time off at work, and could take weekdays off every now and then if that works for folks.
I used to climb in the Gunks regularly, about 6 years ago when I went to college in Poughkeepsie. I'm getting back into climbing after a hiatus, confident in the 5.11s in the gym. I have a trad rack and rope, a decent head for anchors and placements, and am a very safe belay. I live in the city and don't have a car, so ideally if anyone wants to carpool up, that'd be great. If not, I don't mind taking the bus and meeting folks in New Paltz.
I'm happy to belay and follow on more difficult climbs (and improve my knowledge), or cruise on classic easier and moderate routes with folks at around the same level as me.
