I be swinging through NY for a couple days and was hoping to go check out the newly opened for climbing Thatcher State park on Wednesday the 12th. I'm looking to get on a couple of the 12's there and some of the instant classics of the cliff. My only real insistence for a sports climbing partner is that they use a Grigri and give a nice soft catch. I like my ankles intact. I have the gunksapps guidebook and all the gears.
