Description

Situated near New Tork City, the Gunks are home to a number of wonderful cliffs and rock climbing routes. And on this trip, you will get to enjoy not one, but two amazing rock climbing days.

This 2-day rock climbing course is open to people of multiple skill levels. As a result, it is ideal for beginners, intermediate climbers and experts. So, no matter what kind of experience you are searching for, be it a challenging multi-pitch route, or a cliff where you can learn some new skills and techniques, the Gunks has you covered. Furthermore, we will provide you with all of the necessary equipment you may need. That includes a helmet, harness, rock shoes and rope.

Along with the enjoyment factor, during this rock climbing trip, we will also provide instruction whenever possible. From basic climbing skills to more advanced climbing techniques, we will do our best to make you a better climber by the end of the second day.

While this trip is open to people of all skill levels, due to the physical nature of rock climbing, all participants should be in good physical condition.

Alpine Guide

AMGA Certified Alpine and Rock Guide, New York State Licensed Guide, Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician, AIARE (avalanche training) Level I, II and III, Leave No Trace Master Educator, General Class Amateur Radio Operator -KC2IZD, Eagle Scout. Author of "An Ice Climber's Guide to the Catskill Mountains", and co-author of "A Rock Climber's Guide to the Peter's Kill Climbing Area".

I began climbing in 1988, and guiding in 1991. My first visit to the Gunks was during Columbus Day weekend in 1990. After a good number of return visits, I began guiding here in the fall of 1995 commuting (from my hometown in PA) for work until moving here in 1997. During the season of 1997, I worked part time at Rock and Snow until becoming a Level One Certified Rock Guide in October. From then on, I have guided full-time and consider myself lucky to be able to make a career out of guiding. I have shared the experience of climbing with many guests at many different locations throughout the country - some guests have climbed with me regularly for over 20 years. Over that time I have swapped leads, shared experiences, grown friendships, and set future climbing goals.

While I enjoy all types of climbing, I prefer the solitude, self-reliance, and commitment you gain from climbing traditional multi-pitch routes.

I strive to offer the most professional services possible, and continually work on improving my standards. I have been involved with the AMGA since 1993; participated in the Basic and Advanced Rock Guides courses, successfully completed two rock exams - Level One and Rock Guide, participated in both the Alpine and Advanced Alpine Guides courses, successfully completed the Alpine Exam, and continue to work toward my ski certification. I served two full terms on the AMGA Board of Directors (2009 - 2015) and Accreditation Committee, and as an instructor for their Rock Instructor and Single Pitch Instructor Courses.

It was a perfect day of learning to Ice Climb. The guide, Simon, was awesome! He picked, and fixed great routes for me to successfully scale, challenge myself, learn and have fun! Multiple successful first ascents on different difficulty lines! It was exactly what I wanted the day to be! The "Aprés Climb," at a local Brewery after was fun. Had a beer and an appetizer, a lot of laughs and good conversation! Well done mates! Well done!
