Located only 90 miles from NYC, the Shawangunks mountain range, or "The Gunks," is a world-class rock climbing destination. Whether you are an experienced climber, looking to escape the gym, or are completely new to climbing, REI's AMGA certified guides will provide you with excellent, friendly and thorough instruction. In addition, we will provide all the technical equipment needed to take you on a climbing adventure in a relaxed learning environment. Participants will enjoy a full day of climbing (approximately 9:30 am-4:30 pm), round-trip transportation to/from the New Paltz, NY Bus Station. A private guide will be provided for you and your party based on a 4:1 climber to guide ratio. Also included in the cost of the course is your day pass to Peter's Kill Climbing area. Your guide will meet you at the New Paltz, NY Bus Station @ approximately 8:30 am, and then you're off to the climbing location. At the climbing area, you'll get equipped with the necessary shoes, harness, and helmet and then spend the day on a variety of climbs ranging in difficulty at the beautiful Peter's Kill Climbing Area, located within Minnewaska State Park. After climbing, we will return you to the bus station/parking area for the 5:00 pm departure.

  • Enjoy a great day at a world class climbing venue!
