Over the weekend we had some unseasonably warm weather with high temperatures almost reaching 60 degrees both days–that sure sounds like rock climbing weather! Marc and I headed south to the Shawangunks, a.k.a. The Gunks, of New York for two days of fine climbing on excellent rock. The Gunks are perhaps the only place where almost every pitch climbs through a roof, even 5.5 pitches! It takes a bit of getting used to, but once adjusted to the style of climbing it becomes really enjoyable.
