PE 1653: Shawangunks Rock Climbing - Fall Break

Climber Outdoors at the Gunks

Enjoy world-class rock climbing at one of the premier areas in the US, the Shawangunks! After two introductory classes at the Lindseth Climbing Center, we will travel to the 'Gunks for 4 days of rock climbing that will teach you the skills to follow multi-pitch climbs. During fall foliage the natural beauty of the 'Gunks is superb and the climbing is some of the best in the world. A student-to-instructor ratio of 2:1 ensures individual attention and plenty of climbing for all.
