In concert with the purchasing of this property by the Mohonk Preserve and its members, the Open Space Institute, and the State of New York, the GCC and the Access Fund are working to open a new, world class bouldering area at the north end of the Shawangunks (Gunks).

The Gunks Climbers’ Coalition (GCC) is raising $100,000 for the management of the property for the first several years. Please donate whatever you can, through our donation page at gunksclimbers.org.

Come to the party to learn more. Hank Alicandri, the Preserve’s Chief Ranger/Director of Land Stewardship, will be speaking. We will have a video from BigUp Productions, along with others; a DJ; free and raffled swag.

$25 will get you in, get you fed, get you 2 drinks, and great company!

You may pay through our website or at the party.

Come to the Eastern premiere of Pat Ament’s new film,”THE DISCIPLES OF GILL”!

Legendary climber Pat Ament is coming to the NY/NJ area at the end of April/beginning of May.  Pat’s new film, “The Disciples of Gill,” is getting rave reviews. The film features John Gill – the greatest boulderer of all time.

Don’t miss this film. It is one of the best you’ll see on climbing, a tender, beautiful chronicle of the golden age of American bouldering. Climbing Magazine editor, Matt Samet calls this film, “one of the most splendid and beautiful meditations on climbing I have ever seen. It has made me a lifelong Pat Ament fan.”
