Casual Gunkage: Spring Climbing in the Gunks
The Shawangunk Ridge, better known as "The Gunks" is one of the meccas of climbing on the East Coast. These cliffs sport a variety of trad routes with long histories and famous climbers behind many first ascents. The crag really took off as a destination with the arrival of the notorious "Vulgarians," who pioneered many of the modern, hard free routes, building off of the work already put in place by earlier generations. The Gunks is THE place to go in the Northeast for a good day out on the cliffs.
