Gunks, NY

Peter's Kill AreaPeter's Kill Area's -Official- Closing date for the winter is December 15.

East Peak Ampitheater

Dol Guldur - 5.11c The top section (the original finish) above the arch has become extremely loose in some places. Apparently, in an attempt to clean some loose stuff, someone made it worse. Some of the holds that shorter folks would use traversing back right are gone.

Cathole Pass

Pegasus - 5.9 WARNING:LOOSE ROCK

There is a loose block at the top of Pegasus beneath the small roof, on the left side. Be aware - Don't use it as a handhold.

East Peak Fall Wall

Super Power - 5.11d?

I ripped a very essential sidepull crimp off of 'Super Power' (never did the climb, though). Originally rated @ 5.11d, it could be a twelve now. (it was an accident)

East Peak Merimere Face

Thor's Hammer - 5.9

A Connecticut Classic.

Sleeping Giant Chin

Micron - 5.10b

This climb is sweet. As with most climbs at the Giant, toprope is preferred because trad on this mountain is scary..pro pops. But this is a face climb anyway. It has two variations, one ending just to the right of the flat-topped clif edge, the other goes straight up via a crazy dyno for the very top edge of the cliff. This second variation increases the overall difficulty dramatically...TRY BOTH! The best feature about this climb is its solid, positive crimpholds the whole way...forget what you heard, this climb is definately not chossy.

Sleeping Giant Chin

Bolted - 5.8+ WARNING:BIRD CRAP

A really fun climb, with a great rap station at its base, but just be careful...occassionally it's splattered with bird crap.

As outdoor enthousiasts, we should all respect the cliffs and the surrounding areas. Leave the cliff area free of all trash. If you see trash, pick a little up. This way we can continue to climb at beautiful areas. At East Peak, please appease the authorities and obey park hours. Just SAY NO to high-visibility chalking on the rock.
