All,

We are getting down to the wire and the weather is looking stellar! Keep you eyes on this message (I will be updating the lead message over the next few days...so please scan for changes) and thread for last minute details

1) We are meeting in the Trapps parking lot at 8:30 AM on Saturday. (Mitchal and I will be there early...look for the domesticated bovine and the wild cheetah). We will divide into groups and climb until dark.

Directions to the Trapps lot:

Follow 299 out of New Paltz until you come to a "T" in the road (interesection of 299 and 44/55. Take a right on 44/55 and follow past the hairpin turn, go under the bridge and begin looking for the parking lot on your right. (about 1/8 mile from bridge). Take a right into the parking lot.
See map:
http://newpaltz.hvnet.com/hikeclimb/mohkclmb.htm

2) Community dinner at the hostel Saturday night 7ish (menu: Appetizers: Chips and Dip/Mexican Beer. Main meal: spaghetti, meatballs, salad, garlic bread and brownies)
3) Community breakfast at the hostel on Sunday at 7AM
4) Meeting in the Trapps lot on Sunday at 8:00AM (so that we can park)
5) If you miss us in Trapps parking lot please check the bulletin boards we will leave messages as to where we are setting up top ropes etc.
6) if you would like to stay at the hostel and haven't already paid, call Craig directly (845)255-6676 and let him know that you are part of the PA gathering. There are still beds available. Craig does not accept checks, so bring cash or credit cards (for those of you that have not paid me directly).
7) Don't forget the $8 daily climbing fee (payable in cash to the rangers)

3) Community breakfast at the hostel on Sunday at 8AM
4) Meeting in the Trapps lot on Sunday at 9:00AM
5) If you miss us in Trapps parking lot please check the bulletin boards we will leave messages as to where we are setting up top ropes etc.

A suggestion:

Meet earlier on Sunday if you want to get in at the Trapps lot. The weather this weekend is supposed to be gorgeous, and the Trapps lot will fill up before 9am (seen it happen). Or, have an alternate meeting place - maybe the Uberfall area, for those who have to park in the Warwasing Lot and take the Stairmaster.

I will not be at the Trapps lot on Sunday - I will be setting up TRs on Sunday at PK, and will be going directly there (opens at 9am). There are routes for all levels of climber at PK, easy access to TR setting (bring extra webbing and static line), no crowds, and tons of excellent bouldering (or so I've seen and heard - a guidebook might be available at R&S). If I see you, great.

Tai is absolutely correct. You will not get a parking space in the West Trapps lot at 0900. You will be very lucky to get one at 0800, especially with the time change and the great weather.

I second the Uberfall suggestion. You should probably supply directions to the Wawarsing lot and the Visitor Center lot (yes, the Wawarsing lot might be full by 0900 also) with details as to how to find the Stairmaster and the Uberfall.

Sorry I''ll miss it, but I'll be thinking about y'all as I shred my tips on the JTree granite (oops, sorry, that's quartz monzonite).

Thanks Tim and Taino for your suggestions. I think we should discuss the alternative climbing areas Saturday night at the community dinner. For now, I will change Sunday's meeting time to 8AM...Gail

Uberfall

The Stair Master is right before the overlook. Look for steps leading up to the cliff. Stairmaster on your right, overlook on your left.

I don't suppose this gathering is restricted just to PA climbers so what do you think to a Canadian straggler joining in? If it carries any weight I WAS going to climb with Anne last week in PA till things got messed up :( . It seems to be a pattern emerging here as my partner for a few days in the Red just bailed on me. He went and made the STOOPID mistake of getting a job :evil: and they want him to actually work now. I still have to talk to another guy about the Red but I can drive to the Gunks on my own so.....??

Anyway if I go I will likely head down Friday afternoon and dirtbag at Camp Slime that evening, then take it from there. I would be into a group meal and some socializing and I will of course be bringing my rack if you are looking for someone to lead some climbs. Can you believe I haven't been to the Gunks this year :roll: sheesh, so many places to climb, good job I don't work eh?

And Anne, I promise not to solo TOO much, near you :P

I'll be driving up Sun morning so it looks like I'll see you at 8AM in the West Trapps Lot. My only question would be......how will we know each other? or will we all just meet at the Trail head?

You might want to check this thread before heading up - Gail mentioned that at the community dinner there would be a discussion on alternate places to climb/places to meet on Sunday. I will have access to a computer, Saturday night; I'll post an update when I get home from the dinner.

Everyone is required to have a "Hello, my name is..." sticker on the left side of their chest. You will not be allowed to participate, except for being a belay slave, if you don't have one or if it's not exactly on the left side of your chest.
