About Giants Workshop:

One of the best kept secrets of The Gunk's. Home to steep rock, fantastic boulder problems, and classics like, Toys for Tots and Project X.
Nearest town or city: New Paltz
Directions: Get to Gunks :) Walk either Undercliff Road to Rhododendron Bridge and past it (don't cross it) staying right at all other road intersections until the trail head up right, just after passing the majority of the Humpty Dumpty hillside (hillside of boulders). The trail does pass by an amazing assortment of boulders and top-ropable routes, and if you wander out among the rest you'll find plenty more. And there are crevices deep enough to explore as caves, too!
Latitude, Longitude:
Access Issues: A fairly large number of Mohonk Mtn House guests pass by and through this area. Not sure who owns the actual bit of land, but tact, decency, and secretiveness might be called for here.
When to Climb: Summer
Quantity of Climbs: Month
