New York – The Gunks

Gunks Gallery of Photographs

The Shawangunks, or “Gunks” are located west of the Hudson River in New York State. I have been climbing here since 1981 and consider it my home crag. The rock is conglomerate and has many horizontal cracks, allowing for a multitude of excellent easy multipitch trad routes, and exciting yet easy overhangs and ceilings.
