The definitive bouldering guide to this classic area
Introducing the first edition of Gunks Bouldering! Andy Salo and Hillary Guzik have done a spectacular job of presenting the Gunks boulders in full color. Detailed maps help you navigate, a comprehensive intro gives the inside scoop on fun in New Paltz, and the action photos are guaranteed to psyche you up to send.
More about the book: Just outside the lively town of New Paltz, two hours from New York City, lie the historic rocks of the Shawangunks, ground zero for countless dedicated climbers. There’s great (and famous) roped climbing at the Gunks, but the bouldering here also has deep roots, with hard classics dating back 50 years. Many blocs rise directly from carriage roads that provide casual approaches — and perfectly flat landings. This is the definitive bouldering guide to the Trapps, Near Trapps, and Peter’s Kill, brought to you by the core local team that created the Gunks Apps.
