We just did this trip and it was off the chain! So we're doing it again.
We'll be meeting in front of the Schnippers at the ground floor of the New York Times Building on 41st street and 8th ave at 8:15am and walking over as a group to the Port Authority on 41st and 8th ave to buy our roundtrip tickets to New Paltz, NY ($44). Bus departs 8:30a. When we arrive, our guide will be there to greet us and drive us the 6 miles to the Mohonk Preserve, where we'll be outfitted with any gear we need, then, hike in, set up, and get climbing. Gear, pick up/drop off to park and bus station, park admission, and our guide's time are approximate $130 (with a minimum of 4 climbers. Get your friends to go and the price goes down. Word.) Please note: if we don't get 4 climbers, the cost per climber goes up. Register below by Fri, Jul 15, so I can make our reservations with the guide.
Here's what to pack for this time of the year. Hashtag your Instagram and Facebook pics with #outerthere so all your homies can get jealous or inspired and come out, too! And don't forget to check the twitter @Outerthere for updates!
