WOW Women Who Crush Gunks Climbing Trip

What We Love

  • Women empowering women
  • Climb in the legendary Shawangunks

Your Day

Few things compare to climbing a mountain face with other adventuresome women. Join Discover Outdoors for this all-day climbing clinic and learn how to take your rock skills to the next level. Climbing guiding will be provided by a team of AMGA certified women guides.

While climbing, you will be harnessed and belayed with ropes, while scaling rock slabs.Throughout the day, your guides will be there to assist, encourage and guide the group as you all learn the ropes. There is no better view than a view well-earned, and your troop will earn these vistas while pushing their boundaries and stepping out of their comfort zones. Full of pride and with smiling faces the group will head back home ready to tell everyone about their new adventure.

Level 3

Easy Active - Perfect for Active First Timers

Level 3 trips will give you a broad sense of what climbing and hiking are all about. Test yourself on intermediate terrain, including light rock scrambles and ascending multiple peaks. The trips will invigorate you and inspire you to continue strengthening your skills.


Three to five hours is standard. Prepare for the trip by jogging three miles or exercising two or three days a week.


Plan on getting starter miles under your belt. You’ll be hiking three to six miles on this trip, the average distance run in an hour-long basketball game.


You’ll be hiking on rolling terrain with bare rock surfaces, steeps, roots and small boulders.

Elevation Change

There could be up to 1,000 feet of change in the day.


From sea level to 3,000 feet.


Weather conditions can be quite different from the city in the mountainous regions we visit. Temperatures can be quite cooler as we head north or to higher elevations. Keep your eyes out for an email from our team a few days in advance of your trip. That email will provide updated weather conditions and will alert you to anything additional you should put in your pack to prepare. We head outside in any weather, as long as we know it's safe, and we don't let a little rain or wind ruin a chance for an adventure. You can contact us at [email protected] if you have any questions about preparing for trail conditions.
